Great dishes

I loved this restaurant in first sight. Foods are delicious and music is great. If the prices were cheaper, I'd come here regularly

Small and cozy place, nice music and good food. If you like spicy it's fantastic but if you don't like so spicy be sure that the waiter get the info about it. ;) Good taste and presentation of the food but I was amazed none of them were Mexicans, at least not the ones we talk with, but seems they...

Four of us had a very enjoyable meal at Picante. Fresh and very tasty food with the best tortilla chips. Quench your thirst with a margarita to top it all off. Very friendly service and an uber cool atmosphere.

Went here with friends and we weren't disappointed. The enchiladas (chicken and beef) were great, my husband enjoyed the fajitas and had two strawberry margaritas. Yum! Good ambiance and funky music playing in the background. A great choice if you are craving Mexican or want a change from Turkish fare!

We went there in search of nice, Mexican food and were not disappointed - nice fajitas, quesadillas, Margaritas. The place is small, but we sat outside on their little balcony, warmed by overhead heaters. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
