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!

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.

My favorite meze / tapas restaurant in the city. Great service, rich wine list, limited but exquisite tapas menu, great main dishes. Don’t miss it. You’ll find yourself writing a similar review.

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
