We ate here on our last night. We kept the best for last. I had the Sea Bass on a bed of mashed potatoes. It was the best meal. Melted in your mouth and the potatoes added to the flavor of the fish. The chocolate...More

We had been told about this little gem of a restaurant and how difficult it was too find, but worth the effort. Well it certainly was worth it!! Take the lift to the 6th floor and before your very eyes you experience the best views...More

My husband and I were staying nearby and decided to walk the uphill/downhill climb off of Istiklal Street. (Even the walk through the crowded street and alley way was a fun experience.) I found the place online so wasn't sure what to expect. I will...More

Besides the great view we had a superb meal. The marinated beef salad as a starter was excellent and I highly recommend the Bosphorus kebab and to finish the Chocolate soufflé with lavender ice-cream. It is not cheap but well worth it. It was a...More

Excellent food and location....spectacular.....service good to start but then inattentive, once we had our main course we were left to our own devices! We sat at the bar to have cocktails...our waiter had no idea where we were, or was not bothered.

Not to be confused with the other restaurants of the same name this place sits of the upper-most floor and roof of a narrow residential apartment block on the upper part of the slope from Beyoglu down to the Bosporus. The actual dining area is...More

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
