Mothers Day in Turkey. Popped in around 1045 to popular and trendy restaurant in pedestrian street in heart of Nisantasi. Most people had breakfasted. Bad choice. It took 15 minutes for a cappuccino to arrive and over 40 minutes for a simple breakfast order. When we asked about our breakfast, a waiter snapped " the kitchen is busy". It wasn't.... More

It has the best location and it's really a fancy cafe. Very easy to stumble upon a celebrity here since they stop by here very often.

Met a friend here for lunch and the food was superb. I had the meatballs with tomato sauce and fries, delicious. Nice wine too. One thing to be aware of is that there are many of the House Cafes in Istanbul so make sure you get the correct one. There is another one 100 metres from this one next to... More

The food, the service is all good. The entrance is awkward because it's inside an apartment building with homes. The food and the garden and atmosphere are all fine. But it is overpriced. You really pay for the location and atmosphere rather than the food.

Having turkey and eggs sandwich and my partner having sucuk sandwich. That was delicious. The size of portion is huge and generous. The price is bit expensive but not that bad.... More

Staying in Sisli

Neighbourhood Profile
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
