To eat at Pandeli is like
taking a step back in time. Pandeli first opened his restaurant
in Eminonu in 1901. The full scale restaurant of the same name
is now located in the Spice Bazaar. Ottoman stone and turquoise
tiles adorn the walls and floor as they did hundreds of years
ago; the views of the Golden Horn from the windows and the calls
to prayer from the mosques nearby; and the sights and smells of
the Spice Bazaar outside make the atmosphere here almost
magical. Almost 70 different dishes grace the menu, including
chicken, fish and meat doors. Lunch at Pandeli's is a must for
anyone traveling to Istanbul.
Open only for lunch, 11:30am to
