Great place in Istanbul to chill out, they have a really casual atmosphere and it's a great place to hang out and have a beer. The food is also really good, and quite reasonably priced! The staff are really good and are more than happy...More

A great place to sit and people-watch, enjoy good food, and chat with friendly locals. We were big fans of the mezes platter but all the food was tasty. Comfy cushioned benches for relaxing on with an Efes. We'll be back!

relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
