This small and beautiful located restaurant in Galata is an absolute eyecatcher for romantic tourists with a sense for regular türkisch cuisine. Though the furniture and the atmosphere make a nice impression, the dishes were not that good as in thoundands of the other little Büfets and Restaurants in Istanbul. Especially in relation of the unreasonable for the small portions.

Mysterious and cozy, you would never expect while walking on Galata area ( the historical area of Istanbul)to find such a miracle....you enter the place and immediatelly you stop and stare all this wonderful vintage decoration and you start steping backwards at your early childhood with the smells of your mothers and grandmothers receipes...you stay at the amazing garden and you feel like the queen of Pera, with Bosphorus wind refreshing the area! Just visit it and after you will write your own stories...

This is a very cool restaurant, the employee's there gave great service,and you can get awsome Turkısh home-made food here. The owner of the restaurant cooks everthıng herselfö she is a excellent Chef I think she cooks best Turkish food in İstanbul!
It is a must for the Turkich Food experience!

Just returned from a 4-day trip to Istanbul, and visited Acik Mutfak two nights in a row to sit out at the front table and watch the cats pass by. This is the very opposite of formal dining, and all the better for it: good home cooking in a very pleasantly laid-back, low-key environment. A scattering of outside tables, a few more tables inside, candles in jars, gentle jazz music, and a small open kitchen - all in a home-made, hip-rustic style. I can't comment on the hot food because a shared meze plate + a very good pistachio pud was enough for two, but the ambience made it very special. A place to linger on a warm evening. Like another reviewer here, we stumbled upon it by accident while ambling the streets, and would happily return.
