Right around the corner from the Pera Palace Hotel there is a narrow street full of eating places. Rumeli is the best we found. Traditional mese with good raki or beer and the flavors are just wonderful. Sitting a table next to an open window watching the world go by, enjoying first rate Turkish cuisine is the way to go. We enjoyed our meal so much that when we returned to Istanbul, we wen a long way out of our way to treurn there for lunch. We found the prawns are to die for.
