Nice and bright galery on Istiklal Caddesi filled with restaurants. We ate at Kimene restaurant and had a perfect meal : fresh seabream.

Unfortunately, it was raining or drizzling when we got to the Flower Passage, and everything was closed. But even just the buildings were lovely to see. I really, really wish the restaurants had been open. It would have been an absolutely fantastic place to stop for a glass of wine.

We stoped by and walked The Flower Passage on our first night in the Taksim Square area. I had read that there were some nice little sit down restaurants here and our hotel clerk had suggested that one could get some nice fish dinner there. As you enter the what is more of a covererd courtyard you are greeted by... More

We checked out the 'street' because of the history involved with (I found the Wikipedia page during our research on Istanbul and then had to see it). We didn't eat there (we were on a 'greasy spoon' budget) but the menus looked delicious and the space was quiet and bright so I think we would have loved it. There weren't... More

My partner and I enjoyed a lovely lunch here during our recent visit to Istanbul and found it be a wonderful break away from the hustle and bustle of istiklal street. Yes, there are cheaper options for lunch in the area but the ambience and setting made this worthwhile for us!

We were in Istanbul last Christmas time and decided one evening to have a meal in the Cicek Pasaji. We used the Taksim tram to get there and this put us in a happy frame of mind. The tram was rammed full of people and we had to stand at the front next to the driver. It was insanely funny;... More

I went here twice, tried two different restaurants and didn't think the mezes were as amazing as I had heard. I actually thought the menus were a bit limiting and overpriced. However, the ambience is amazing so just for that, I would say check it out. I figured it was touristy but my local Turkish friend recommended it and said... More
