“Faros Restaurant, Sultanehmet”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food, service and atmosphere of Faros Restaurant, because, from the outside, it appeared just one among many similar eating houses. We ate inside on rather a bleak wintry evening and loved the atmosphere. We could watch the trams pass by and see the bright colours of the Christmas decorations in the street. My friend enjoyed grilled chicken and I had a fresh salad. One of the other tables was served a flambeed dish for two from individual cooking pots and the rest of us were all quite intrigued as to what it was. Polite waiter service.

“My favourite restruant in Istanbul”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

After trying multiple kebap places, I had written off turkish cuisine as bland for sure. Was looking for Fuego restruant for lunch when stumbled upon this restruant. Tried the cookertime which is beef dish made with yogurt. It was to die for. Superb. Ended up going back for dinner there too and had the dush called mehmudiya or mehmutiya (rice with honey, nuts and apricots). SUPERB!!! The place is cozy, clean and with excellent staff.

This is the second time i have been to this restaurant the first being two years ago and food is still fantastic. Everytime i have eaten here i have tried something new but i would have no hesitation recommending the garlic mushrooms in cheese - a real winner.
