The fish restaurants with their unique fishy smell are packed at night. Interspersed with spice and nut shops selling locum and apple tea (Elma). Lamps, souvenirs, ceramics and jewellery. A mosh mash of Retail Therapy in a fish market!! Fried mussels with garlic sauce is a must. Beware of restaurant touts who promise the best fresh fish coming from The... More

A bit pricey stuff around. Good cafes and restaurants, unfortunately, hard to find. Crowded all the time. Mercan restaurant is no good anymore.

This short bazaar street offers a wonderful selection of fish and eateries! You can feast your eyes and stomach quickly and for a nice price. Some are pushy, but just follow the locals for a good meal.

Anyone visiting İstiklal Street must find a way to go through this little side road to enjoy it.There are many little eateries in the main road where you can eat very good at reasonable price.If you go through Nevizade Road,you can pay slightly higher but also have good food and live music at yr table during night time.

This little area is well worth the detour off the main promenade. There is an abundance of street food, packed restaurants and bars and a great atmosphere. Plenty of rooftops to perch yourself on... and there will be no shortage of offers....

Crouded streets full of little shops, markets and restautants.People working there are very friendly and polite.Try going on terraces for the smoking area and view on Istanbul.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
