Had drinks here one night and the service was so good we went back for dinner the second night. They offered us their special dish which we agreed and it comes with a show. It is a heated ceramic pot on fire which they break the top and pour into dish. It was meat and vegetables in s beautiful... read more

We ate at this family-run restaurant in Sultanahmet one evening when we had recently arrived in Istanbul, and I hope to make it to this place again one night before we leave. It is an easy choice for the traveller, with menus showing the choices in 5 or 6 languages, and the waiters having good English. I wouldn't take this... More

Whilst the food was excellent - particularly the mixed meat kebab that comes out in an earthenware pot (plus fanfare!), and fresh fish - my favourite part of the experience was the banter with the very charming staff; all of whom could probably sell a second-hand Rolls Royce to Lord Sugar.. I recommend it and would happily eat there again.

Like other travelers, we finally relented to being hassled every time we passed this restaurant - and thank goodness we did. The meal was absolutely delicious! I would highly recommend Alexander kebab which was the most flavoursome meal I have eaten in the five days we've been in Istanbul.

A funky corner restaurant but the food was amazing. My wife and I ducked into this place without reading the name after we were told by the man in front that his mother does the cooking. Peeking back into the kitchen his mother looks like a turkish man - but who am I to judge? We had a great Meze... More

This restaurant was close to our hotel and every time we walked by it, we were pestered to have a meal in it, as is the norm with most restaurants in the tourist area of Istanbul. We relented one night, as we felt the staff were quite friendly and the menu was more or less the same as in all... More

Me and my girlfriend were looking for a more famous fish restaurant in the area Balicki Sabahttin, and the Tripadvisor app was pointing to this restaurant without name (Old House was the only writing). While trying to find out where we were, a guy from the restaurant came out asking if we were looking for Balicki Sabahttin and showed us... More

We ate at Lady Diana on our first night when we arrived. We were not disappointed. The food was good and the staff very helpful and friendly. The restaurant was a little quiet but probably due to the time of year. I would recommend.

My family and I followed the Googlemaps directions and ended up here though we were trying to get to the famous fish restaurant Balikci Sabahattin, where we had made a reservation. There wasn't another restaurant on the block and the location of Lady Diana was nearly where Sabahattin was supposed to be, so we hesitated for a moment on the... More
