Traditional ottoman plates with a twist. Good service. We ate twice both times was a gastronomic experience.

I stayed with a friend at a hotel on this street and the staff recommended Albura to us. It was the best food we had for the entire trip, in my opinion! The restaurant staff is great too! Try the figs for dessert; we reminisced about them for the rest of our trip!

The restaurant is in the Old Town near major attractions and in a street full of other restaurants. It has a no hassle policy so there is no tout outside. The food is good and interesting better than the other restaurants in the area that we tried. There are very edible Turkish regional dishes as well as more universal offerings.... More

We came here primarily to use the free wifi, and started off with a beer, but then ordered a meal afterwards. The meals were filling and delicious, but not the best we'd had in Istanbul. The ruins are definitely a must see, and are really easy to access from the back of the outdoor terrace.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel & in fact they took us there. We were not disappointed & returned a second night. The food was excellent as was the service. There is a sign out front saying it is 'hassle free' & it really was. It is situated on a busy little street, full of restaurants, so there was... More

Lives up to its reputation. Waiters are very helpful, speak English and know their menu. Same ambiance as The Village in Manhattan except cleaner. Located in a beautiful are flocked by resaturants and cafes. The food was exceptional, fresh and beautifully presented. I would definitely go back.
