This is a very typical touristy place like most in Sultanahmet... I had orders lentil soup and meatballs with rice and salad.. The lentil solid is decent... The meatballs were over fried with excess salt and they forgot my salad but remembered that I asked them not to give me fries... Tourists land here to eat pasta... If that's what... More

We ate here lunch time on New Years Eve. The weather was awful so we were looking for somewhere inside. We had to wait about 10 minutes for a table but it was worth the wait. There was a wide variety of food and the staff were helpful in giving advice about particular meals. Service was prompt, although not hurried,... More

We were very happy with the food, nice pasta, pesto and wine by glass. But! We kept waiting like 20 or more minutes for dessert, and when we asked they told us that the kitchen was closed. So, good place but be sure to order on time!

At the time of our visit, this restaurant and it's neighboring shops and restaurants had no power. I lowered my expectations when on my way to the toilet, I witnessed the staff cooking in a dark candle-lit room downstairs! Power shortage during that time wasnt anything they expected and we were their first customers. Surprisingly the food was great! We... More
