We tried their self produced wine İt was really good. The foods where also delicious. It is located in of the oldest parts of the city. Right under Galata Tower. The price was reasonable. It is worth trying there

We came here after Christmas dinner for wine and dessert and had a good time. Sensus offers a good selection of Turkish wines by the glass and bottle. We had the cherry crumble for dessert and it was delicious. The service was very friendly.

Popped in for a glass of wine and was not disappointed. Very lively restaurant/bar/wine&cheese shop - an unusual combination that seems to work! Live music on a Saturday night - a pretty good rendition of Amy Winehouse in a jazzy groove... Later some evocative music...with Turkish lyrics. Had a lovely glass of Turkish white wine at the bar (see picture on details) - and the selection of wine you can buy seems to be quite extensive. Didn’t sit down for dinner this time around - but the dining guests seemed to be having a great time! Recommend for wine lovers who want to try something new/local.More

Great Turkish wines. Really good service and a fantastic atmosphere - cosy yet contemporary. Try the cheese! Loved this place. Good value too.

This is my go-to place in Istanbul since my very first visit in 2014. I love wine and really miss having a nice glass in addition to a nice meal. Wine is not exactly the most popular beverage in Turkey, even though they have some...really good ones. They have a really decent wine list to offer and the food is delicious as well, even though the last time we went for drinks only (since at the restaurant nearby where we had dinner wine turned to vinegar, literally). Sadly, they didn't have my favorite Turkish wine but I was still able to find one to my liking. Service was really nice and friendly, I really enjoyed our evening there.More

We visited after enjoying an evening meal elsewhere and it was a nice experience. It being a cellar you may not fancy a visit during the day but it’s lovely at night. The wines were nice and not too badly priced, we didn’t try the...food but it seemed to be going down well and smelled delicious. You can get bottles to take away too. It is right by the Galata tower under Agamemnon hotel so can be found if you look out for it.More

You can find different wines from all over Turkey. If you are in Istanbul come to Galata tower and taste a glass of Turkish fine wine in Sensus Wine and Cheese Boutique. Lovely and moderate prices
