Located in the French Consulate, lovely and calm restaurant/café.
Friendly staff, good service. Delicious food. Perfect to enjoy tea time in a quiet place.

Hidden away from the rush of Istiklal avenue, this French-Turkish restaurant is a true gem, with high-quality food and great service. The garden is lovely to sit in during summer, and the decor inside is very tasteful.

We discovered this place just at the heart of Taksim, we ate good pasta, and a nice sandwich, different and a nice break from Turkish food.
The price was reasonable, and the desserts were really good.
The chef is not French by the way but as it is located inside la Alliance Française, there is a different ambiance
