We had a wonderful dinner here. The service, cocktails & food were a highlight on our trip to Istanbul. The ambiance on the outdoor terrace was delightful. We will be back!

The reviews below are quite true. Excellent tasty food, friendly staff, easy online reservation and cosy outdoor terras. We recommend this place, but make sure you ask for the terras with your reservation. Inside it is also cosy, but the terras is better.

Lokanta has a beautiful terrace, good music taste, fantastic cocktails and friendly personell. A perfect location if you want to ask someone to marry you - they just can't say no in here. I had a great time and would recommend everyone to try the...special martini-Turkish coffee!More

First, beautiful ambiance on the terrace Second, creative cocktails and good bartender Third, decent, solid food although not spectacular as in some meals on this trip through Greece and Turkey Fourth, indifferent service blatantly pushing higher priced items (-1 star) Fifth, I don’t appreciate a...12% service charge being added automatically to a table of 3 diners. I reward good service - rewarded good service with a 25% tip on this trip (hello Alex at Pallas in Chania, Greece) and, frankly, service today on a 3,300 lira + check did not deserve a 12% tip! (-1 star)! Bottom line - 3-3.5 stars mainly because of our indifferent server.More

Amazing place!!! We sitted in the terrace but the interior is also very good. Ever we ordered was just great and tasty. Cocktails was unique and of great taste. It is a bit expensive depending of what you will order but it deserves it's money.

We had dinner for three on Saturday night. Interior is amazing, very cosy and elegant, which is unusual comparing with other regular restaurants. The food was delicious, cocktails were really good. But the service level for such an expensive place could be way better than...it was - seems like the waiters were around, but it felt they did not enjoy servicing guests. Overall good experience, but would not go there once more.More

From the moment you walk in, you feel the magical atmosphere of the Turkish hammam. The place is situated in the old part of Istanbul and the hammam dates back to 1741. It is decorated with nice modern chairs which contrast to the traditional setting....But, that's not the only thing that captures you. The food is delicious and service is one of a kind. They served us 3 compliments- cold appetisers and dessert. I ordered the black sea salmon for the main dish but honestly it was not sth outstanding although tasty. Cocktails are on point. Prices are noticeably higher than in other places around the city. I advise you to book a table a few days before cause there are not so many tables in the garden. With the bill, they give you a nice paper bag with a set for bath- soap, a little towel and body lotion, isn't that amazing?More

A restaurant with history goes back about 300 years ago, great place, and different new atmospheres. Delicious food, great service, pleasant surroundings, and lunch menu is different than the dinner menu. High price Recommended

visited it for lunch and it succeeded our expectations. The food was amazing the indoor and outdoor seating area have an amazing aesthetic. The quality of the food was really high and the staff really welcoming and nice, both the guy that served us and...the doorman that found us a taxi despite the extreme rain. Don't miss the amazing Pide dishes and the kebabs. A true gem, really worth visiting if you are in the Sultanahmed area and you want something less touristy and more luxurious.You can find It in a peaceful street , in one of the best hamams of the town, such a nice concept. Couldn't recommend it enough.More

A fine dining establishment that is a hidden oasis away tucked away in a Hamam, and from the intensity of the bustling city. While upstairs is graced with a view of the old brickwork, downstairs also is perfect for the colder winter Turkish months by...the cosy log fire. Traditional Turkish food, simple but cooked to perfection, think melt in your mouth lamb and the Pides are a must. All accompanied with a great wine list. Be sure to follow with the rice pudding. It was divine! Thank you to the team for the lovely surprise. The perfect ending to your meal is sampling high-quality cocktails they have on the menu. It seems the cocktail scene is growing, and this place was exceptional. Friendly team, and upstairs you can watch the chef and his team in action. This restaurant will definitely make its mark next summer season. It has so much to offer. It is the most idyllic rooftop to relax and enjoy a long lazy lunch or a romantic dinner.More
