A restaurant that you probably could find anywhere in the world, but the food and the service were ok.

My husband and I just went here tonight after walking past the many restaurants and trying to decide on one. What drew us in was that the guy at the front was not pushy and just let us browse the menu without trying to harass us at the door like the other places. The service was poor (I think they... More

The waiters were highly attentive and arranged a mixed platter which was excellent. There is a good view over the water and the combination of good food, good service and excellent value for money makes this a restaurant to which you would return if staying for a few days.

We have been to this restaurant a few times before on our visits to Istanbul. We have always had a very nice meal here and the staff are very pleasant. The view over to the old city is spectacular especially at night. The baked shrimps are delicious as are their casseroles. It is a typically tourist type restaurant, but we... More

After you sit down (the view is good) we didn't see the waiters that much so it was even hard to order something. We ordered a... More

Fabulous dish. It was flambeed on our table before serving. The service was top notch. A very pleasant experience. Also, we sat on the second floor overlooking the Bosphoros.

We were hard sold a meal at this restaurant and regretted it. The octopus salad clearly came out of a tin, the chef's salad was little more than shredded iceberg lettuce and a cloud of cheese. The restaurant was cold and the staff did not speak much English. Having been lured in by a promise of free coffee and dessert,... More
