The people who work here make you feel welcome. Kebabs and pides (sort of sandwiches) fresh and just cooked. Good Turkish beer, outside/inside dining, street life passing by. A lovely lunch or dinner.

We are staying in the Sultanamet area of Istanbul and were warned by the hotel about the overpriced local restaurants. I checked TripAdvisor and found the Meat House. The host was friendly without being over zealous. The food he suggested gave us a taste of local cuisine and was value for money. We will be back tonight.

Delicious food, friendly staff and great prices. Couldn't recommend the place more! Lovely relaxed atmosphere amidst busy Sultanahmet Square.

Went to the Meat House on the recommendation of a local carpet seller and we were not disappointed! My son and I wanted to get out of the hustle and bustle and enjoy a sidewalk cafe. The wait staff were very friendly and recommended a lamb dish to give us an authentic taste of Istanbul, with portions big enough for... More

Just as the title suggests - this restaurant is a very short walk from the hustle and bustle of the Blue Mosque area....With very helpful and polite waiting staff, no loud music and you are mixed with locals having lunch. A good place to re-charge your batteries before getting back onto the sightseeing roundabout!

This was casual and we had a terrific meal. The waiter was one of the best we experienced in Istanbul. It's just outside of the tourist trap and a short walk from Four Seasons hotel ( where we did not stay) I mention this purely to set the location.

Good local restaurant. Good beer and food. In a quieter area which is nice. Very nice waiter and a good intro to Istanbul food.

This place was just incredible. My family and I went there multiple times. They had incredible food, and the best things that we ordered was the appetizer sampler and the meat platter (plus amazing fresh bread). This place had their food on point, and the service was awesome. They aren't super aggressive like the other people at the restaurants, but... More

Has a reasonable range of local Turkish dishes. Good-sized meals, clean, friendly. Metin treated us like neighbours and made us very welcome and comfortable. The service was excellent and, finally, the dishes we tried were very tasty and satisfying. The dishes were simple but of excellent quality. We rarely eat at the same restaurants, but we readily did at Meat... More

A small restaurant, tucked away into a side street in SultanAhmet area. The food was delicious, the Turkish naan bread hot from the oven. the service was prompt and delivered with a smile! Great value for money.
