My friends and I came to the Privato Cafe for a breakfast and we were very pleased with the quality of food and service. Everything was really delicious and fresh. The breakfast we ordered (serpme kahvaltı) was ideal for 3 or even 4 persons. In...addition this place has a charming interior and there is also a partial view of the Galata tower. I definitely will visit this Cafe again and also recommend it to my friends!More

Nostalgic setting. I enjoyed dining at Privato. I found it induced a comfortable relaxed atmosphere with very delightful staff.

That was the worst coffee in my life. Expensive. Poor food quality. I didn’t understand what is so impressive in that place.

Want experience eating like a sultan/a? May be just traditional village food, but i imagine the effect is the same. Amazing fresh ingredients, gorgeous varieties of breads and a cheeses, salads, jams and tapenades along with a taste test of tens of Morning tapas Turkish...style along with solid cafe and fresh juice offerings in a shabby chic comfortable environment. Plus sampling a variety of pancakes and pastries, savory and sweet all satisfied. Can’t be beat. You would be remiss to miss the Istanbul treasure.More

Dropped in on account of the fact that this place is close to my apartment and highly rated. Friendly and attentive service. Had a few of the olive oil mezzes which were tasty but the portion sizes were much, much smaller than similar quality mezzes...that I’ve had elsewhere. Tried one of the jams and unfortunately it wasn’t very good. I think there is much better quality food to be found in the vicinity.More

Will never go again, my trip to Istanbul is not quiet well because of this place and this man, Hidir Eksi..... so LowMore

This is by far the best food place we’ve been to in Istanbul. We liked it so much the first time that we came again the morning after. The hospitality, atmosphere, quality / variety of dishes is unlike anything we’ve seen in the rest of...the city or even outside Turkey. We cannot recommend it highly enoughMore
