“Tasty!”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

I have revisted Picante many times, infact every time i return to Istanbul. It's a favorite of mine! Tasty Mexican food, fantastic cocktails and great music. After hours this restaurant turns into a bar/mini club - which is fab! You can dance away the night to the coolest tunes and relaxed & friendly atmosphere. I would recommend anyway visiting Istanbul to give it a try! :)

“Great Nachos!!!”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Probably the best nachos I've ever had in Turkey. We had the burrito, and chimichangas and were not disappointed. The atmosphere is great for a small place tucked away off istiklak caddesi, and the staff are incredibly friendly. Also, wonderlful frozen margaritas....delicious! Be careful with the special house spicy sauce, very, very hot ;))

Small, very cool place right in the heart of Beyoglu, Tunel area. Tapas are great, Margaritas are delicious. They are celebrating their 20th anniversary :)
