Kebaps so delicious!

Faros is in the Taksim pedestrian street of Sehit Muhtar Caddesi. I can never get enough of their kebaps. On your next visit to Istanbul, make a date with this cafe. You will not go wrong.

We stayed in InterContinental and decided to walk around for a breakfast in the Monday morning. This one is just next to the hotel around the corner. It is open when we were there at 8:30. We did not do the buffet. It is basic. We did panini, toast, sausages, Turkish coffee and fresh orange juice. It is fair and... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
