I enjoyed Turkish tapas at lunch and dinner. It was really good! I recommend chicken & rice and sliced beef with sage butter. They prepare nice wines, delicious food and great atmosphere. I will definitely go for a meal again!!!!!

Dined twice with my family; first on hotel recommendation, second simply because it was just so good. Cosy intimate space, welcoming staff, delicious food (especially the cafe de paris steak), scrummy wind list, and great atmosphere.. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed the vibe of this small restaurant. Reason for visiting is that we were very tired and wanted to have some food close to the hotel. The employee of the hotel recommended it and we really enjoyed the different modern Turkish plates.

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
