Located at Nisantasi, the district that will never get old fashioned of Istanbul, Brasserie is a fine restaurant but is a pearl among a sack of thousand pearls. The service is not nice since the waiters has the luxury to treat you suiting their moods. The food is good, but not at a point to adore it. And added the fact it is quite too expensive for what it offers, I think brasserie remains at the low average.

Nice, but an expensive break on Nisantasi. The menu has a wide range from sushi to pasta. Avocado shrimps is a delicious starter. The music is good especially on friday nights.

I've read many reviews about this French restaurant in Istanbul guide books. I've also walked by several times and seen the place fairly packed. My husband and I finally went there to have a nice meal before I went back to the states in September. It was about 9:30 p.m. on a Friday nite and the place was dead except for one other table. You think that would've meant we got good service but we didn't. Plus, there was road construction going on just down the street.

Our appetizer of beef carpaccio was fairly good, but I think it cost about 40 liras. We both ordered pasta dishes for entrees. My husband's was a gnocchi covered in a very rich, awful tasting blue cheese sauce. My pasta dish was okay but I don't remember exactly what was in mine....a mushroom sauce I believe.

Anyway, I def. would not go back again as the service and poor food did not justify the price.
