We made a reservation as 4 girls at Zarifi which is a Tavern in Beyoglu.
What makes this place to be rated as Terrible is the food&drink.You pay 150 TL (more than 50 Euro) per person for unlimited local drinks but they do not allow you to have your drink on your table so you always need to call the waiters (if you can find one) to make him bring you 1 more drink.I think it is a strategy to serve less drinks and make more profit.It was very annoying trying to find someone to order drink.Indeed our table was the front one just in front of the stage.The dinner was included but if you can call it as a dinner.If you decide to go Zarifi then be sure to have your dinner before since you will not be able to find food there.They serve as 1 person although we were 4.The male belly dancer show was magnificent as he was very talented and professional.
