Great food, poor service

First time we have visited and we were very impressed with the food. The service however was terrible. We waited over 15 minutes to order a drink and from then on we had to ask for everything. Nobody asked how our meals were or if we wanted another drink. We had to ask for the dessert menu as we... read more

A third visit to this family-run, well-priced Turkish restaurant, where you´ll both be made to feel most welcome and sample the most authentic Turkish cuisine, to my mind, on the South Coast. They also have a good range of well-priced, tasty Turkish wines on the menu

Amazing food. We had the set menu and ordered a bottle of wine. The service was brilliant. Can't fault anything. Would definitely go back again and again.

We came across this delightful Turkish/Mediterranean restaurant this evening and decided to try the Meze meal for two. This proved to be a great choice, with 8 different dishes plus bread, and all of which were very tasty. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for delicious food, pleasant atmosphere, and good service.

I have visited the Istanbul Restaurant many times over the past few year, the food is always of a high standard, excellent quality and delicious. The service is always first class and very attentive and if you visit on a warm sunny day you may get a table outside so you really feel like you are on holiday. I will... More

We've eaten here on a number of occasions and each time enjoyed the whole experience. It's on the seafront and so in the early evening or afternoon sitting outside is an option to enjoy the pier and sea views or later on to take in the sunsets! The service has always been very good and never rushed. For the food... More
