“Magical night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

We just had the most fun and relaxed with the friendly and down to earth waiters. The food was excellent and the restaurant was somehow both in a quiet area and then there were also people passing to keep the atmosphere. So just go and enjoy.

“Ah, so relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

Havin lunch in the shade, with a soft breeze, drinking natural juices and heating the best Kebab, pizza and salad. The place is decorated with persian carpets and turkish lamps and furniture, the staff is really nice and chatty. It's located in the restaurants street that's on the back street of the Blue Mosque, look around and you'll find it.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

We had an evening meal here 2 days ago following recommendations from Trip Advisor, and we were not disappointed. The food was fantastic, the service was lovely and friendly, and it's right in the heart of things. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in Istanbul!

“A nice and comfy place with Brilliant Turkish pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Nice location at the heart of the old city adjacent to the four seasons sultan Ahmet , comfy place to chill after a long day touring the old city.with very friendly staff,Omar the head waiter is clearly an addition to the experience
Food is good but not exceptional, appetizers are ok the testi kebab is average but the mixed pide (Turkish pizza) we have ordered was excellent , the best I have had in istanbul so far..
Nargile ( Shisha) was okk specially that Omar pointed out it's not their speciality
I recommend this place for a chilled and comfy lunch after a long day of watching mosques and monuments
