After 10 days in Turkey I was ready for food from a different non-turkish cuisine. I fell for the reviews in trip advisor and ate at Picante. The service was cordial and efficient. The place is small and there are only three tables, each for two people, for outdoor seating. The guacamole was bland. The vegetable dish was just like... More

Tried this restaurant last night, as a treat on our backpacking trip. They served yum food, however we felt it was a bit expensive for Istanbul and we decided against ordering Sangria due to the cost (105TL for 1Litre). Definitely check it out if you want a change from Kebabs and are happy to pay a bit extra for a... More

Small restaurant, with limited seating. We went for a late dinner, therefore did not have to wait for a table. Margaritas - excellent! Food - absolutely delicious! Staff is very friendly and hospitable

Discovered by accident but what a wonderful little restaurant. From the margaritas to start with through to a wonderful tequila sunrise steak this was a very enjoyable dinner. Staff we're very friendly and hospitable. Embru and Hakan (2of them the chef and waiter) we're great. I would strongly recommend this place for great food and relaxed atmosphere.

Most of what I would say has been said in all the other reviews. I am reviewing from last November (2013), when we stayed at the Collage Pera Boutique Hotel just across the street and down the hill a bit. My wife and I are a diplomatic family...We've lived in many countries and enjoy the local food, wine, and atmosphere.... More

This is really a gem of a tiny restaurant near Sishane station in Taksim. I'm an expat who lived in California for ten years before moving to Istanbul, and had been dying to try Picante for ages. Mexican food, while EVERYWHERE in Cali, is a very rare treat in Turkey. To be honest, no, it is not the best Mexican... More
