I love this place so much I came back to İstanbul just to have another serve of the sultan's favourite! It is a perfect taste of turkey with aubergine and a hearty spicy meat stew (think Mediterranean not English) Pepo is my home away from home when I'm in Istanbul (from Sydney).

Second time I went to Pepo, and second time I am very pleased about the quality of food. It is a very pleasant restaurant with al fresco dining. This time I ordered seafood: salmon tagliatelle and seabass. Lovely! I definitely recommend this place.

Neighbourhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
