Who I am: A young professional looking for hotspots in Istanbul. We had planned to dine at Leb-i-derya; which was recommended to us by friends. Upon arrival we realized however, that all guests were international, which made the place seem little authentic. The vibe was...More

This top floor restaurant brings a lot of detailed attention...to the food messes hot and cold (large portions), the decor (relaxed posh bit upmarket), the friendliness and efficiency of the staff. View to kill though it was raining 2nd we visited but still no disappointment.

There are a handful of terraces that look out over the Bosporus just a stone's throw from the madness of Istiklal. Leb-i Derya is one of the more pricy ones, but the food is justifiably good, and the view simply cannot be beat. An assortment...More

Time your visit with the sunset—and the evening call to prayer. That’s when young locals file in for cocktails, like fresh-ginger–and–muddled-lime mojitos, and jockey for steel stools on the open-air terrace overlooking the city’s two coastlines and the Bosporus strait in between.

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
