I am writing this because I had to. The one and only Fine Dining Restaurant I should say in Istanbul, fantastic view, great atmosphere, georgious service, no word to define the rich tasting menu and wine pairing. Thanks to Chef&Owner Aylin Yazıcıoğlu and her team to share their knowledge, taste and experience with their guests.

After reading many reviews about Nicole, I was a bit concerned about our visit to Nicole. Since the building is at the same street with the Italian Consulate, it is for pedestrians only. However there are parking places above the street. Going there with taxi might be a better option. The restaurant checked us twice if we have any allergies... More

We booked our table due to the many good ratings of this place on TripAdvisor, and actually were looking forward to finally have been there. The location is not very easy to reach, however Tomtom Suites where this restaurant is located is a beautiful gem of a boutique hotel. The restaurant is decorated with great taste, the view of the...

Although Nicole is hard to find and a puzzle to your street navigating skills, it is a delightful restaurant in the terrace of a hotel facing the Italian Embassy, which makes access somewhat of a challenge due to security issues. Once at the top, the bar is comfortable and the drinks well poured. The menu has options but we found... More

First of all this restaurant serves international cuisine. Everything about it was amazing. The menu consists of 7 small plates, which are all simply divine. The only hiccup is its location. Cars are not allowed in the area as it is close to the dutch & italian embassy so you better have google maps ready as no one around knows... More

Many will never have an experience quite like this ever in life. It began with the silky sweet symphony of the popcorn amuse. From the very first bite that graced my lips giddiness and happy childhood memories flooded back to me. My first trip to the park. My mum pushing me on the swings, an overwhelming sense of comfort and... More

Upon reading about Nicole in several international publications, we decided to go. “We” is a group of very well-travelled friends, with a vast collection of Michelin star restaurant visits, in 3 continents. I rarely write about places from my home town, so here we go: Reservations were made about 10 days in advance & reconfirmed the day of. During the... More

Had a wonderful experience at this restaurant last week and now that I have arrived back to my European dwelling in Ireland, I will recommend this venue. Food was great and so was the service. If your ever in Istanbul please check out this place.

Neighbourhood Profile
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 nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
