Very disappointing

2 Posted on 05 / 30 / 2014

We visited Omar Cafe due to the reviews on Happy Cow... and we were very disappointed, because we found it to be a typical tourist rip off with low quality and overpriced food!

We asked to sit upstairs on the roof terrace to enjoy the great view on Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. The staff (friendly but pushy) allowed us only under the condition to eat something up there. So we did. The food we ordered was not tasty, organic or anything like that, but greasy and of minor quality. For this, the price was too high.

We did not return to Omar´s during our visit. I guess the vegan/ vegetarian place to be is by the Galata Tower where we found good place to eat.

Pros: great view, friendly staff
Cons: overpriced, low quality food, very touristic

We had only drinks and dit not get al look at the menu, but the roof terras was great. The view of the AyaSophia and the Blue Mosk are great end you sit very comfortably in benches with large pillows and it is all seaqled with glass and was warm in december (outside: +5).

Pros: Great view, Comfy seating
Cons: Have to walk 3 stairs

We went there for lunch, but could not sit on the top floor because they had a group reservation. So we went somewhere else. But in the evining we returned. They said again sorry, and now we could have the best table. On the top floor by the window. We had soup, cheese rolles, a pasta and a vegetable plate. All very nice.

Pros: Nice view on top floor, Good food., friendly staff

Understood vegan diet. Made me a vegetable and mushroom pide without cheese. Had a ezme and hummus with pitta bread to start. Went back the next day for drinks only and the opportunity to sit in the roof terrace restaurant with great views over the city.

Pros: Friendly staff, Tasty food, Great views from roof terrace
