If you want to get a coffee and shisha and enjoy a lovely view you must visit oba cafe. But for Istanbul restaurant the food in not good we didn't eat what we order. The place is crowded you have to wait for a table and every one is busy to serve you.

It's a nice time to spend beside the phosphorus if you like you can eat a nice pizza here, or drinking tea or maybe traditional Turkish coffee.
