A great find in the old town of European side of Istanbul. Classic meze that you would have eaten during the Ottoman Empire days. The usual cold (artichoke/ aubergine/ beetroot/ fish) were all delicious and topped up twice. Hot were all tasty with the highlights...More

This narrow small restaurant is in the heart of the street warren that is Beyoglu. However, it's also very handy for Metro stops. Going down a few steps, you are given a warm welcome. The menu has a varriety to suit most, and other contributors...More

Visited Aheste recently with a multinational group of colleagues from the office and the overall opinion was that this place is pretty impressive. We were there for a business dinner for which we have opted for the "Sample" menu. This offer consists of a variety...More

Fantastic. The tasting menu is a selection of cold meze first, and then a second course of hot meze. Once that’s all out of the way you can order more of whichever were your favourites and it was absolutely outstanding value. Friendly staff, good value...More

We had a great time at Aheste. The food is brings a modern twist to Turkish cuisine. The mezes are light and extremely tasty like true flavour explosions. The atmosphere and the service also top notch.

And delicious. Good selection of wine. Trendy decor with great service. Wasn’t very busy on Sunday evening but was packed when we walked out on Friday night so would need to book then I presume. Go here rather than Yeni Lokanta....

We made a reservation for a romantic dinner at this cosy, sweet restaurant while staying at the Pera Palace which is only 50 m away from the place and it was everything we had expected. The service was very friendly and sincerely warm, the atmosphere...More

One of the best meals we have ever had! We had the tasting menu and the meze was sublime - special mentions for the Persian rice, the smoked beetroot salad and the broadbean mash. The mains did not disappoint, especially the calamari and the aubergine....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
