“The One and Only TAG Cafe & Bistro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

The Tag Cafe & Bistro is one of Istanbul's best kept secrets! Upon your arrival you will be greeted by the most polite staff I have encountered in Istanbul. The mood and vibe is a dynamic mix of both comfort and style. Not to mention, a very delicious, yet affordable menu with a long list of tempting cocktails. Be sure to also stick around as evening falls, when the venue changes into a very chilled out lounge accompanied by one of many talented local DJs.

I was very lucky to find this place, where any traveler can come, relax and mix with some of the most pleasant and educated locals around! It is an absolute must see attraction!

“Loved this place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

This is a small cozy resto bar just off the busy main street. We felt so comfortable there that we went a couple of times during our week in Istanbul. The 2 fellows who run the place are friendly and helpful. We had the wine of the month (local) which was excellent and reasonably priced . The food is a mixture of local and European cuisines, a small menu but what we had was delicious. Meatballs and chicken dishes were great; in particular, I loved the herb salad. A nice little get away from the crowds on Istiklal.
