Excellent food. Portions were quite large. The fish (in paper) was subtle and so good. Also, we came with my kids. They had a good variety of foods that kids will eat (not too spicy). Friendly staff.

The menu for two was very substantial! We had salad instead of dessert. The selection of cold starters was one better than the other. Warm starters not as impressive. Food is very tasty but rich. We had trouble eating it all.

again one of my favorite style of restaurant - the food to share concept. Food was really excellent, nothing fancy but that's not the point of this concept. Very friendly service. One of the better restaurants we had during our city trip

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.
