Cecconi’s Istanbul

By | Blog | No Comments
Following our recent visit to the newly opened Soho House in Istanbul, while visiting our holiday apartments on The Princes Islands; we couldn’t help but return to sample the foodie delights of the adjoining restaurant ‘Cecconi’s’. 
A favorite of ours from our London and LA travels, it seemed fitting we should go for third time lucky. And how lucky we were. This restaurant does not disappoint. Its Italian roots, and simple quality of dishes and produce are a constant winner with my Italian husband, who chose the 
Beef Tartare with Black Truffle, accompanied with the Spaghetti Lobster. Not the most usual selection to pair together, but he simply couldn’t decide. I choose the grilled octopus with shallots celery and olives, followed by lamb chops, artichokes and mint – WOW – a veritable sensory explosion, the taste, the smells, the colors – AMAZING. The food really was outstanding, as was the ambience and service, and when we next return to our holiday apartments, we will be stopping by to sample more from that mouth watering menu.
Amongst the other recommended top restaurants to visit this year (2016) is the Sofra London, and the Alancha, neither of which i have had the pleasure of eating at YET. But they are on our list, whether we get the chance to tick them off this year, who know’s, but we are going to give it a really good try.
