One of the cosiest places I've ever visited. Loved the ambience and boho style. The energy and atmosphere were great. They had a DJ with great chill out music, loud enough, but not too loud. Food - variety of choices, not to traditional, unique style...More

5 Kat, meaning 5th floor, has a great view of Istanbul and the Bosphorus. The food is good but not exceptional. Don’t let the entrance fool you. It has great ambiance and friendly staff. Would recommend!

Best view. Very nice and polite staff. The food is also very good. I recommend you meat. It’s a unique place. It has its own style. The restaurant is located in a very central area. Few minutes walk from Taksim square.

First things first - 5. kat means 5th floor via a very small old fashioned lift. So if you are like me and a bit claustrophobic prepare yourself for a walk up .. which we were happy to do . We were shown very quickly...More

Description
The head spinning adventure of “5. Kat Restaurant” filled with art, taste and style began in 1993, in Beyoglu’s historic Cihangir neighborhood. Istanbul’s oldest civilian cultural center which has played host to many cultural events, concerts, talks and art workshops. Thus, its setting became probably the city’s most breathtaking one, reaching from Sarayburnu to the Bosporus. It took its name from the 5th floor of the building it’s in, Bilsak (science art institute ); Actress/Director Yasemin Alkaya is the founder and her passion for art is reflected on everything from the extraordinary fabric of the place to its yummylicious food and of course to its celebrity guest list.The first week of April, 2017, Sir Ian McKellen (Lord of the Rings) and his close friend Lord Michael Cashman dined at 5. Kat together with world famous director Volker Schlondorff. Oliver Laxe, Jo Sol, Gabe Klinger also enjoyed a beautiful night as well.5th Floor also made a name for itself with its unique parties.
