We stayed in Cihangir in thr neighborhood and on monday night we were looking for something casual with a good vibe. And here we are in front of Otto, got attracted by the lights and greenery we saw. The minute we stepped in, it felt right. A restaurant taking up the entire outdoor section in between 2 buildings. Funky nice... More

Great service and ambiance. We went twice during the five days that we were there. Very cool music, and our food was perfect. Youngish crowd with many beautiful faces. Will definitely return.

We really liked this restaurant and its wide offer of turkish and international diishess and went there twice. The kids also enjoyed it very much and the outside seating was very nice and so was the staff.

Great place for dinner and drinks. We tried the tex mex burger which was really delicious, but the otto burger bun was not fresh, which was a bit disappointing. Recommended for a casual night out!

The food was average. The waiter was extremely rude. Only brought 2 plates for appetizers for 4 people, brought the wrong meal for my husband, and ignored our requests for the check a few times. Overall, it was a decent meal, but over-priced and so unfriendly as to have spoiled the evening.

This place is quite nice, with a large terrasse. The staff is able and English-speaking. Good to know: it offers alcohol (at least, beers and wines) and some dishes have some pork. I have tried the bacon cheeseburger and it was a pretty good surprise. The service was quick. They have also a good choice of pizzas and nice starters.... More

Great first impressions, nice setting off the road, vibrant atmosphere with lively music but not so loud it affected conversation. Drinks arrived quickly, starter was quick and good, pizzas were fantastic. Staff not overly friendly but mostly efficient and polite. Was a bit smokey but that is maybe just how things are here when sitting outside.

Came across this place by chance, looked like it had a good atmosphere so we took a chance. We were after some authentic Turkish food so went with the flatbreads, they were great. Staff excellent, helpful and attentive. Thank you!
