We had our last meal in Istanbul here just before leaving for the airport. Wonderful food, best we had in 3 days. Friendly service from Antonio, with complementary apple tea afterward. Wish we found them earlier! Will definitely visit again!

My wife and I stayed at the Eresin Crown hotel across the street. I suspected this to be an overpriced bar preying on hotel guests. nothing could be further from the truth. We ended up stopping because I wanted to smoke a shisha and have a beer, not a demanding request, but due to the vicinity of the mosque, not... More

After a long day of sightseeing and walking around the city stopping here was the perfect end to the day. We actually went two days in a row which we're not prone to do on vacation. We had drinks outside with desert and it was perfect. The host is very friendly and accommodating its great to see a place with... More

We were staying across the street and wanted a simple dinner. The front desk suggested we eat here. It was a nice dinner but the service was more than charming. We had a new best friend lots of entertainment for the evening. This is the perfect place for a low key evening in Istanbul.

We ate here almost every day we were in Istanbul. Its a nice quiet restaurant in Sultanamhet with great food. A good place to have a beer and relax after walking the city.

Nice restaurant in a nice location. The food was good, I just think we wait to much time for them to bring out the food. However the atmosphere is very friendly and nice decoration.

Ok…you all may have experienced that moment in which you're walking around in a daze trying to decide where you wish to eat with all the touristic restaurants trying to persuade you to try their restaurant.

Not taken by the menu (which is very good)? Just ask Murat and the chef and they will try thier best to provide it for you. My wife was invited into the kitchen to show them how to make a traditional prawn cocktail!!
