Bishop Yesilkoy – Friendly place with good food

Yesilkoy is located by the Marmara sea, very close to Istanbul’s biggest airport Atatürk. Yesilkoy was named Ayastefanos until 1926 and in Ottoman times, Greek people used to live in this small fishing village. That’s why there are still lots of fish restaurants placed by the sea. It is also very nice how Greek and Turkish people live together in peace.

I went to Bishop Yesilkoy one Friday evening to have dinner with my friends. The restaurant has very nice interior design with 4 floors. I was also told that some special events are held in this place because they have plenty of room and tables for that.

Since the place is located in the very middle of town, it’s mostly visited by people who live in Yesilkoy or nearby.The owner is a very nice guy and he welcomes anyone who might walk into his place.

We had the chance to find a table outside on the street. At some point you might get distracted by the noise coming from street, but you still enjoy the vivid lights.

They have very nice traditional Turkish food as well as international cuisine which was very delicious and also offer a large wine, beer and cocktail list. I would definitely recommend you have the Nutella shots before you end the night.

It is also worth going there for breakfast as the menu looks so yummy!

If you are travelling to Istanbul and staying near the airport, this place should be on your must-visit list.
