So the compulsory salad adds 4.50 but that's not much and you can have a good cheap meal by getting the pizza-like lahmacunlar - just 6 lira each and one might be enough with the salad.

Restaurant food was really nice a bit on the price side. A bit sly with the salad, placed on table but are not told about price until you see the bill. Potion size is big comparatively to most Istanbul restaurants

Had a hearty lunch here with my family and the food is good and well priced. The minced beef skewer is in my opinion their best meat dish much better than meat cubes. The food is brought quickly and even though the waiter didn't speak English we were able to manage by pointing to the menu. They give a few... More

While the food is great and price is fair, this is a multi floor kebap place in Istanbul with fascinating view.

I loved this place, the food was delicious and quite cheap. The service is fast, flexible and nice. As for the view on the rooftop, it is just incredible, you can even see Leander's tower while enjoying an excellent Künefe along with a cup of Turkish tea :).

Well, I really can say that this place and this restourant is my favourite definitely. The location is easy to find, immediately next to Ortakoy square. I ate durum, so delicious, spicy, with so interesting service of ayran (turkish milk). It is coming with side dishes, some turkish spices, salads.. It is nothing to say that I loved it. It... More

When we passed by the Besiktas neighborhood, we stopped by this busy place to find a restaurant to have lunch. We ended up in this place. A young waiter gave us the menu and had a little chat with us, he even asked for our names. We ordered our main course and before we got those, we got a lot... More

I love this place. The food is delicious and not expensive. Here you can eat some traditional Turkish food. Before ordering you will get a choice of salad and bread. Nothing special, but it's included. The service is friendly and very fast (try to learn how to order in Turkish language ;) ) A lot of locals come to this... More

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
