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 good authentic Turkish cuisine, found totally by chance! Very pleasant experience and not over priced! The Baklava and apple tea on the house was delicious too.

Nice food, we took an ottoman dish that was very pleasant, our server Polat was very kind and smiling, and the prices série correct. Baklava and Apple tea are offered at the end, which is a good extra.

We first came across this restaurant when one of the hosts chatted us up on the street. Every morning when we'd walk past, he'd give us such a warm and lovely greeting and take the time to talk to us. Since we loved the hospitality we'd received, we dined at Deja Vu on our last night in Istanbul. It is a bit pricier than some of the restaurants outside the touristy area but it is definitely worth it! The food was spectacular, the servers were very attentive and the atmosphere was wonderful. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in the old city area!

We found this restaurant on street very close to the hotel. I had an orgasmic pleasure while I eat the crepes with spinac, ingredients and flavouring was almost perfect, lasting the spicy note make the plate fantastic. The negative note is that the cuisine may be too oily for some but you lost this perception once you taste the dishes. Highly recommended!! - for gourmet and all.
