Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night, Delivery, Reservations
Neighborhood: Sultanahmet
Description: How to reach us: 1) Via Tram:(Takes 15 min from Kabatas station, 3 min from Sultanahmet)Get off the tram at Gulhane station (see the map below), at the traffic lights ahead take Ebusuut St. to the left and up the hill. After 2 minutes (50 meters) you will reach Sultania Hotel. Our restaurant is at the ground level opposite of the hotel building.2.) I am near, I may walk:If you are staying around here it is probably 10 to 15 min walk along the tram line towards Sirkeci direction. When you reach Gulhane station (see the map below) look for the traffic lights ahead. Take Ebusuut St. to the left and up the hill. After 2 minutes (50 meters) you will reach Sultania Hotel. Our restaurant is at the ground level opposite of the hotel building. 3.) I’ll prefer taxi:The driving directions are complicated around here. If you’ll get a taxi, it is better to tell the driver that you want to get off at Cagaloglu, just after passing Sirkeci train station (you can show him the map). Take the street on the left (Ebusuut St. opposite direction). It takes only a 5 minute walk by there.

Very happy with the quality of the reasonably priced meal we enjoyed. The atmosphere and the personalities of the staff made for an enjoyable evening on the street. Have been back since in our week long stay in Istanbul

Probably the best place to experience delicious traditional turkish food in Istanbul in a great atmosphere, served by the friendliest and fun staff you will ever meet.
Must try the Sultan's favourite or Chicken Ayasofia.

PS: Ask for Antonio Banderas and you wont regret it :)

Yesterday we ate at this restaurant and enjoyed the meal, service and the ambiance so much that we wrote a review. What I didn't realize is that trip advisor has this restaurant listed twice, both as dejavu and Déjà Vu. Just realized it today when I checked on my review. As the bulk of the reviews are on Déjà Vu, and we were true to our word and went back for a second meal today, thought only fair to write a review here. Our choices today were every bit as good as what we had yesterday. Prices are reasonable and portions generous. The staff are great. If you are in this part of Istanbul, check it out. Can't imagine that you'd be disappointed. Bon appetit!

Excellent food, great friendly service. Good value for money. Enjoyed the outdoor ambience and recommend if you are in the old town.
