Sir Evi is not cheap by Turkish standards but the price reflects the quality of the food and service. The heated outdoor dining area and live music are lovely. Add in the Istanbul hustle and bustle with a smattering of free range cats and this is a dining experience not to be missed. If you want something quieter then the... More

In the midst of old town you find one of those rare experiences you wouldn't be without. This is one of those places you will never forget. Great food, excellent service and beautiful people working here. Next time ask for a chance to tango or even better, have them dance for you! Thank you for a perfect ending to my... More

I knew this place well from my first trip to Istanbul with friends in 2013. This time I was traveling with my mother, and we both had a great time. The music, service, food and wine were all just as good as or better than I remembered. I'm a stricter vegetarian now than I was then, and they happily accommodated... More

I brought a group of 14 people from Norway to Istanbul medio April 2015, and we spend 3 great evenings at Sir Evi. Two nights for drink and smoke, one night for dinner. What a lovely staff!! And I love that Sir Evi is placed in a narrow street, close to historical attractions. We had dancing, both inside and outside,... More

Yes, maybe its price to be in Istanbul, but somethimes you have to pay a bit for the location. The food is great, the staff is very nice and welcoming. I enjoyed this place a lot during my visit, i had meals other places, like in Kumkapi, but it was no way near the quality we got here.

Went here two evenings in a row with a group of colleagues traveling. Super friendly staff, delicious food and great location in a small alley near Sultanahmet.
