In the winter months, Cibalikapi occupies a sweet, ramshackle old wooden building on the Golden Horn, and should not be missed when dining out in Istanbul.rnrnA maritime décor of glass buoys, fishing nets and lobster pots crowd the warm and intimate wooden interior. Traditional old Turkish and Greek tunes play in the background, adding to the slightly nostalgic atmosphere(without being naff) while you pick your dishes, all made, as with all the top fish restaurants in the city, with the freshest fish bought that day at the fish markets. rnrnSidika Karaman, the owner of Cibalikapi, meanwhile has just opened up a summer venue, to cater to discerning Istanbullis’ taste for seasonal dining. If it’s summer many make a point of not eating indoors. Located in the pleasant Asian suburb of Moda, the summer venue is charming despite the lack of a sea view. rnrnIn both you get all the classics, best accompanied by a few glasses of raki.
