“Relaxed and utterly friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

We ate here twice during out brief stay in Istanbul - the restaurant was a warm escape from the snow the first time and proved to offer delicious food and some excellent Turkish wine plus the attentive (but not overly), friendly staff who at the end of the meal got us hooked on wonderful apple tea. We went back on out last night and enjoyed equally an equally fun evening - they remembered us and made us feel very welcome again. The atmosphere is warm and cozy inside though there is also a street cafe area outside which would have been fun to sit in too, had there not been snow and torrential rain. The beautiful Ottoman style lamps all over the ceiling are stunning and the roaring fireplace inthe rear adds to the warmth. The food was excellent and good value. We'll have happy memories of our time in Turquoise, and Istanbul in general.

“Great food, good wine, fairly priced, no upselling.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

So many dining options - we loved this place because it was comfortable, had decently priced Turkish wine, had GREAT mezze and lamb, decently priced for Sultanhamet, had cozy heating lamps and comfortable cushions to lounge upon. So many places in Sultanhamet are interchangeable...it's hard to know where to go when everyone is trying to get your attention but this place was great.

“Great food at reasonable (ish) prices!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Ottoman style restaurant with good atmosphere and waiters with a sense of humour! The night we visited was very wet but the waiters kept us smiling .. as did the quality of the food. Guests at a nearby table had some sort of "stew" cooked in a pot and fired at the table ..very spectacular and apparently it tasted good too! For those of you staying at the Hotel Seraglio (recommended), this restaurant is within easy staggering distance!

“surprisingly cozy restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

This Istanbul restaurant is distinctive by kind of natural-cozy interior, very welcoming during winter time. Service and food is very good, and location is excellent.
