Nearby Agia Sophia, this restaurant is not surrounded by others trying to get your custom. Nice relaxed atmosphere, good menu and wine list. Very good service and reasonable (for a tourist area) prices. I would eat there again.

We were recommended here by our hotel and reading all the other reviews people obviously like it but for me it was disappointing on several fronts. Firstly we were taken upstairs to a room with zero atmosphere and no other diners. Secondly the menu was plastered with poor photographs of the food. Décor was a mish-mash of lights with awful...

We dined on a Friday night having reserved in advance. The restaurant is small and intimate and filled up quickly. The atmosphere however was relaxed and convivial. Service was prompt and unfussy. The manager took time to speak to all the clients to ensure all was in order. His suggestions regarding food and drink were spot-on. Presentation and quality of... More

I liked it so much I ate here two consecutive nights. Mostly it was the good food, but it was nice not having anyone trying to get me into their restaurant. Both nights were crowded but they always found a spot for me. I only had appetizers and they were great. The grilled calamari was tender and enjoyable with the... More

This was just round the corner from our hotel and fitted the bill nicely. Good, wholesome food, nothing fancy, but probably something for everyone on the long menu. We chatted to our neighbours, a French couple at the next table, who were quite satisfied with their meal. A little bit of theatre when the waiter tried to set light to... More

We picked this for dinner based on the Tripadvisor reviews. It was solid but unremarkable and a little expensive considering the other nicer meals we've had around Sultanahmet. My wife had the fried sole and I had a saffron sea bass stew. The cold veg appetizers -- roast red pepper, eggplant salad, etc -- were quite good though.

We had a very good meal here, starting with calamari (grilled and fried) which was enormous and excellent. Highly recommended. We then had sea bass (very good), swordfish kebabs (excellent) and a couple of different fish stews. The food was very good and portions were huge, but loses a star from me due to lack of atmosphere. It was quite... More
