Had lunch with family in this place, was taken there as part of a day tour of Istanbul by our tour guide; the food was standard Turkish fare and quite good, the service too was ok with the waiters taking care. An ok place with nothing special

We loved this cafe. From the very first night we discovered this place we came back for the next four nights until we had to leave the next day. There is a band there with the traditional Dervish dancer and the music was amazing. Very relaxing also. The sheesha was spot on. For all you sheesha lovers.... This is the... More

We found this place accidentally while we were walking around Hagia Sophia, the Cistern and The Blue Mosquee. Its located beside famous "Casa Pedro" and the offer admissible dishes for a reasonable price (about 18€ per pax).

We enjoyed a great dinner in this restaurant, the food was very good and the service very attentive. We started with a meze plate which we shared, the food was great and the variety very interesting, this was followed by an excellent chicken dish and local bread. The wine was very good and all was a reasonable price. Recommended restaurant

This restaurant looks more like a fan club for football. If you have a look at the menue card you will find average dishes which you also can find in each other restaurant. So what is special? The meze plate looks poor and same is the taste. The service charge is not included so you have to add an extra... More

Nice ambience and an equally nice location. This is the 2nd time i had dinner with my colleagues (with really good taste buds) and we had Turkish Pizza, Kebaps, couple of salads etc, with hot bread. i must say that their taste was consistently marvellous...a must visit if you are @ Sultanahmet !
