Less is more ... rather than overwhelming you with volumes of travel tips, here is a specific list of exclusive recommendations with Mr & Mrs Crystal's stamp of approval.



On an intimate waterside summer patio on the Asian side of the Bosphorous River, Korfez is impossibly romantic and a true hidden gem. Try the signature dish - salt-baked seabass (tuzda balik) served at the table with a spectacular ceremony by solemn waiters who set the platter alight and literally chisel the fish out of its salty enclosure. It may be a mission to get there (via the restaurant’s private skiff) but the spectacular setting is well worth the adventure.
