We had calamari and fish durums. The calamari was soft and soggy, not crispy as you would expect. The durums was quite nice though. Staff was friendly and the prices was to high, probably because of the location.

This tiny restaurant serves excellent fresh fish. The shrimp casserole was delicious! We also had fresh anchovies which were some of the best we've ever had. We learned that they are a local specialty that this place really does justice.

Great & fresh seafood, nice ambience & good service. The place is a bit small, only about 5 tables and a bar. It can be crowded durung peak hours but it's worth the wait.

This tiny restaurant seemed an interesting option in the vicinity of the Galata Tower for a final night in Istanbul in a recent visit. So following Trip Advisor´s suggestion, I dined there. The place is tiny and service is excellent. But the food is far...More

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
