“Fantastic evening!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

Found this fantastic little restaurant via tripadvisor, and we certainly were not disappointed! Located downstairs, with a lovely intimate patio area, both the service and the food were excellent! The owner speaks very good English, and was really friendly, recommending some of her favourite restaurants in Istanbul for us to try during our trip. Thanks for a great evening!

“Intimate & friendly place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

This place was highly ranked and located near the Istanbul Convention Centre. The owner was helpful with my order and offered useful suggestions. For starter, I tried the Ayran soup which was a cold yogurt soup. That was something which I found very unique.
I ordered a Ravioli stuffed with sole fish which was excellent.
The owner explained the cuisine & we talked about many other things. I usually don't like to have a long conversation because I feel that this will somehow influence my true opinion.
The place was intimately decorated and full of character.

“Excellent Evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Juno is well marked but is down stairs with a cozy outdoor patio and a welcoming interior. The manager (or owner, not sure which), Celine, speaks excellent English and was very helpful. My husband asked about a Turkish red wine and she said that one of the better reds was also the least expensive. We enjoyed it. She also explained some of the menu items as the restaurant is not a traditional Turkish food restaurant however it does incorporate Turkish food with other dishes, such a pizza and a lamb dish.
The four of us thoroughly enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Another reviewer thought the prices were a little high but that was certainly not how we felt especially compared to other restaurants in the same area.
Celine also took the time to suggest other restaurants in the old town area and she spoke to us about interesting aspects of Turkish dining culture.
I would definitely dine here again and would recommend it to others.

“Great new place I have discovered”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I have lately visited this restaurant with my friends and absolutely loved it! The atmosphere was welcoming, the service was great and the food was very creative. I had a goat cheese and beet salad which was delicious. The ricotta cheese desert had an unbelievable taste with a slight fusion touch. I would definitely go there again!

“Excellent world cuisine restaurant at the heart of Nişantaşı district”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

Visited 02/04/2013 for dinner - Excellent world cuisine restaurant in case you need to change from typical Turkish food (which is also excellent by the way) - Outstanding welcome by the owner herself (we already came on Friday evening 29/03/2013 without reservation but had a very nice discussion with her, she pointed out other restaurants in the neighbourhood - see review of Mezzaluna nearby - another good address) - Excellent simple dishes not only Italian - Reasonable prices by local standards - Highly recommended - Note that this review is written by persons with strong continental European cuisine culture and might not be suited for people from other cuisine cultures especially Northern America, Asia, etc.
