Visited Istanbul in May 2013 and discovered this place by accident when we were looking for another restaurant and I'm so glad we did. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and the food and wine was lovely, as was the atmosphere of the place. A nice chilled out oasis away from all the tourist hustle and bustle.

A friend of mine recommended this restaurant in Istanbul. It is a small restaurant with a nice atmosphere, in a street with not so many restaurants so it is a quiet place to sit. My friend and I ate the testi with chicken, we both loved it! Staff was very friendly and helpfull. If you want to eat in a peaceful environment, this is a good place to go!

This place is definitely NOT #1! Walked all the way to go check it out and was sorely dissapointed. The host was. Nice and friendly but food was ok at best. Slow service and ok ambiance make this place a maybe on my list. Plenty of better joints to check out.

Candle lights and music created very romantic atmosphere.We felt ourselves as abroad.Foods was very delicious best we've had in Istanbul, and we have had consistently good food. The chef is a genius. Very small, and reservations may be needed. Be sure to try the Turkish wines, which are superb!

I'm not sure I understand this #! ranking of the Antiochland Café. The food was a disappointment for all in our party of four. We had the lamb, meatballs, veggies, etc., and I can't say that any of us thought this food was exceptional. In truth, the lamb was dry and overcooked as were the vegetables. Sad to say that our favorite part of the meal was the Baklava and coffee.
