We ate at this restaurant on the back of it's high trip advisor rating, but found it to be nothing more than your average tourist fare. The 'cold meze' was a complete rip off - consisting of 3 stuffed vine leaves, a tiny dollop of humous, some stale bread, a few pieces of chopped tomato and loads of lettuce to... More

Nice restaurant in a quaint location. Friendly staff that are very helpful. Food was very good and value for money nothing spectacular but just what you need sometimes. It's hard to find top restaurants in this part of town they are very much the same, but I could recommend a visit to this one.

The food is one of the best in Istanbul and the service is great. And you can ask about a discount and/or free starters. I nearly came every day to this restaurant because it is one of the best.

We eat twice in this restaurant. The atmosphere is pleasant. The second time we were in a hurry, but they were so nice and served the meal so quickly, that we have time to enjoy the last coffee. The quality of the food was excellent, the portions were big and the service quite appropriate, The testi kebab was indeed delicious,... More

I have eaten at Sir Evi 5 times in my last two trips to Istanbul. I discovered it one day on my way back to my Sultan Ahmet hotel from the Grand Bazaar. The food and service are excellent and it is so pleasant to sit outside. I have eaten there in the evening as well, and they have live... More

Accidently we stepped into the Restaurant Sir Evi and from that time on six persons (the amount of our group) wanted to eat only in this restaurant. Why? - super service - perfect food - perfect live music (singer with guitar - wounderfully) - very friendly manager - super atmosphere. We simply feld very comfortable! I am travelling a lot...

Great meals / excellent service. Mixed grill - also approved by my friend Bonjo - excellent sea-bream, also approved by Bonjo, the cat. I would say, he rates the whole experience 5 stars. He liked it so much, he lives there.

Great variety of food for a decent price. The alcoholic beverages were a bit pricey, but worth coming here for the food. They have a meat dish that is served in an urn that is on fire and they break it right in front of you before serving. Great presentation and tastes delicous. They had some live music one night...
