This is a charming open air restaurant in the middle of a residential area. The great thing was that you had a fixed menu and did not have to worry about selecting a dish, the food was vegetable and fish based. The starters comprised of...More

This was probably the best restaurant we've been to in Istanbul (in 5 separate trips). I love a fixed menu, which is what you get here. The food was excellent; superlative meze. We had 5 courses and drinks for €40 each - not the cheapest,...More

This place is an amazing find. In the whole of the set menu - seafood pilaf, followed by 15 cold starters, 3 warm ones, a fish main course, desert and home-made cherry liquer - there wasn't a single dud dish. Everything was fresh and utterly...More

Enchanted as we were by the shady oasis tucked away from Sultanahmet's touristy traps, herein we found ourselves subject to disappointment. The waiter was rude, insisting that we could only order the 35 or 50 euro fixed price menu. When we asked for a la...More

For 50 euros, we got a ton of cold appetizers, some delicious hot ones, the main course of delicious sea bass and dessert. Also two bottles of wine! It was a fixed menu but definitely worth it.

I opted for the 35 euro/115 TL meal inspite of the waiter's conviction that they didn't offer such a meal. A few of the appetizers/mezes were delicious, though the main course (Sea Bass) was underwhelming and flavorless. The dessert was lackluster as well. Small deep-fried...More

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the

relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to

From memory they had a range of small dishes which were delicious but can't remember if humus was included! Then a main fish dish and dessert. There isn't any choice. You get what you get.
