Description: It resembles a Greek tavern restaurant by the Aegean sea with its white and blue coloured decoration and frescoes on the ceiling. It is located in a cobbled stoned street in Sultanahmet ( oldtown) and offers more than 30 different traditional cold appetizers, hot appetizers and special home made mezes with very fresh seafoods.

I do like their service, their quality of food, the athmosphere very much. It is truly a place where you can enjoy excellent fresh fish in indoor or outdoor seating. The waiters are excellent especially under the sharp eye of the manager who is always willing to help out with your special wishes

Nice restaurant with excellent service. For me the best stuffed calamari in town. Try if you will be there.

So I have been to many fancy, chic, and
Posh restaurants. Usually good food is served in a hole in the wall kind of setting. But this place has the best of all worlds, great location 1 min walk from blue mosque, aya sofia, great food, and amazing service, and still chic. We went back a 2nd time for our last dinner in town! Alper helped us pick all the best menu items the 1st night. Don't miss the chicken plum, stuffed calamari, and oh the chocolate souffle!! Two thumbs up! And they were also very accommodating to my yr old nephew !

Our hotel recommended this place and we were very glad we went there. Not only does it offer an excellent fish menu, it has everything else as well. My husband ordered some vegetarian crepes and I ordered a fish dish. Both were excellent as was the wine and service. The prices were affordable and the atmosphere was very upbeat and the passing view was very entertaining. It was a perfect night.

Would definitely return and recommend. By the way the ladies' rest room was very impressive and welcoming - see photo.

This was our second trip to Istanbul and we again stayed at a hotel just around the corner from this restaurant. Having tried and enjoyed it last year, we went back -- five times! The food is delicious, the service excellent -- we were constantly kidding with the waiters, several of whom had an excellent command of English -- and the ambience very pleasant.

The ceiling of the restaurant has been painted Michelangelo-style by the owner, who is frequently in attendance at noon. We had the pleasure of meeting him once again, as you will see in one of our pictures.

Highly recommended. We will go back!
