The waiter we had could not be bothered, and the food was overpriced even for the Sultanahmet. The steak was way overcooked, and the mashed potatoes tasted as though they came from a box. The cheese sticks and chicken fingers were ok, and so was...More

We went at the North Shield near Istiklal street, besides a hotel. They have a good service, fluent in english, and a nice ambient, very confortable. A good choice to have dinner after a walk day.

23 Lira (£10) for a beer and a small glass of wine and a bad attitude from the waiters, not a very pleasant experience. I would not recommend this 'English' pub
