We visited on a friday evening, initially we were almost alone in the place. From the start we got very good service and great recommendations on what to take. As we had visitors from abroad this turned into a great introduction to Turkish pides and some other select dishes. Value was great and would highly recommend it to anyone searching... More

This Restaurant is rather small and is located on Nispetiye street in Levent, right next to the Migros supermarket. They serve mainly pides, which are a kind of long version of pizzas . They serve pides with all kinds of stuffings. They are really big and you may have difficulty finishing them.

This place boasts of its long and delicious Etli ekmek which can be compared to something between a long pizza and pita bread with minced meat. You can try it if you are in the neighborhood, but not worth a special visit.

This was one of the best and most authentic Turkish restaurants I've experienced. The food was fresh and delicious. We started with a long pizza of equisitely thin crust baked in an open flame oven and a lovely bottle of Turkish wine. This was followed by the delicate flavors of several traditional starters. Then we shared mixed grill and a... More

I just can't say enough good things about Ikonium and have been here at least 15 times over the last two year or so. Food is always fresh and made to order. No frozen crap here. Dough is rolled out fresh, salad ingredients are chopped before your eyes. Make sure to order the meter long Mevlana pide and Gavurdagi Salad... More

Found this place on TripAdvisor and it was the best rated in this area of Istanbul. Took a taxi form the hotel. Was received very warmly. We started with a delicious soup, and a refreshing cold beer. Next we had a meter long pizza bread with cheese and meat filling the middle of the table. It tasted super delicious on... 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.
