Restaurant evaluation by Trip Advisor was used thoroughly to determine where to go for lunch and dinner. And Siva Cafe Restaurant was selected as our 3rd best meal (1st and 2nd place were in Goreme, Capadoccia). We had dinner at Siva... More

The food was really good and there were a lot of options to choose from. From Turkish foods to pasta and steaks, I was able... More

We were walking around looking for a place to eat dinner when Victor, the charismatic host and owner, convinced us to stop here. The restaurant was very cozy and beautiful and the food was delicious. Victor sat with us for part of our meal and made us feel at home right away. The staff was incredible and very entertaining (Josef... More

Stayed with friends at the nearby hostel...the people are welcoming, friendly, entertaining, and fun to talk to!! The food is good and the service is good!! Stop by to see Josef balance your drink on his head or be entertained by Victor's friendly banter/wit. Two thumbs up!!

We started out to go to the restaurant next door, but this place caught our attention and we changed out plans. I'm glad we did. Our waiter was a very entertaining. We could carry three beers stacked on top of his head, he went through a very exciting procedure to open our clay pot dinner, and he was just fun... More

Ate here twice. There are a lot of café/restaurants on this road with similar menus but the food can be very different. This place stood out as having very good food (the casserole, the moussaka, their hot tomato paste and hummus. Staff are very good. Well priced. I would go their again. Very good.

We arrived quite late to our hotel only to find they don't do food or have a bar, so we were very plesently surprised to find such a gem of a restaurant just around the corner, we ate there twice during our stay in Istanbul and wished we had gone every night. The food and service is excellent and would... More
