Eating in Turkey gets boring, especially when you have lived there 5 years. This is a refreshing haute cuisine twist to traditional every day Turkish specialties. Recommended to tourists who want to savor Turkish cuisine at its best, but also to locals & expats who want to experience change. Service team is especially nice and hospitable, and above all speak... More

After reading reviews of this place and it being confirmed by our hotel, we decided to take the short minute walk. The walk itself was actually the best part of the night. It's currently Ramadan and there were thousands of people out celebrating. We walked through the vendors at the Hippodrome which lots of cool street food and crafts for... More

I loved this restaurant, the food is fresh and the staff is really friendly and helpful. The menu offers a great range of items: grilled fish, lamb, veggies and lot of delicious appetizers from eggplant to stuffed grape leaves to feta to roasted red peppers and more. I encourage you to ask any questions about how the specific food is... More

We asked the concierge at the Four Seasons to recommend a traditional, yet casual Turkish dining experience and we were in no way disappointed. Minutes from the main square, but away from the chaos, nice patio, interesting road, friendly local cats, excellent service, great value and faultless food. I can't tell you how this rates to other Turkish food experiences... More

Recommended by our hotel for its meat, we weren't disappointed. Great meal, friendly staff, wine flowed. Small starter, big mains and 2 bottles of wine, it came to about £40 a head.

This is a great place on Divanyolu right in the heart of the old quarter and close to the Sulemaniye Mosque. Excellent and very friendly service. Try the Islim kebab (lamb chops wrapped in eggplant)!

If I was rating only the quality of the food then I would have marked this restaurant as average - it was good enough but not exceptional and i am sure that there are many other restaurants churning out similar quality fare in the city. However, the standard of service was very poor. The staff did not seem interested at... More

This is most tasteful restaurant in Istanbul, not just by my opinion. Traditional Turkish food with outstanding quality and a fare price. Friendly staff taking good care of you. The restaurant is located on walking distance from the 'must see's' in Istanbul in front of the Sura Design hotel.
