Located right opposite the Pera Palace Hotel, this excellent restaurant serves vast amounts of tasty food. The mixed meze menu option will almost defeat all but the most hungry. Skip lunch if you are intending to visit. Very popular so bookings a good idea..

I visit Mezze every time I come to Istanbul. The food is always sensational, and the service is wonderful. Highly recommended.

We had a selection of meze which were of the most flavourful I have ever eaten. Decent portions means one meze is easily shared by two people, and the presentation and flavours were really exceptional. Service is friendly and efficient. Don't miss trying this restaurant...More

Very small (book) and sensible choices. Meze a real cut above. Excellent. Brisk service as this restaurant is so popular they offer more than one sitting in an evening.

The lamb was delicious. Cold and warm starters were excellent. Good wine, the waiters in general were very nice. However on of them was having a difficult day which we decided to ignore because the others were very pleasant with us. Don't miss it!

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

Would probably work if the baby could sit on your lap. Otherwise, probably not too well.
