Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice place near Galata Tower, great atmosphere, good service and good food, a little on the expensive side but not too pricey. Fresh food with good ingredients and well made.

Not sure if we arrived at the wrong time but our experience was disappointing after seeing the excellent reviews. Had a mezze starter which was pre prepared and super cold. Most of the things in the mezze were fine if a little bland, but it...was too big for an appetizer and too messy. I had the lamb shank for main and it was very good but just needed something else. There was no jus or any vegetable that would have lifted it to make it excellent. The service was great, the staff friendly but the food that we ate was unfortunately good to middling.More

A collection of scammers beware. After I ate at the restaurant and asked for the bill at the end, I clearly asked if the bill included a tip, the waiter confidently answered that the bill did not include a tip, I paid the bill after...adding a tip. When I left the restaurant, the bill didn't work out for me, so I returned to the place and asked to check the bill again when I discovered a 12 percent addition to the bill. I asked what it was about and the restaurant manager said it was a service. I told him that I asked if the bill included a tip and they told me no, the manager claimed that service is not a tip, that's why I got the answer. In short, scammers who try to extract money from tourists in a dishonest wayMore

I have been 3 times here, with my colleagues. The place is cozy, in a wonderful place and very busy. Of you want to come here it is bettwr to reserve a place. The service is very caring, always present to ask for your needs,...and fast. We tried many different dishes, all were excelent. I would suggest try "aly nazir", the kebab mix and the cheese mix to explore traditional turkish cosine. I am sure you will enjoy this wonderful placeMore

We really enjoyed the dinner in this restaurant, the seafood as the main course , various tapas and prawns with the sauce were quite delicious. The menu has various types of meat (both kabab and stakes) , fishes and chicken as well as pizzas and...pastas. Anything that we ordered was just awesome and professionally cooked. The waiter Yunus bey provided us with the relevant advices regarding the meal, thanks to him. There was complement from the restaurant like sweet cake and amaretto shots that we really enjoyed. The price of the dishes and alcohol is above average but it relevant to the dishes they prepared.More

Well-made steaks. Service is better than most places, probably good and above in local standards. Prices are a bit high locally.

On approach we were a little worried as this restaurant looked a bit more like a drinking bar but when we went through to the back it was a lovely restaurant. Service was great. Food was fantastic - had the mezze for starter and then...I had the chicken skewer, others had the mixed grill which they loved, and then we shared a dessert (no idea what it was called but it was amazing, they recommended it to us). Food portions were really generous and the meat was cooked and seasoned perfectly for us.More
