Good, relatively simple, food, well cooked and presented at a reasonable price. What more could you want. Siva is in a small street with lots of restaurants. You can expect to get hassled a little as you walk along the street as they all want your custom. We used two and they were both served good Turkish food. Siva is... More

This is one of the places that is along the food strip in Sultanhamet near the Haggia Sophia and Blue Mosque that hustles tourists in the door. The food is good and reasonably priced if you are looking for a sit down. There is cheaper food a few blocks away, but the atmosphere is good and light. We had a... More

I have chosen this place considering the ranking of restaurants in Tripadvisor. Well, it was OK, with good food and kind service. Even if at the first attempt the waiter did not manage to serve the soups we ordered. But at the end the place has met our expectations. The only thing that was unnecessary: the tout at the entrance.... More

My cousin and I recently had dinner at the Siva Cafe. Not only was the food great but the staff was very charming and a lot of fun as well. We enjoyed it so much that we came back another night too. Will visit again next time we're in Istanbul!
