Outstanding Friendliness

We were recommended this restaurant by the management of our hotel just five minutes walk away. We had asked to be introduced to a more authentic choice of the local people. Off the busier tourist trail, Fuego is Kurdish owned and run and, clearly, attracts like minded friends. The choice of food... read more

It is a cosy and warm place, the personal is very friendly and kind. It is around the Sultanahmet square and is open till midnight. The food is othantic and delicious and the prices are reaonable. There is low music behind allowing the guests to talk.

Ate here on 1 of our nights here in Istanbul after reading the rave reviews here on TripAdvisor. The food was OK but nothing out of the ordinary. The service was OK but nothing special. The bill had an added service charge which bumped the price up & the bill came to 195 Turkish Lira (about £50) for a simple... More

We first went to Fuego a couple of years ago for a drink and ended up going back a couple of times to eat. Since then we have been there a number of times over another couple of visits to Istanbul. The menu offers a broad range of very well prepared and very Turkish food, but this is coupled with... More

Blown away by the quality of this little restaurant just a few miniutes walk from the main drag. We were so impressed we ended up eating here 3 times in an 8 night stay.
