This must be the best restaurant on the Bosphorus! The views are spectacular and the proximity to the bridge and lights amazing! Great attention to detail from the staff. Food was wonderful and plentiful! Highly recommended!

I attend a private event where the cocktail took place in the palace and then the dinner on the Bosphorus shore. The destination is great and the food ok. Service was good. Alone the view in the evening is worth a visit

Beautiful views of the Bosphorus and Ortakoy mosque, especially at night. Food was delicious and plentiful. I've not given it a 5 rating because the lighting in the restaurant could be improved. The lighting is so dim that in order to read the menu they had to provide a small torch that clipped onto it.

Went with a large group of colleagues and friends for a mezze style Turkish dinner. It was fantastic with each plate excellently prepared with fresh ingredients. The location is beautiful beside the Bosporus with nice gardens and elegant facilities even if a little tricky to find the entrance. Prices were not cheap but still good value for the overall quality... More

Went there for a business lunch and I was really impressed with the architecture of the restaurant totally at the level of the impressive view, facing the Asian side. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Highly recommended!

This restaurant by the Bosphorus sits atop the water with a stunning view, particularly at night, of the first bridge and the recently restored Ortaköy Mosque. The room is ample, with well spaced tables, but not overly elegant. The food ranges from sushi to Italian and Turkish-continental. Ample choices but faulty preparation. My spinach salad was inedible because it had... More

They never pay attention, never came to take the order. When they finally did, brought something we didn't order.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
