This was definitely the best meal we had in Istanbul. The meze was gorgeous and the meat in the mains were perfect. It was a bit pricy. But worth every penny and still cheaper than a meal back in Denmark.

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
