The restaurant located in the historical part of Istanbul, Eminonu, very easy to find. When you get there all you're going to see is a normal place with tables and chairs and windows etc. But when you meet the chef (Can Oba) and get something to eat/drink you'll understand that you are in a place that can be called as Can's wonderland. Prior to a concert we decided to have dinner with a friend of mine and went there. We met Can Oba and he led us about our selections. I think I had one of the best dinner at this great restaurant. Very very very delicious, not so expensive. worth to go, so don't miss it

We came here for a business lunch and was completely amazed by both the food and the owner. It should be stated that you have to contact the chef/owner 2-3 days before if you are looking for fine dining.

The location is great - out on the street in a bustling neighbourhood full of simple diner type restaurants. The food was OK - perfectly acceptable but nothing to write home about.

After a morning of touring, our guide suggest Can Oba for lunch. We each got something different and loved everything we ordered. It's almost cafeteria style. This may have been the best meal I had in Istanbul. Eggplant and lentils. It was fantastic!
