Although some reviews have been poor, our experience at Mosaic was a very good one: yes, tourists are there but that is the location and, yes, it is expensive comparatively (especially the wine) but that is location and quality. The food was excellent and very good quality - very fresh and well grilled fish, and extremely good lamb done in traditional style. The service was good and understated and the atmosphere excellent. Really, this is worth a visit

I can't sugar coat it. This place was awful. THE WORST FOOD we ate in 3 weeks in Turkey. We were lured by the outdoor dining and the recommendation of our hotel.
The vegetables were canned/frozen. Observe the large photo of the dish with the plums/prunes-it was so unctuous and syrupy sweet I couldn't take more than 2 bites. See the cauliflower side dish?--pulled out of the freezer and microwaved to mush. While the service was polite and attentive, we should have opted just to drink heavily. It may have improved our impression and soothed the sting of the cost of this slop.

This was overpriced (and largely bland) food aimed solely at the tourist market and seemed as Turkish as Burger King. They also decided to add 10% service charge to the bill which always seems cheeky. If you want your decor to be pretty and your background noise to be American accents then this is the place for you.

Excellent location between the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Museum. Lots of Turkish favorites but food was not super special.
