We went to this cafe in the evening and had really delicious dinner. I tried different meze which were all great - I highly recommend mücver! Service was very attentive but never intrusive. If I visit Istanbul again I will for sure come again.

We (three thirtyish girls) had breakfast here and it was great. The hollandaise eggs (with a side of bacon) was possibly the best breakfast I've ever had. The eggs were poached to perfection, there wasn't too much hollandaise sauce. The toast had this amazing pesto...More

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
