we had chocolate cake with ice cream and chocolate souffle with ice cream. Chocolate cake was beyond exceptional,however soufflé wasn't for us. Ice cream was really nice too. We plan to go again tomorrow just for the cake & dinner. Service was really good too....Highly recommended for quality food.More

We stumbled across this bakery while exploring Istambul and decided to try some of their specialities. They have an extensive menu with descriptions and photos so you could ask for details. We had fried pastry filled with goat cheese, accompanied by goat milk ice cream:...simple the best! We also had the cheese pie, a delicate pastry that comes with tomato and cucumber as a side. What amazed us was the consistency of the ice cream that can be eaten with a fork. The shop is spotlessly clean and brightly illuminated. At the end of our meal, the manager came to us to ask if everything was OK and we had a little chat and he mentioned that they have many locations within the city and in other parts of Turkey. The service was extremely attentive and the prices are very reasonable.More

Mado is my go for choice everytime I'm in istanbul. It's the best cafe and restaurant you can find especially in istiklal street. when visiting, make sure you taste turkish baklava and kunefe with ice cream, and turkish şay for sure! Salty dishes are also...amazing for turkish breakfast, lunch or dinner. Make sure you go to this cafe resto when in istanbul.More

Istanbul is a cluster of shops, stores, cafes, restaurants, hotels and apartment buildings. There are the regular local cafe/coffee shop places you can enjoy a good cup of Turkish tea or coffee and some the local snacks and treats. However the Mado resturants/cafes around the...city of Istanbul just stand out from the other cafes and restaurants. The design of this restaurant is different from other places so it does catch your eye. It offers a little more stylishness in terms of the space, ambience, design and atmosphere. I have found the staff usually very friendly and helptful and a bit professional. The menu offers a good variety of meals and drinks. The food is generally well prepared and arrives in a short period of time and is quite delicious. Its an excellent place to enjoy some peace and quiet or to read or work on your computer etc. I highly recommend Mado restaurants/cafes to travelers and tourists and expats.More
