Me & my friend visited this restaurant after our hotel recommended it during our stay in Istanbul. The food, service and environment was excellent. We were unsure of what to order and ordered food after recommendation from the staff and it did not disappoint! Music was played according to what we liked and the attention to detail was really good. We highly recommend a visit to this restaurant!

I definitely recommend Magnura if you are staying in Sultanahmet. Murat, the owner, is super nice and goes out of his way to make sure all his guests are comfortable and having a good time.

My daughter and I visited this restaurant during our visit to Istanbul as it was highly recommended by the hotel. I must say the service has been excellent, we felt very well taken care of by the owner Murat and his staff. The food was amazing and I also enjoyed by wine and beer, so much so that the night before we left for London we decided to go back again. We felt very comfortable at this beautiful restaurant and will definitely be visiting again.

On our first trip to Istanbul we went to Magnaura cafe by chance and had the pleasure of meeting the owner Morat. This place is where East meets West, at least it was for our family. The food is an amazing fusion of both worlds, the employees and Morat were extremely hospitable, welcoming to all our requests and very charming with my children, they offered us an excellent experience of Turkish/international cuisine at Magnaura along with a sweet ‘Eastern touch of warmth’.

If you are new to Istanbul I highly recommend this amazing place to begin your journey in Istanbul, it’s the secret gem of Istanbul.
Enjoy!
