About Us

“A beautiful rose merely blooms on its beloved land…”

Said Pandeli Çobanoğlu.

And he opened a restaurant purely to cook delights of this country. The year was 1901.

Many artists, kings, queens: notably Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, Queen Elizabeth the 2nd, Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar, Yahya Kemal, Audrey Hapburn and many others sat on those chairs and watched Istanbul from those little windows. And now it’s our turn.

Today, where all the other colors of this city fade into the past, this historical restaurant of 117 years, stands its ground and reopens its doors.

We are truly happy to host you where Turkish cuisine reunites with the history and we hope that you will enjoy its magical taste among turquoise Turkish tiles…
