We arrived late at night after walking around the area. We were staying near Taksim Square because we didn't want to be in the middle of the main tourist areas like where this restaurant was. We ordered a beef in tagine and beef in a pastry parcel. The pastry dish was not cooked to order and it was not hot... More

Rumeli and Mosiac are next door to each other and customers can choose from both menus. We took advantage of this and both the starter and mains were disappointing. My meal more resembled baby food in consistency, sloppy yogurt with tomato sauce, once I found the meat it was entirely tasteless. Both these restaurants are overpriced for the quality of... More

I came to this restaurant having found it in one of the guide books and gave it a try, It was excellent and specializes in a varied cuisine from different parts of Turkey. My only regret about the place is that it lost a great and personable waiter who made my dining experiences wonderful. If you came twice or three... More

Stopped here after visiting the Hagia Sophia and the restaurant was recommended by our tour guide. It was a very good recommendation. Very friendly service and great choice of food. The food was of very high quality, well presented and good value for money. This is definitely not a tourist trap and is well worth a visit.

I just had one of the best mixed grills. I was undecided what to have so I took the waiters suggestion. Excellent choice. Not only was the food very good but the staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant has a great atmosphere in a busy street. Well done guys.

The serve ketchup-based sauce. Charge 10% for the service. Interior is not very clean. Toilets does not smell fresh. At least, food is decent, but the prices should be 20% lower.

Very nice meal on the rooftop terrace. Not quite the views others may have a little higher up, or even closer to the sea - but pleasant to have the street sounds floating up. Service was accurate, pleasant and smiley and there was no rush; they always seemed to appear just as we were starting to think they'd been just... More
