I loved this place, the food was delicious and quite cheap. The service is fast, flexible and nice. As for the view on the rooftop, it is just incredible, you can even see Leander's tower while enjoying an excellent Künefe along with a cup of Turkish tea :).

Well, I really can say that this place and this restourant is my favourite definitely. The location is easy to find, immediately next to Ortakoy square. I ate durum, so delicious, spicy, with so interesting service of ayran (turkish milk). It is coming with side dishes, some turkish spices, salads.. It is nothing to say that I loved it. It... More

When we passed by the Besiktas neighborhood, we stopped by this busy place to find a restaurant to have lunch. We ended up in this place. A young waiter gave us the menu and had a little chat with us, he even asked for our names. We ordered our main course and before we got those, we got a lot... More

I love this place. The food is delicious and not expensive. Here you can eat some traditional Turkish food. Before ordering you will get a choice of salad and bread. Nothing special, but it's included. The service is friendly and very fast (try to learn how to order in Turkish language ;) ) A lot of locals come to this... More

Had lunch here with a party of 5. Service was excellent, portions were generous, food was very good. I had a plate with chicken and meat skewers. The appetizers were excellent as well. It was about $10 a piece for everything with a generous tip. Recommended!

Not a good lunch, standard flavors, bad location and staff who do not speak English. Istanbul offers better.

It is located at the heart of Besiktas. Just a few meters away from the Bosphorus. It is very simple place. Service is pretty fast. I have tasted many different food of them so far, I liked all what I have had. Especially recommend you the liver, the chicken and Adana Kebap in the wrap. Also the price is reasonable.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighborhood Profile
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighborhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
