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

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
