Excellent Mexican cuisine, the owner and her team were so kind and helpful. We had excellent Fajitas and portion was big. Prices are reasonable for the neighberhood. The place is small but with very warm athmosphere and recommendable for couples, friends or families.

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
