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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Amazing restaurant and staff! So friendly and treat you like family! Bring so many complimentary food and changes each night - desserts, apps and tea! All 5 family members loved our meals each night! Nothing we didn’t like! 100/100! Highly recommend. I got the clay...pot which added to the entertainment!More

We escaped the business of the Blue Mosque and surrounds and found Otantik a short walk away. The best meal we have had in Istanbul so far.

The food is fabulous and the service is excellent. This is our second time here. The Ali Nazik is soooooo good. The best I have ever had. They gave us dessert and tea after we raved about the food.

One of my favorite restaurants in Istanbul. The Adena kebab is the show stealer, but no matter your selection it'll be sure to impress. The atmosphere is definitely Turkish with a touch of modern Euro Cafe. Comfortable seating and atmosphere

Hospitable, from being greeted at the door to relaxing over some tea after our meal. The food was all excellent. We had lentil soup, falafel plate, vegetable grill, and mixed grill. Everything was very flavorful with plenty of bread on the side. Somehow they played...my favorite music on the radio. The freshly baked baklava was enchanting. Service was highly attentive and friendly.More
