“Great service, good food”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

We had a variety of dishes and they were all tasty. The guacamole was a bit bland, and the caesar salad far from the original, but good. The best was the welcoming atmosphere though. I spilled some of my margerita and without asking the mess was cleaned up and the drink topped off. The music was nice too. We can definitely recommend it, though the space is limited, they can serve maybe 20 people.

“Good food, friendly staff.”
Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

Had chicken quesadillas and taco beef plate. Very tasty. Probably the best Mexican food in town. Friendly staff, sincere yet not pushy. Will definitely visiting again with friends.

“Great location, excelent atmosphere.”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Early evening beers, grasping the last of the sunshine on the little terrace. The area is buzzing and the cool vibe makes for an excellent pause in a fantastic day. Most recommended.

“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! :)
