Neighbourhood: Sultanahmet
Description: How to reach us: 1) Via Tram:(Takes 15 min from Kabatas station, 3 min from Sultanahmet)Get off the tram at Gulhane station (see the map below), at the traffic lights ahead take Ebusuut St. to the left and up the hill. After 2 minutes (50 meters) you will reach Sultania Hotel. Our restaurant is at the ground level opposite of the hotel building.2.) I am near, I may walk:If you are staying around here it is probably 10 to 15 min walk along the tram line towards Sirkeci direction. When you reach Gulhane station (see the map below) look for the traffic lights ahead. Take Ebusuut St. to the left and up the hill. After 2 minutes (50 meters) you will reach Sultania Hotel. Our restaurant is at the ground level opposite of the hotel building. 3.) I’ll prefer taxi:The driving directions are complicated around here. If you’ll get a taxi, it is better to tell the driver that you want to get off at Cagaloglu, just after passing Sirkeci train station (you can show him the map). Take the street on the left (Ebusuut St. opposite direction). It takes only a 5 minute walk by there.

“Excellent table, very nice people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

Our hotel was just next to the restaurant and we consider ourselves as being lucky to meet these people. Very warm and with a good sense of humor.
The food is also very nice, the best that we had in Istanbul in our 4 days spell. I recommend strongly the grilled octopus.
I'll go back to Istanbul and I surely hope to meet Mustafa and his buddies again :)

“Fantastic night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

We found this restaurant on our second last night in Istanbul and had such a wonderful evening we returned for our last night in the city. The food was fantastic and was really affordable, but the standout was the service. All the staff were genuinely warm and friendly with a fabulous sense of humour. They truly made our evening special and we recommend Déjà Vu to anyone.

“We had an excellent meal here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

We had an excellent meal here. It was the last night of our holiday in Istanbul and we certainly saved the best to last. The food was excellent. The service was friendly and to a high standard. We were served by Mustafa Kutluk, who helped to make our evening feel very special. This restaurant also represents excellent value for money.

“Great theatre, great bread, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

We are staying next door and have eaten here twice in a three day stay which says something. The food is the best we have eaten in Istanbul and very reasonable. We had the Testi Kebab cooked in a clay pot which was on fire and theatrically broken before we ate it. The theatre was an added extra as the contents were delicious. Fikret our waiter provided excellent service, very friendly - ask for him if you find yourself there! You might find us here tomorrow!!
