The name Peripetie itself speaks volumes of goodness: 'a sudden and unexpected change of fortune or reverse of circumstances' and in each of my visits there, it's definitely been a turn of tasty fortune.

I concur with other reviews. We accidentally discovered this restaurant on a side street off of Istaklal pedestrian way. It was the friendliest place we ate in during our 4-day stay in Istanbul. Food was just as pictured in their menu and tasty and the beer was ice cold. The vibe from the staff was very warm and friendly. We... More

PeriPetie is one of the many bars right off of the popular Istiklal street. After spending seven nights in the area, going for drinks at about five different, and noting the prices of countless others, I highly recommend PeriPetie. At 7 lira a half liter the beers were the cheapest I found anywhere I went. Also the beers were poured... More

Just far enough off the beaten path of Istiklal to seem tucked-away, PeriPetie Bistro is a delightful surprise within a block of all the action. An extensive (and quite beautiful) menu offers lots of options including great vegetarian fare. We came back twice for the warm hospitality, excellent service, great food, local wine, and (even) the friendly resident Kedi (cat).

Walk down from Taksim Square, following the tram lines and turn right just before McDonald's; then proceed for about 400 yards, and you reach this restaurant. Really good food, fantastic friendly staff, sensible prices and attentive (but not pestering) cats. A very happy experience.

Very cozy place. Soulful host (administrator). Meals were prepared very quickly. Bistro was situated in opposite our hotel - across the road. you can just go down and have a few drinks beer. Huge selection of cocktails. varied menu. Fish, meat - everything was fresh, the portions were large. Price - is very democratic. Plus there is the beautiful interior... More
