The perfect Istanbul restaurant.

We found this wonderful restaurant on our first night. Great location, friendly helpful and considerate staff, who made us feel as if we were really important guests. The food was delicious. Good value. We enjoyed it so much we came back on our last night and they remembered us. Highly recommended.

Visited this restaurant last night with a group of friends, the food was pretty rubbish to be honest. The hummus starter was tasteless and was no better than a supermarket value brand. The chips and rice were cold though the meat on the plate was warm, and none of it looked good quality. Also the food that was brought out... More

Make sure to pay a visit to palmiye restaurant, close to the haghia Sophia and blue mosque. Besides the great atmosphere and friendly staff, they serve amazing food from the ottoman kitchen and also a large variety of European food. They make quite a show out of serving testi kebab. I would recommend it!
