The staff was friendly and attentive and the food was great. The fish stew was amazing. It was an added bonus that the restaurant provided... More

The good thing about this restaurant is they pick you up from your hotel and drop you back when you are ready. The food was lovely, a bit pricey. We order a Sea bass to share between 3 of us and it came whole on a plate with enough sides to fill us up! Plenty of food for us. The... More

We came there with high expectations already, but they managed to surprise us with their excellent service and delicious food.

Everything about this restaurant is first class! We made a booking through the hotel and the restaurant sent their van to pick us up in Sultanahmet for an early lunch. We were treated like VIP's throughout and ended up eating what was suggested by the waiter and Mustafa. What an absolute delight! The sizzling prawn starter and calamari was delicious... More

Located in the crowded quarter of Kumkapi, the restaurant is very simple with a few tables outside on a street that is full of shops, restaurants and therefore also crowded. Sitting outside (as we did) you can feel the real atmosphere of Istanbul, full of confusion, voices, people walking all around, so that it seems to eat in the middle... More

We were welcomed very warm by the waiters. In general very good service. We only ate appetizers, which were very good. Bread and water was free and was refilled without order. Nice atmosphere: Traditional Turkish music. Location good but not in the crowded area. We got a desert (varied fruits, very delicious!) for free. We had a nice night at... More

My wife and I went here for dinner tonight and had a fantastic time. The staff were amazing and very attentive, and the food was fresh, presented to us before cooking and tasted sublime. Definitely worth a visit! Thanks to Mustafa and his team :)
