Home cooking hardly gets any better…


This locale used to house a Swiss beerhouse at the beginning of the century named Helvetia. Its current owners came across this name during renovations and they decided to keep it. Helvetia serves traditional Turkish dishes, all made on site in their open kitchen. The menu changes daily so just walk to the counter and order what looks appetizing to you. We especially recommend their Pazı Borani (steamed Swiss chard with yogurt), Mercimek Köftesi (lentil balls) and their Sunday morning breakfast.

Open for lunch and dinner.
