We were talked into this place as our first choice Asmali Cavit was closed. The service is good and the place is usually full of people but the different types of fish we ordered were just okay. Too much oil. I wouldn't recommend this place...More

Food was average and over priced. The only restaurant we ate at in Istanbul that had an additional charge on the bill for Tax. I guess that was to cover the "complimentary" desert fruit plate.

Amazing food and people easy to order, since they show you sample of every meze available. Quite, little with warm ambient. It's nearby Galata Tower, where there are many bar/café for after dinner. Try here a very turkish food experience!

at the end of a very good meal a restaurant made desert surprise. We ate a full dinner around 2 pm, good beer, good wine, very good food. Lead guy speaks some English and is very engaging.

The service was wonderful but the food was average I don't agree with other reviews that waiters were pushy I found them pleasant and attentive

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
