Lovely lunch

Another gamble in Istanbul that paid off! When choosing a stop off for lunch it can be hit or miss but this was a decent choice. Nice table to people watch and friendly staff. The huge bread they give you (balloon bread) is fantastic and free! (Unlike several other countries we weren't charged a... read more

Our first meal in Istanbul was one of the better ones. Fresh Turkish bread with a good sprinkling of seeds appeared to be bought from the restaurant next door. It arrived hot and fresh and was a great accompaniment. We chose a number of fish and seafood dishes. The calamari was fresh and succulent not small and chewy you often... More

The food, the service and the location, everything is just so perfect. The food is not really expensive and if you are a sea food lover than this place is a must try.

European menu but the taste of my dish was great. Although my husband did not like his food. The environment is good with murals on the roof giving it a very artistic look.

Ottoman cuisine restaurant more dedicated to seafood and fish specialities. 4 of us have chosen the seafood and fish tagine, it was excellent !!! but stick to traditional cuisine, and you want be disappointed, avoid international meals. Nice service, and good price/quality rating.

The menu has a good selection of traditional ottoman dishes... More
