Ate here twice, in fact, on our little break in Istanbul. First night we arrived late, straight from the airport and headed here on a tip from our hotel receptionist to have a meze and a glass of wine. Rather taken with the place, we returned on our last night for a full meal. Cheese plate to start (haloumi, feta,... More

My youngest son and I had Testi kebab which is the meat of your choice cooked in a pot with veggies and the top sealed by tin foil. It comes to your table in flames. The sever turns it upside down, taps the bottom of the pot which breaks, they then pour the contents onto a plate for you to... More

We were looking for a decent place to have dinner when being in Istanbul Old Town and took a look to what Tripadvisor was reccomending in the proximity. The area is packed with, mostly, tourist traps...the options are not really missing, but the quality often does. We decided to go to Anatolia, it's in a street that start just in... More

The place is clean, with decent music, and is located in a very touristic area. I have been there due to the good recommendations here, but I was disappointed. The food, I had Lamb Shish Kebab, was maybe average, not more. Rice, potatoes and vegetables were almost cold, the meat partly chewy. I expected more. There are definitely better, and... More

Echoing what others have said, this was one of the few places that we came back to. The staff was friendly, the food was delicious (although a bit pricey, to be expected), and the atmosphere was extremely inviting. I'll never forget the live musician that was playing Sweet Home Alabama!

During our 5 day stay in the city, this was the only restaurant we returned to. The staff was really friendly and helpful, the food was excelent and the bill was very resonable. They also advised us which turkish bath to go to, and when is the best time to take a ferry.

Dining solo is never much fun but the waiters here were very friendly and made me feel very welcome. The food was very good and there was a variety to choose from. It's tucked away from all the hustle and bustle and they are not the pushy kind but welcome you from the street without force!

We (2 couples) had a late lunch at this restaurant and found the food good and reasonably priced. We were not rushed and enjoyed the meal. We wanted a specific local wine that they did not have and so the waiter went out and bought two bottles from another shop which were then served to us........ good service!!

We dined at this restaurant after seeing the good reviews on Trip Advisor and were so glad we did. The food was wonderful and very reasonably priced. It is not far from the main street, and relatively easy to find for Istanbul, but was surprisingly relaxed and peaceful inside. There was a good selection of dishes on the menu and... More
