There were only two problems: 1) the quality of the food was poor, as far as authentic food goes, there is much better... More

It's a bit of tourist trap, it seems. The food didn't seem fresh at all and it was pretty expensive. The stuffed vine leaves were good, but the hummus, pide and shish were pretty week. Definitely wouldn't recommend this place.

The first 3 days we went with her list, and went to places in Sultanahmet, Galata Tower & Taksim Square.All these places... More

In another review I mentioned that If one has a look at the reviews on TA regarding high rated restaurants in Istanbul, then one can notice that most of them have a quite big part of the reviews saying that the visitor had a terrible experience at those reviewed places. That suggest that the food or the service at those... More

We had a delicious lunch. Great lahmatzun, great kebap, great service and all the above in a cozy atmosphere. Cannot ask more from a restaurant. Be careful though since on this area of Istanbul prices are a bit higher than average touristic areas.

My husband and I shared a plate of meze, which was perfectly ok for the staff. The meze was excellent as was the grilled dishes we had for main course. The interior was very nice and contemporary and the service was very good. Loved this place and will return if ever in Istanbul again.
