Not much choice, but what we ate (vegetarian) was tasty and very inexpensive. The Turkish couple running the place is charming. It's fine if you are hungry, don't want to spend much, have little time and are not looking for anything posh.

Popped in for dinner and was pleasantly surprised. This is more like a take away restaurant/cafe rather than a full restaurant, as only seats around 10. The owners are a lovely Turkish couple who speak Spanish, Portugese and English. The food itself was quite good,...More

Istanbul is a tiny restaurant whose owners fill it with pride, charm and good food. It is one of the few places in Montevideo to provide delicious ethnic food. Pinar is more than willing to explain the menu in either Spanish or English. We listened...More

You should go to this place just for the service alone. The owner is so friendly and welcoming. The restaurant is cosy and small with a little kitchen in view. Food is simple and tasty and the menu has plenty of well priced options.
