Really cozy place to hang out with friends and enjoy nargile (apple+mint flavor was excellent!) after the dinner! Very friendly staff, beautiful decor, good music, excellent wine. We had a great time while the rain poured down outside….

We couldn't give this cafe five stars purely because we didn't eat there and wouldn't necessarily consider it a restaurant. In fact, we wouldn't recommend coming here for the food at all - the main reason to come is for the nargile, or sheesha and the relaxed atmosphere. There's a good selection of flavours including the typical apple and mint but also rose and even alcoholic water-pipes ranging from red and white wine to vodka and red bull and even whiskey and baileys. It's quite hard to miss this little place as it's hidden away up a little backstreet making it even more inviting with its cushioned outdoor seating and colourful lamps. Lovely evening.

When visiting Istanbul with a group of students we ended up at this little place on 3 out of 5 nights (would've been 5/5 if we found it earlier). Lovely place to hang out after dinner, smoke some shisha, drink and, after a couple of drinks, end up dancing around across the bar. It is a small place, just large enough to have a good night if you don't want to go all the way to a big club. Aslan, the owner, is amazing - he made our nights end in a party with his enthusiasm and music choices (even played some Dutch music). He will make you laugh, tell good stories, and will make everyone (even the shy people!) dance like crazy. If I'd go back to Istanbul, I would definitely visit this bar again!

Simple place, tables and chairs, good nargilia, unusual for Istunbul cafe music. Stuff is quite "cold", but everyone can make good nargilia. Thanks.

Awesome little hidaway at the end of an alleyway. Friendly staff, good music, excellent nargile/shisha. Didn't have any food, went to chill out after dinner and played a few games of backgammon over nargile and drinks. Well worth a visit.
