Stopped here after going the grand bazaar for lunch. Nice friendly staff and quite cheap really! Chicken was very tasty and rice was light with salad, very good!.

Went here as we had enjoyed eating there with family during a previous visit. Afraid the food was far from being enjoyable this time round. Staff asked how we wanted our food, but this failed to make any difference to our dishes. The decor was ok, but nothing else was. Wasted our time and money and were disappointed that a happy memory had been marred.

Very friendly and welcoming on our first evening in Istanbul. Maybe not 5-star cuisine, but exactly what we needed - with a complimentary brandy to finish off a very pleasant and relaxing experience.

The Altinkupa was chosen as a place for dinner due to a heavy rainstorm and the nearness to my hotel and the Hagia Sophia. The restaurant has a handsome interior, comfortable and warm inside. The staff were instantly friendly and supplied 3 menus, a classic Turkish one, a pictorial one, and a pictorial wine list. I didn't find the hummous starter to be very impressive, but the lamb stew and the aubergine kebab were very tasty. Also the 100% cabernet wine was excellent. We declined dessert because the choices were not seductive enough. Not a memorable place, but perfectly acceptable.

This is a nice spot for lunch, good food and pleasant surroundings. Once we were inside, the waiters were attentive and friendly and we didn't feel rushed, despite taking our time.

The menu had a wide selection and food arrived in good time. Dishes were tasty, fresh and well presented.

A 10% service charge was quietly included in our bill without warning. An extra, expensive, drink was also wrongly added to our bill - this could've been a simple mistake, but be sure to check your bill.

Overall, a good experience. Shame about the surprise service charge which we felt was a little sneaky, especially as we're usually happy to tip well for a good meal.
