Eat out at the classic Karaköy Lokantası

Restaurants Turkish Karaköy Karaköy Lokantası

What is it? Karaköy Lokantası is one of Istanbul’s most iconic restaurants and a popular lunch spot located in the eponymous historic harborside neighbourhood.

Why go? The classic eatery is perhaps best known for its heavenly hünkar beğendi, a remnant of Ottoman palace cuisine made with slow-cooked beef on a creamy bed of mashed eggplant. At dinnertime, Karaköy Lokantası becomes one of the meyhanes in town with its outstanding meze.

Don’t miss: The fava bean purée is an excellent starter while the grilled octopus is our favourite main dish on the menu. Best enjoyed with a glass of rakı.
