We stumbled on this restaurant after looking for somewhere to eat for hours . The food was fantastic. My very sweet lamb with pomegranate almonds and prunes was for me the most delicious taste of Turkey and one I will never forget!
Thank you

Very touristy and our meals were pretty ordinary. Okay for people watching and a drink etc. It was very expensive for what you got.

Loved the inside of this restaurant.....the initial draw was the fact that it had a/c that was fully working in the heat of the day and free wifi! The food was excellent and lots of choice.
Staff were polite and spoke English very well.

In the summer heat in Istanbul, this is a great place in the shade - between Blue Mosque and Grand Bazar. Good food, ice cold beers and great drinks. You might hang out there for hours, watching people walk by - because you can :)

We were persuaded to stop in by the guy with the top hat who was standing outside the restaurant. We sat down for lunch and drinks, and it was a good experience overall. We ordered the grand mothers purse casserole, stuffed grape leaves and beer. Everything was delicious. The grand mother's purse casserole is served in a beautiful puff pastry. They also served fantastic bread and crushed olives tapenade. They have indoor and outdoor dining and free wifi. It was a nice place to sit and have lunch in the old city.
