This is a very nice place to have dinner in Beyoglu.

you can have "meza" like starters or main dishes: meat, fish and vegetables.

We had humus (very good), octopus (wonderful) and meat with 2 glasses of wine for 77 lira. A great value for delicious plates.

The Service is fast and friendly. There are young people working there in the evening. On the top you will be in a nice area to spend the night.

The restaurant location near Marmara Hotel was perfect.
The staff was gentle and prepared and gave us good advices to Istanbul nightlife.
The food was very good. Try Zucchini Fritters and salad with balck rice and organic chicken.
The building and the interior design (industrial style) were realy perfect. Check Ladies toilette for the great matchboxes collection.

Istanbul Culinary Istitute Café - Located very near our Hotel - Marmara Pera. We ate breakfast at the Cafe several mornings during our visit to Istanbul. Food, service, and location were very good. Slightly lost for a scheduled cooking class - they graciously helped us hook up with our group. The Café has a tiny sales area where we bought tasty and interesting natural jams and preserved fruits the students make from the produce of an outlying farm. Well priced - coffee at the Hotel - 10TL vs coffee at the Cafe 5TL.

We found this restaurant a bit by chance and it looked appealing so we went in. Definitely worth it! The food was very good with great presentation, service is good and not intrusive like in other places, and the setting is very nice! We had the mezze plate, grilled octapus, and beef tenderloin, and they were all delicious. We also had wine + deserts. They offered us some home-made liquor. Most of the servers are student, but we found that great as they were geniously attentive, smile, etc. We say that because we had restaurants with pretty cold service during our trip.

On top, the prices are very reasonnable for the quality of the food, and below many touristy restaurants that have much lower food quality.

We def recommanded it!!

With thousands of places to eat in Istanbul, it's tough to recommend this place. The food per se is not bad, it's just ordinary. The waiters are all young which in itself is not bad, they are inexperienced and don't make good recommendations.
