Staff is helpful, always smiling. Meze's are not your typical ones. I have to tell you, don't go for extraordinary taste but interesting (and sone of them never heard of) mezes. Beef and lamb is good but their strong suit is fish.

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.
