This place was recommended to me by the hotel. I rarely go a hotel recommendation, let alone one that has a brochure! However, it had a high rating here on trip advisor. My meal cost 80 liras for me only (included 2 beers and also includes 10% service charge). My issue is not the cost, my issue is that the... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we were keen to try out some delicious seafood. The staff were very nice, polite and spoke excellent English. They were very helpful and explained through the menu. I did feel as if we were being pushed a little too hard to opt for the pricer option (coming to well over 300TL)... More

Went to Hos seda on our last Saturday night in Istanbul back in Decemer with a group of guests from Ayasofya hotel. Lucky to have hottie owner Gaye take us and help us enjoy a great night of fabulous food, boisterous activity, music and laughing. The locals really let their hair down and celebrate so hard, easy to get wrapped... More

Our hotel suggested this place and said they would offer free shuttle- so far it sounded like a good deal. Nice place but empty there was 1more group and us. The prices of items was too high and food didn't taste that good either. I would not recommend it at all.

We went to Hos Ceda at the recommendation of our hotel and were a bit sceptical at first. But it ended up being a great night. We chose mezes which were delicious followed by delicious calamari and then fish. The salad was fresh and wine was at a reasonable price. The musicians came to our table which was great fun....

I am going to say the food was OK and error on the side of not knowing what to order. The fish we ordered were very bony. We were seated on an extension to the restaurant in the street, not the restaurant itself. The service was so-so. There was lots going on in the square that evening so it was... More
