Charming Beylerbeyi Square is buzzing with all kinds of fish and kebab restaurants as well as cafés and tea houses. If you come from the south, the first restaurant you'll come across on the back road is Villa Bosphorus. Hidden behind a huge brick wall, this fish restaurant occupies a private little pink-hued villa with a square of its own overlooking the water. Wrought iron tables and chairs are scattered about a lush garden terrace shaded by weeping willows and bougainvillea vines. Fish dominates the menu, followed by lamb and chicken. The oven-baked helva here is famous.
