Istanbul has suprised me this time. Shishly is far behind other places with its food & beverage facilities. You can hardly find a decent place to eat. Food at the bistro was good, however Atmosphere is average. Coffee was not drinkable.

One of the few places in neighborhood serving european dishes and alcohol. Staff is nice, some speak English. There is a smoking and non smoking sections. There are few larger screen TVs with music and football when there is a good turkish or european game.

This restaurant is probably the most overrated I've visited. Food was low quality, they didn't know how to make the cocktails on their menu. We had a Mojito which was made without lime and mint but with lemons and sirup. Will never go there again.

Big menu, ranging from steaks, burgers, fish, pizzas anf more. I've had the starter combo plattet which was excellent, and the steak and mushrooms which was so tender. Really good food and very cheap prices. And the service is super friendly.

We decided to visit the restaurant because of the Trip Advisor reviews. To be honest the food is mediocre at best. The service on the other side is incredible. I wouldn't suggest the restaurant for lunch or dinner; it may be great to grab a...More

Sisli
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area
just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used
mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its
chic streets are considered the very heart of
contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of
fashion and a thriving business district meet to
create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a

Description
Rendering cafe and bar services since 2005, Shishly hosts its guests by offering the comfort of a home equipped with a modern style. Merging distinct flavors from the world cuisine,Shishly takes pride in its selection of hand-made breads baked freshly in its own stone-oven, illustrating the perfect marriage between its cozy atmosphere and inspiring modern design. All dishes prepared with great care, Shishly provides an all-day-breakfast menu, even offering a “Fit for you,” option on the menu to accommodate the variety of daily diets. Shishly does not forget its young guests either! Winning the hearts of children with its “Kids” menu,Shishly composes healthy and amusing dishes, ideal for its youngest guests. Shishly values its own employees as much as it does its guests. Under this philosophy, Shishly has been operating with top quality professionals, striving for high quality excellence it both service and presentation. This unique presentation and service style has been a priority to follow since the first day of establishment. Based on the principle of always offering the best to its guests, Shishly is now serving and presenting its unique high-quality dining experience. WHAT’ S COOKING? Shishly freshly bakes all its breads, including its hamburger buns, by preparing the sour-dough using natural techniques, which do not include any additives or use any frozen products. While Shishly prepares its pizzas with devotion to the art of making pizzas, it comes as no surprise how they are adored and greatly preferred by its devotees. The pizza dough is prepared with natural yeast, while the sauce is prepared with oven-dried tomatoes and organic ingredients. FOR MEAT LOVERS… Shishly is also a venue often preferred by red-meat lovers; meat is procured from boutique butchers in the Tekirdag region. Furthermore,Shishly does not use frozen meats in any of its dishes, and purchases dried spices utilized in its meticulously prepared flavors, preserving the freshness of its organic seeds in its kitchen by grinding them in its restaurants. Yet, the magical detail which adds real flavor to Shishly ’s dishes is the olive oil miracle…The most distinguished rich olive oils procured from various regions that occur following the olive harvest, are hand-selected by our chefs and our expert palates via blind taste methodology. FAST SERVICE, NATURAL INGREDIENTS… The “pre-cooking” method, which is utilized in most restaurants today, is not preferred by Shishly . Upon receiving an order placed by our guests, ultimate care is displayed for cooking and serving the dishes in the most correct and timely manner. This way, all nutrients and flavors of our dishes are preserved. For instance, steam-cooking and grilling are among our favorite cooking techniques. ENRICHED WITH DAILY-PREPARED SAUCES… The greatest characteristic of Shishly salads, greatly adored by its guests, derives from the rich aromas of various greeneries we have hand-selected. Salads and spices are produced especially for us in different seasons. This is of the most important characteristics that differentiates Kitchenette from its competitors... Special extra virgin olive oil is used in sauces served with salads, which are prepared meticulously on a daily basis.
