Overall good food with prices that are not excessive. We were glad we chose lamb dish based on a 17th century palace recipe which was both interesting and very good

I had lunch here, and staff were inviting and friendly (not pushy like a lot of other places you will find in Istanbul). It has a trendy but relaxed ambiance with traditional Turkish food served with a modern take. I would return here to eat again as the food tasted great and the portion sizes were just right and not... More

We were recommended Amedros by our hotel and it lived up to its billing. A lovely table on the street in the middle of the action, a fantastic cold beer (hard to find during Ramadan), delectable food and great friendly smiling service. What more can you ask for?

I selected Amedros based on its review in the Rough Guide to Istanbul, and its proximity to my hotel (5 minutes walk). My dinner/evening there was so enjoyable, I decided to return again the following night! Take a look at their website, www.amedroscafe.com , it has lots of good pictures and complete menus (except for desserts?, which were also exceptional).... More

I would just like to thank all the staff at Amedros for their service and fine food during my stay in Istanbul last week. I must give a special mention to the charming Nino who was so attentive and friendly. I must say your restaurant serves the finest spaghetti bolognese I have ever tasted! I hope to return soon. Best... More

One of the problems of travel in many places and especially in tourist areas is that I often feel that when people look at me they see a dollar sign with arms and legs. Restaurants in particular beckon you in aggressively only to produce very average fair. We were recommended Cafe Amedros by our hotel people and checked it on... More

This restaurant is in a very touristic area, and yet is remarkably different from all the restaurants around, for several reasons: 1. The food is actually very good! After being fairly disappointed by many restaurants, either for the lack of taste, originality or being really overpriced for the food and/or service quality, Amederos was a very pleasant surprise. 2. Kid... More

Amedros is the absolutely best place for good reliable food, friendly waiters a more pleasant evening would be hard to find. On our first time in Istanbul we went to a couple of other restaurants and then went to Amedros. It was so good there we never went anywhere else to eat for the rest of the holiday. Next time...

The friendliness, politeness and helpfulness of the staff and the ambience in a pleasant side street all make this an excellent place to eat in the old town. It can be hard to find somewhere good in the area so once we found this restaurant we ate there every night. We were welcomed like old friends each time and nothing... More
