It is very entertaining location in Taksim. We found very delicious local foods and local musics which was very enjoyable :) Do not give too much money to street musicians :)

You will pay a little more here, but you are not affected by the weather. The food is similar to that at other fish restaurants in Turkey, but the atmosphere can't be beat.

Worth a visit, but as others have said don't expect flowers. Small stalls and many restaurants with that traditional Turkish feel. Worth visiting.

Watch the Football game and exchange with the locals, we made a friend there. Waiters are experienced and they don't... More

Food is poor, service is slimy and you will get ripped off but the atmosphere... You have to do it once in a lifetime. This is one facet of Istanbul you shouldn't miss!
