This is the best restaurant I have been to in turkey and I go on average 2 times a year! The staff are wonderful and it is such a relaxed, friendly environment and great if you want to have a night out from the hotel. The party night is great fun for children and adults of all ages.

4 of us went here one Thursday night in September when it was entertainment night. For 55tl we had 3 course meal, entertainment and pick up & return to our hotel. Not the best food we have eaten whilst in Turkey, but considering what you get for your money we thought it was good value. The baclava was absolutely delicious.... More

Visited this Little Gem on a visit to the Ghost Town....our Trip was an Organised Excursion and used Muzzas as a stop. However we decided to have a walk out and found The Istanbul Restaurant. We ordered a Steak Wrap which came with chips and salad. The staff and owner were incredibly friend and took time to talk to us.... More

To be honest, we were a bit disappointed. 55tl(around £15) per head included a taxi to and from the restaurant, a three-course meal and entertainment. Very reasonable. And good recommendations from friends. But left us a bit cold and bored by the end of an evening which seemed to drag on. The food was ok. Not a particularly, wide range... More
