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.

Walking up and down the small side streets close to the Blue Mosque, we came across the Kayikci restaurant. One of the few places in Istanbul where we were able to read the menu first -quietly- before someone approached us. That's mainly why we decided to give it a try. The menu has a good selection of traditional ottoman dishes... More

Nice little room in a good location. I'd been in North Cyprus for two weeks prior to coming to Istanbul so being a bit lamb and chicken'd out I thought I'd have a steak. They have a large selection of steak which I assume they import from the U.S. The waiter didn't ask how I wanted it so I asked... More

This is the worst tourist trap restaurant we have ever eaten it. From the time you walk by, you are pressured to sit down at a table, the "caller" saying to me, "Look in my eyes, my restaurant has 4.5 stars on Trip Advisor." Stupid me, I fell for it and trusted him. We ordered hummus which we got right... More

We ended up at this restaurant twice during our visit to Istanbul. The food was the best we'd tasted in Turkey and the service was wonderful. They made my husband and 3 kids and me all feel like family. The food was our top reason for the second visit though. We tried various things over the two visits, but our... More
