Noisy restaurant. Awful service. And the food doesn't worth the visit. They surcharge stupidly the tourists. So go eat somewhere eles.

They have lots of pictures of their food but what you see is not what you get. We ordered shish kebab that showed two skewers but the dish delivered came with one. Not that good either.

Had several meals in this restaurant over the course of my 10 day stay in Istanbul and I have to say this place had the freshest seafood out of all the places we've tried. Try the calamari here - they are out of this world!

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
