Very good food and service! Comfortable and cozy. In the hectic atmosphere of Taksim, this is a great place to relax.

“Great pizza ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Dinner during a wander at The House was a welcome break. Good service and good food, although a little pricey. Would recommend.

“excellent choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

It is an excellent choice cafe with a wonderful menu. Food is fresh and well presented. The building is lovely and a great atmosphere. We ate there several days and tried several dishes and we were never disappointed. Well recommended!

“Wide selection on menu but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

A friend who was living in turkey recommend that we give this place a go. We did so on a Sunday night. It seems that the day of the week does not matter in Istanbul as it was packed as was the whole street. The menu is very wide and varied. My friend had a selection of tapas, quinoa dish, cheese balls and some fries. I had the lemon chicken risotto. Gorgeous tasting food. Atmosphere was great. Very stylish place inside and out. We sat outside and there was a great atmosphere. The only downside was that people were smoking even though there was a mo smoking sign above their heads. It is expensive for turkey but felt it was worth it for quality and variety of food. Alcohol is expensive though as in most parts of turkey.
