My family and I went to this restaraunt several times while we were in Istanbul and absolutely loved it, amazing food, friendly and helpful staff and a beautifully authentic and clean restaurant. I would highly recommend it and so would all of my family- definately the best food in Istanbul!!!

The reason that we first went to Turquoise was because of Ossie, out on the street. He and the team outside were friendly and the service was excellent. It was nice to be able to sit outside and watch the World go by. The food was good and there was a good atmosphere. Good value and definitely worth a visit.

We had a less than average lunch in this restaurant, but the worst part is the service. The staff dont wear any sort of uniform - they wear street clothes. They are arrogant and offer poor service. Wine is expensive as in most restaurants we visited, but everything was overpriced for the quality of the food and considering the lack of professionalism.
A few doors away is where we chose to eat several times during our stay - restaurant Palato Sultanhamet. Please see my separate review. Avoid the Turquoise is my best recommendation.

The food was of a good selection of both Turkish and Eastern cultures. We were served by Necdet (the man of the street) who greeted us with open arms. The outdoor setting is the place to be, where you can see what is going on in the street. As stated, the food was great, and would highly recommend The Turquoise Cafe Restauraunt Bar for a meal or just a drink.
