Located in Pera area meze deserves a visit to taste the delicious food that they served. Variety of mese plates, meat or fish plates as well. Wine is a little expensive but i think thats a turkish policy in general. Make a reservation before you visit it or ask your hotel to do so. Great job guys, keep it like... More

Their mezes were so good! Actually we were more impressed by these flavorful appetizers than the mains themselves. Hot starter: shrimp stew - terrific Cold starter: fish in olive oil - terrific Reservation a must!

Meze serves clever twists on traditional Turkish meze that are simply wonderful. The array is wide and varied, full of interesting variations, tastes and textures. The main courses are refined and generous and well... the desserts were magnificent. The atmosphere is all the better for being intimate, with staff that are helpful and speak excellent English. Be sure to make... More

This is the second time I dine at Mezze and the delight is the same if not better. This time we managed to get a normal table (avoid the high tables which are a torture) after trying for three days. This place is always packed and reservation is needed. To start with, a selection of special mezzes (beware some with... More

Ate dinner here with the girlfriend and another couple in early November 2014. Really enjoyed the food - absolutely everything we ordered was really tasty and undoubtedly the best food we had in Istanbul. Particularly enjoyed the cold and hot starters and the monkfish stew / seabass main - the four of us shared well. The wine was fine too... More

It is a very small restauranrt (so it is better to book a table before you go). Very nice turkish plates and meze. Very friendly staff. It is near to Istiklal (one road below).

A rare gem in Istanbul, unassuming from the outside but inside the chef creates original and modern twists on classic delicious. The monkfish cerviche and the hummus starter were two of the best dishes I ate in Istanbul. Highly reccomend!

Absolutely phenomenal. As a foodie who has eaten his fair share of michelin stars and streetfood this place came highly recommended and I reserved a table 4 months in advance for 2 friends. We ordered a bunch of meze, and 3 main courses, desert, wine, cocktails, etc and everything was unspeakably perfect, except perhaps the goatcheese stuffed peppers, but thats... More

Best Food I Ever Had In Istanbul! I was impressed by the blend of ingridences and rich flavours. Very good service, and the Restaurant is simple but beautiful decorated. Nice location next to Pera Hotel in the heart of Istanbul.
