Very fresh and tasty food with a lovely service ! We have the mezze who give an overview of turkish spices and vegatbles and then delightful meatball and steak. What is a gret surprise for me is that the salad is particularly freqh and tasty, and different taste for both dishes.

Lovely food in a very nicely designed restaurant. Lovely small details in everything. Don't miss out the Mixed Mezze dish. Everything feels fresh and of good quality. Very reasonable prices for what you get.

We were looking for a dessert only, and asked them if it was ok...they said yes and we entered. They had only 1 dessert so finally we took 1 meze plate to share and 2 desserts (pear with syrup and chocolate) with coffee. We spent 68 tl...a bit.too much for a few vegetables and 2 pears...

After the best meze platter we had in Istandbul we were served two delicious meals (one vegetarian, the other a kind of turkish ravioli) by an exceptionally friendly staff. The wine came in a drinking glass but was also very good (I think there was no choice, they only have one sort of red wine). All in all for two... More

We were there on August 30th, on our last night of our vacation in Istanbul. The place from outside looks very nice, not touristic, but there is no menu to find out the food or the prices. Only a blackboard inside with some plates. The food was nice, the wine was really good but .... the price of 1/2 kg... More

The food here is exceptional - a really quirky place with so many exciting and delicious dishes that you could only want to demand recipes and return for seconds.

We had 5 days in Istanbul and this was the best meal we had by some margin - the meze platter was delicious, mains very tasty and the desserts sweet but balanced by the Turkish coffee. A carafe of red wine (local) was excellent. Our waitress was very friendly and informative about the spicing and content of the various dishes.... More

My husband and I discovered Acik Mutfak because we were staying around the corner and we noticed the food when we walked by. We were not disappointed! The menu is slightly different every day and once an option is sold out, it's gone. This was definitely the first sign of the freshness of the food. The waitress was very sweet... More
