What a lovely, vibrant area. Away from the shops close to the bazaar, and much more civilized. It is not overcrowded and it was just a nice shopping/eating experience. And of course, the beautiful tower at night makes for great photos.

It’s a historical building and the food was better than expected. Service was average but the way they ask for tips is horrible.
Food: ordered two cold starters, eggplant and vine leaf, also two main dishes, manti and grilled seabass. Not bad food.
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.
