“Red River Pub - my local in Istanbul”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

The Red River Pub gets its name from the 1948 John Wayne movie. It displays movie posters of the time, and plays great Baby Boomer music. There is a good variety of food which is good, and reasonably priced. The staff are very attentive and provide excellent service. The coffee is excellent for the Australian palate - mine, anyway. The beer and peanuts are fantastic on a hot day. The free Wi-Fi was fast and reliable. If I was staying in Istanbul for any length of time, the Red River would be my local. I'll certainly be back when I visit Istanbul in the future.

“Great hangout”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

I didn't eat here, except the super delicious peanuts that come with beer, so this review is simply a recommendation to stop in for a cold beer, great wifi, and nice atmosphere. After a long day trekking around the city, a cold Efes served with a smile at this nice little pub was one of the best beers I have had. Recommended for a drink at least

“thank you, chef”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

where to go when you are in the heart of Istanbul? of course, to Red River pub! we were here for a lunch as well as for a dinner... every time, meal was delicious and beer was cool.
I like to sit in such quiet place, opposite of a window, and look how many people go across, how trams harry to station, how taxi catch a passenger... and let whole world wait while you are sitting with exquisite salad and seafood pasta....
