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.

An amazing place! Delicious food, helpful staff - very polite, fast, and so kind. I’d recommend this place to anyone. Also, I myself would love to come back here again on my next trip to Istanbul.

I recently enjoyed an outstanding meal featuring a shrimp pasta plate that quickly became a favorite, thanks to the best tomato sauce I've tried in a while and truly exceptional service. The calamari entrée was equally delicious, perfectly cooked and flavorful. To top it all...off, we were pleasantly surprised with a complimentary baklava that was simply great. Five stars all around!More

Lovely spot just outside the hustle bustle of the Mosque’s and Museum's. Very friendly staff and excellent food which isn’t overpriced. Good place to refuel before heading to explore more of the city! Would come back again.

The mixed seafood plate was probably fresh a few days ago. We weren't brave enough to try the stuffed mussels and other items. It was a disappointing and expensive experience.

Had a fabulous lunch of freshly grilled sea perch along with a tasty Greek salad that was different from a “Greek Salad” in Greece! The spices in the fresh tomato juice from the peeled tomotoes was something else, the traditional ingredients were all there, olives...cheese, cucumber , green pepper. It was wonderful. Loved the pitta bread and olive tapenade first. I had two glasses of very nice red wine and before I paid the bill a delicious piece of baklava was given to me. The staff were all excellent , helpful and efficient. The owner Veysel was so helpful in giving me directions and answering my many questions re things to do and see I can highly recommend this charming restaurant for high quality food and service at very inexpensive pricesMore
