We were looking for a good place to eat in the old town, and after reading the reviews we decided to go there. And boy it was a good decision- very friendly service, great food and Turkish coffee! And best of all, it isn't a tourist trap like many places around.
I would definitely return to this place again!

Lovely to sit outside and eat nice food while sipping a glass of wine. We tried other places but weren't too impressed. Here you are guaranteed food that is freshly prepared, (which we found is not necessarily the case elsewhere) and the welcome is great, thanks to the friendly staff. When we were a bit short of cash at the end of our stay, we were treated to a glass of wine by Effes, who is like one of your mates! (He stroke a particular chord with me as he also looks after the street cats that live around there). He is the most friendly and helpful host we met in Istanbul, and has a great sense of humour! You won't be disappointed with the food, the service or the atmosphere of the place. We also stayed in the hotel and couldn't praise the place more!!! Will definitely be back, highly recommended!

We arrived late in Istanbul due to a flight diversion and this place was just across the street from our hotel and recommended by the front desk. They had a great sign out front promoting lousy food bad service and warm beer that appealed to our sense of humor and the manager/owner at the door was a friendly funny guy - the total opposite of the many many pushy people we were to come across in the next two days. He made us feel totally at home and we had a terrific meal with very pleasant wine for a very reasonable price. The next night we went to a highly rated restaurant - started with H - down by the bridge near the spice markets and it was crap compared to this place, we couldn't wait to come back here for a friendly face and glass of wine to finish the night. Our host from the night before was there again and even shouted us a drink.
Its so very sad what has happened in Istanbul since we were there. It is an incredible city, but we will never go back. I hate being hassled endlessly so have a lovely memory of this warm and special restaurant, that doesnt push itself on you, it just makes you welcome and happy to be there.

I had great fun with Efes and would still sit there if I were in Istanbul. He makes you really feel welcome and special. Food is great, atmosphere inside and outside is brilliant. Have a try, you will not be disappointed :)
