The service was spotless and the food was good. We were three guys and spent entire evening in the restaurant. Keep in mind that you should do a reservation before hand.

They offer a good choice of mezze. The paper wrap fish and main meat disk were ok. Service is good. Price is relatively expensive (avg 150-200 TL pp with 1 glass of wine).

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
