Good Tripadvisor ratings don't seem to mean much. Food shockingly bad. Flagship dish, Ottoman Beef Stew un-chewable. Crepes Chicken more tasteless crepe than chicken. Wine mediocre. Absolute disappointment and totally overpriced for quality served.

We stumbled into Pepe Cafe for New Year's Eve .... and were very glad that we did! Inside we found a warm, family run restaurant with great atmosphere and excellent food.

We enjoyed our experience so much, we went back a few nights later. The waiter remembered us and treated us to cay and strawberries after our meal. The meze plate was delicious both visits and the entrees good as well. We appreciated the friendly atmosphere too!

With a group of 6 we had a good dinner here, delicious mixed mezze plate (20 tl), nice (certainly above average) kebabs (24-26) and an excellent veggie vegetable pancake. Decent wine 70 tl. Friendly staff, a bit too eager though, we had to cool him down a bit as he was taking and replacing our plates at the second we... More
