Our dinner experience at Lokanta 1741 was a true highlight of our time in Istanbul. Staff were so friendly and attentive throughout, regularly checking we were ok for drinks and topping up our wine when needed. The cocktail menu is inventive and unique, and every...dish in the short tasting menu was sublime. The overall atmosphere was really special as a result of the private enclosed feeling of being in the restaurant terrace and meant we happily spent 3+ hours dining on a warm September evening. To top off a truly great experience, we were even given a small gift from the downstairs hammam as we left! Would definitely love to return to this restaurant one day; the food, drinks and overall experience were worth every penny we spent.More

Latest gem in Istanbul! Don't miss out this unique experience and let yourself & your belly be pampered ❤ Delicious food, deserts and cocktails with a fair price point. Good for a girls-gossip nite-out or special celebrations.

If you want to spend a sublime evening in Istanbul - this hidden gem of a restaurant is a fantastic choice. We went two evenings out of four nights and it was a superb experience each time. Everything was magnificent - the location, the atmosphere,...the food , the most sophisticated cocktails ( try Lavender one with ginger- almost a violin concerto in terms of complexity and beauty of taste), music, warmth and great manners of waiters. We were served by the most charming and kind Ilhan who made great recommendations and did everything in his power to welcome and introduce us to this very special place. This memory will stay with us and we will be back as soon as we are in Istanbul again. Great place for a foodie , for an aesthete and for a person who likes refined .More
