“Excellent food & wonderful service. Clay pot stew is excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

We loved this place. Had to visit it twice to eat clay pot stew again. Omer and Baris were excellent hosts & made our time in Istanbul feel like we were at home. Can't wait to visit again to repeat the experience & meet the wonderful people of Istanbul & view the amazing sites of old.

“Perfect environment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

We only had coffee, but I still have to chime in. We were meeting someone for dinner later, and I had great regret watching the amazing food arrive all around us. We sat outside on the cushioned benches and enjoyed the culture. Wished we could have taken advantage of more of what they had to offer. The coffee was great!
