“Tasty Treat”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

This Italian-style restaurant came to our rescue when we just couldn't decide where or what to eat. It's a little away from Taksim Square, but once located, the freshly made, typically thin-crust and very light pizzas seemed like comfort food to someone uncertain about Turkish food. The wines were very good and reasonably priced, which is difficult in Turkey because alcohol seems to be highly taxed. The service was slick and the place popular although tables outside seemed to be on a terrace situated at a rather busy traffic intersection. We'd have no hesitation in returning.

“Best Service and Amenities in Taksim”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Food and beverage choices were excellent.

Service was fantastic. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. On only second visit the wait staff knew my beverage order and had it for me within a minute of being seated. Thank you very much Bahar, Eminé, and Erowan.
Hope to see you again soon.

“Simply Perfect”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Faros wine had become our favorite restaurant in Istanbul Turkey. The food was simply amazing, it really doesn't matter what you order, from Italian to authentic Turkish cuisine, it's all delicious. The atmosphere is cozy, the service is fantastic and the price is reasonable. This is a restaurant you must go when you are in Taksim Istanbul, you will definitely not regret it.
