Fodor's Review

Popular with locals and visitors alike, Giritli offers a prix-fixe multicourse dinner menu of well-prepared Cretan specialties that includes unlimited local alcoholic drinks (wine or rakı). At least 15 different cold mezes—such as sea bass ceviche, herb-covered cubes of feta cheese with walnuts and olives, and various uncommon wild greens—are followed by hot starters like fried calamari or octopus leg in olive oil. The main course is a choice among several

grilled fish, followed by dessert. With its whitewashed walls, colored lights, and blue trim, the restaurant's relaxed garden feels like a slice of the Greek islands in Istanbul. A limited lunch menu is also available.
