This is a smart, trendy place which is slightly hidden but well worth hunting down. The food is from Antakya, down towards the Syrian border, and it's really well executed. The portions aren't huge, so it could be considered less good value than many places - but it's very good, and the staff are friendly and helpful. We'd be happy... More

I simply love eating out in hip Beyoglu and I do love it because of restaurants like Antiochia. If you are looking for traditional dishes, served in a stylish and modern atmosphere and delivered by extremely friendly staff then look no further. The cold mezzes plate was very well prepared as was the beef tenderloin, which we rounded up with... More

The beef durum and 3 mezes plate was super flavourful and reasonably priced given the quality of the food, the helpfulness of the servers and the incredibly chic environment. It's a few minute walk from the Galata Tower neighbourhood. Relatively easy to find. The best way to characterize the experience is that you were eating food that was worthy of... More

This restaurant has a very good name and I was taken there by a friend to give it a try. I felt very comfortable with decor (and tasty smells around!). Menu is based on the specific area dishes - coming from ancient Greek city of Antiochia. Good wines' selection and price ranges for all taste. Starters were good, however main... More

Superb, easily one of the best dining experiences I have ever had in Turkey - and I have lived here for some time now. A great, intimate, cosy place with a wonderful atmosphere and superb dishes. The bride's family were from Antakya, and told us that this restaurant is a regional institution. It is now my favourite restaurant in Istanbul.

Unfortunately I was running late so arrived at Antiochia at 10 pm on a Monday night. Considering the time and day, the restaurant only had a couple of occupied tables. The service was very good and attentive. I had the Sis and it was delicious. The bread they served with the dish was so good!

We visited this part of Istanbul incidentally. We were very lucky to 'end-up' at the Antiochia, the food and service were second to none in the area!

We read about this restaurant on Lonely Planet, Tripadvisor and Blog and we had better expectations. Appetizer was warmed up and not fresh made, we got 2 meals that were pretty heavy ! The atmosphere was really nice, service was great and wine as well!

Friendly welcome and service at this great restaurant upstairs in a side street. Food was excellent: a delicious selection of meze, particularly good wrapped kebab and some interesting dessert. Reasonable value too. Recommended.

Thank hoftravel

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
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 nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
