For me this restaurant try to be a luxury restaurant but doesn't really achieve it. The food is good and well prepared, the portions i found them to be a bit small. But what nag me is the try to pass image of sophistication and modern cuisine but it just ends up being pretentious. And it's not that I found... More

The ottoman food in Pasazade was great. It has many interesting and unusual flavors. We tried lamb on a bed of hummus, meatballs, the fish and the beef, as well as meze (which are different from the turkish ones). Everything was amazing and tasty (some dishes a little spicy) and our 4 teenagers tried and loved everything. Desserts were excellent... More

I come to Pasazade every time I'm in Istanbul, and it was just as good this time. It's a relaxing place: no touts on the street, no pressure to order more, just excellent, serene service. They start you with fresh baked rolls and a delicious farmer's cheese. Then starters: the spinach, oh my God, the spinach! What an amazing and... More

This restaurant is a pearl in the touristic neighbourhood of Sultanahmet. The food is amazing, the service is polite and the prices reasonable. I tried the red lentils soup (8TL) and the mezzes plate (only 20TL for 6 mezzés!). Both dishes were perfectly flavoured and delicious. It is a pity I did not have the opportunity to come back to...

I'm not blown away. It's good but not great. I got the lamb meatballs on a bed of aubergine (eggplant) and assorted veggies that had a nice char on them. I was expecting greatness because of the reviews given on this site. Meh. Service was amazing, ambiance lovely. Soooo many other places to choose from...

We ate here based on the recommendation of other Trip Advisor reviewers, and we weren't disappointed. One of us had the red lentil soup and sea bass, the other had the chicken stuffed with pistachios and spinach. All were great, several levels better than the cafeteria-plus food we'd been eating. The service was sensational. We were the only ones in... More

Really great experience on this restaurant! Starting with not annoying waitres while you look at the menu (rare in Istambul...). Fantastic service. The meal was excelent and they offered us some cheese while waiting the main courses. Simply one of the best restaurants in Istambul.
