  • Am I really in Istanbul or did I just jet over to Ireland???! Everyone speaks ENGLISH! The service is quick. The staff are friendly. The live music is vibrant! Enjoy some beers on the ground floor or way up on the top floor. Don’t forget to indulge in some Irish inspired cuisine!
  • Good place, good live music, nice selection of beers but the service was mediocre with limited number of waitresses/waiters.
  • Solid choice of beers (delirium
  • We went with a friend, and food was really bad. Not saying that the chef harassed our friend too overflirtihg with her. When we complained about food, staff had a very dramatic outburst. There are better places you can spend the same money for better value in Istanbul. Don't trust the reviews it's all their snobbish Brit friends. If you are not a white western male, you never go there. They are chauvinistic and snobbish Better go to a local place. Cheaper and better.
  • The bartenders and waiters/resses are great, yummy food (take the chefs recommendation), wide range of beer, you can play darts and feel like a regular even it's your first day thanks to the welcoming staff! Very international and nice place to meet new friends
