Good service, great food; loved the homemade lemonade - very refreshing made with fresh mint. The Beef medallions were large - excellent value. The staff didn't rush you through the menu, leaving time to "breathe" between courses.

I stayed in Istanbul for 4 nights with a friend, and we visited this restaurant twice. While looking for some place to eat, the main reason we chose this one over all the others on the same street was the lovely smile of the receptionist Oyku who is an absolute star!

This restaurant is well deserving of its great rating as the location, service and food are all excellent. The lamb chops are particularly good and the mountain spicy salad is unique (like tomato brochetta without the bread). Unfortunately the beef was very salty so beware of that. The portions were plentiful. A 10% service charge is added automatically which is... More

Eat here. Just do it. It was the best of many fantastic meals we had in Istanbul, and the first place we recommend to friends.

Chicken shish kebab, mountain salad, turkish pizza were excellent. The minced lamb and beef kebab was dry. This restaurant is not as touristy as the others on the same street.

Good food and drinks. The btead is amazing and the meat is really nice. I recommend it. It is perfect for a beer after a day walking around Istambul.
