I had this place in my wishlist before we went to Istanbul and I thought it would be a nice place to have a lunch and enjoy the atmosphere. It is a little hard to find , has a nice little garden to sit the atmosphere overall was nice but my problem was the food itself, it is way overpriced... More

We had been recommended to this restaurant tucked away in a very busy restaurant precinct . It was probably my only dissapointing in my dining out in Istanbul. The outdoor terrace is attractive but the service was offhand and the dishes we ordered were very standard interpretations of well known dishes

Located on the edge of Chahangir not far from the Lemon Gardens this converted Italian schoolhouse doubles as restaurant and party center for the upper crust connoiseurs of good food and drink (mostly ex-pats). Varied menu, heavy on local favorites including stuffed grape leaves, Circassian chicken (which was just a tad dry and lacking any pizazz as far )as taste,... More

This restaurant was on our doorstep and recommended by our concierge when we arrived but it was one of those "Off Nights" - let's be charitable. Perhaps a group of 6 was too large for them but service was slow, arrival times for food were extremely slow (main course after 90 minutes) - and 2 orders were wrong (and starters... More

I was lucky enough to be taken here during a conference and our hosts must of ordered every starter for our party. Quite simply everything was fresh was bursting with the flavours of Istanbul. The cezayir burek and Lamb Hummus were definite stars. For my main I had a local type of kebab, chunks of pita covered with sliced veal.... More

This restaurant has been around for a long time. It was very popular when it was new but its age is showing. Whilst the food is still OK, the setting is still quaint and lovely (think old majestic building but in the garden), the whole thing is now a bit stale. From the decor, to the furniture to the kitchen,... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
