Brasserie di Dante, which is located in the cozy Arnavutköy neighborhood, is the first place that comes to my mind when I want to make a quick and comfortable plan. The welcoming atmosphere at Brasserie Di Dante never fails to impress me. The Aya Strati Taksiarhi Greek Orthodox Church in front of the place, as well as the mosque at the beginning of the street, reminds me of how cosmopolitan Istanbul is.
When you enter Brasserie di Dante, you’re greeted by an outdoor seating area surrounded by plants and trees. There is also indoor seating, but I always prefer to sit outside and enjoy the street vibe. Even in cold weather, they have fire pits and heaters. With its reasonable prices, it is my first choice for a relaxing and enjoyable evening with my friends.
The menu at Brasserie di Dante has a tasty combination of international classics like salads, burgers, pizza, and pasta. Depending on my mood, I usually order a Dante Burger with beer or a cheese plate with red wine. I can confidently say that their diverse menu options will satisfy you on every plate. If you’re in the mood for a cocktail, I highly recommend margaritas. It’s worth noting that they don’t serve coffee after 6 p.m.
If you’re planning a day on the Bebek – Arnavukköy route and if you’re looking for a relaxing lunch or dinner, Brasserie di Dante is a good alternative that never fails. Check out their Instagram account for more.
