Tapas / Small Plates Restaurants in Istanbul

Eating tapas or finger food when you are out is the best way to mingle with people. Standing up or sitting down around a bar, ordering everything to the middle, you can chit chat with people around you and sip your cocktail slowly.

Unfortunately there are not that many tapas places in Istanbul. There are very good few ones in the trendier neighborhoods of Istanbul -such as Asmalimescit and Bebek-; but this is no Barcelona. A near local version of Tapas is "meze" houses or local traditional kebab and fish restaurants; where you can still order everything to the middle and enjoy a lively wine - raki - meze trio.

Below is a list of best tapas and meze places where you can enjoy cocktails and wine accompanied by little bites.
