Very close to Agia Sofia and Blue Mosque. The food was served quickly and you have the opportunity to see and choose what you want to eat.

To say this restaurant was disappointing would be a heck of an understatement. The pictures of celebrities on the walls would make you think that this place was a real draw, but the reality is that the food choice is very limited, when it arrives it is sparse and dry, and the staff would have to try really hard to...

We tried the restaurant because of it's history. The food was very good, especially the bulgur rice and all the vegetarian dishes. The waiter added spontaneously specialities I wanted to try on my plate, very kind and without charging Good service and staff not too pushy. Price average but far less then other places. I would go back immediately.

Nothing to write home about, Just your average pizza, pasta joint with a smattering of turkish thrown in. Living off the fact that it was a hippy joint in the 70s.

Food is yum, staff welcoming, and if you sit upstairs next to the window, you look out and see beautiful, world heritage Istanbul while you eat. The place was apparently part of the old hippy trail back in the day.

It was the history of the place that tempted us to get in. The food was average and overpriced for what was offered. It was boiling hot inside. The staff was rude and they overcharged us. When we asked them to explain how we reached that sum, the waiter told us it was the service charge (15% of the bill).... More

It was late afternoon and our tour guide took us there for lunch, it was hard to order, noisy and jut Ok food. We had one entrée and some baklava with three beverages and it was $47 usd. This was pretty expensive for the type place it is.
