“dinner at friends` place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

The first night we just had wine and the second evening fish for dinner. The food and also the service is excellent. It is like having dinner at friends place. You do not have the feeling to be pushed into the restaurant when you arrive there. A tasteful furnishings and great atmosphere to feel relaxed. The places outside (in front) are heated and even at cooler temperature still warm enough to enjoy the dinner outside. After a day of sightseeing and shopping the perfect place to relax and to enjoy the meal.

“One of the better places to eat / relax ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

This place was very tasty and friendly staff. Although speed is not one of their specialties ( kinda slow ) the food was very good compared to other places on the block. Tried several other restaurants and always ended up back at this one. Salads and Clay pot dishes are very good. Give it a try if your in the area. Good eats.

“Nice food and good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Four of us had dinner at Babylonia recently. Although for all of our five-day stay in Istanbul the weather had been sunny and warm, this particular evening it was windy and a bit cool; so the restaurant advised us to not sit on the rooftop terrace. Instead, we sat outside and watched the passing parade--quite an interesting mix of tourists and residents, and all nationalities.

We had some delicious food--appetizers, good fish, nice desert. Most of all, as in all of Istanbul, the staff was welcoming and efficient. We had a very nice evening here.
