The food was excellent, the service good, the atmosphere peaceful and the surroundings comfortable. The only reason I have knocked a star off is because it is on the pricey side. Similar quality can be had nearby at better prices.

The breakfast for two that we had featured many small dishes spread across the table. My boyfriend and I both agree that it's the best breakfast we have ever had, with the most beautiful ambience. Favourite in istanbul!

I love Café Privato! The food is perfect, the crockery is exquisite, the staff are really friendly and helpful. It has a great view of Galata tower. I would eat breakfast there every day if I could.

Sat in Cafe Privato. Ordered the village breakfast. Mountains of gorgeous food. The jams are particularly good as not too sweet, more like stewed fruit.

We got there just after they opened and ordered the Sultan's breakfast. Great array of different and unusual (to a British palate) savoury and sweet dishes. Everything is home made and organic and there were some delicious things to try. They don't quite get the...More

We stumbled upon Privato on our first day wandering around Istanbul and went back twice more over the week. The vibe was relaxed and friendly with small tables in the sun out back and couches under heaters at the front. The staff are super nice,...More

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
