“Friendly and chill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

My wife and I joined my family on a trip to Istanbul over the Christmas holidays, and on our way back to the hotel the two of us and my sister would often stop in and pay the Hippodrome visit. Great place to relax, have a drink and reflect upon your day.

In the mornings, we'd sometimes pass by and see Antonio out front, where we'd give us a warm hello and a "see you tonight". We felt more like locals after one week in Istanbul than we have in five years of living in cold, frigid Toronto. The Hippodrome played a significant role in my and wife and I determining that Istanbul just may be our favourite city in the world. Thanks again, Antonio.

“Small local bar and restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

Located in an alleyway its difficult to find if u start off from the main attarctions in sultan ahmet. Tried the kebab and prawn sauté which were so so. The house bread pudding was a disappointment. But the place looks good and is fair

“Great local bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

We found this bar the first night that we were in Istanbul. We used this as our local bar and were
pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food (especially the casseroles). After our day of sight-seeing we headed to this bar. Antonio and the rest of the staff were very friendly. We would highly recommend this bar.
