Casita Bebek

Cevdetpaşa Caddesi No. 15, Bebek, Istanbul

The Bebek branch of this popular mantı (Turkish-style ravioli) restaurant chain, housed in a pavilion-style building, is particularly appealing for its marvellous Bosphorus views and cosy interior.

Don’t miss their house dish ‘Feraye’, in which the mantı are fried and topped with a tomato and garlic yoghurt sauce. A tasting plate for the mantı novice is also available.

There are also branches in Nişantaşı, Etiler as well as other areas in Istanbul, and in Bodrum.

Good food also at Happily Ever After and Kantin for a take-away lunch. Meanwhile, Lucca is great for a cocktail.
