I've just had some beautiful chicken cutlet, and ayran. Bread came for free. I highly recommend the kyunefe with some tea. All waiters were pleasent and spoke English. Thank you for our first wonderful experience in Istanbul!

I went there because of proximity to the Taksim square and the TA rankings. In short, the food was okay - nothing really special, but also nothing bad. I had the pistachi kebap - the meat portion was ok but there were too few sides. Baklava - good. Starters - also ok. I don't know why it is so high... More

Visited here based on the "near me now" TA feature and its high ranking. It didn't disappoint!! The staff were lovely and we were seated right away. We had the pepperoni pide to share followed by chicken kebab and fillet steak. Both were beautifully cooked. There wasn't a single bit of fat on the steak. Restaurant is clean and was... More

Turkish breakfast is a great love of mine especially when you feel you need an edge to begin your day. You will definitely find it here where even locals choose to have a break and enjoy it. Go for the Turkish Breakfast and the omelette with salami plus of course an always worth drinking Turkish cay (tea)! Perfect and fast... More

I have had the pleasure of resting my eyes on these fine foods and enjoy the brilliant taste of their wine there. Just go there and order your choosing of a meat grill or steak or any kind of meaty food you envy!

We looked for a restaurant close to our hotel. The restaurant is located in a pleasant street. The menu was similar to all the other surrounding restaurants. We were a bit disappointed given the tripadvisor rating. The food itself is ok, nothing special, service is good. Not recommended.

Neighborhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
