Our dinner in this restaurant was memorable. I recommend booking ahead to get a table with view to the Bosphorus. The place is stunning, the menu is super interesting and they served you like if you were a sultan. The prices are bit higher than most restaurants in Turkey but totally worth every penny.

No doubt one of the highlights of our trip to Istanbul. Great food, amazing ambience - very romantic setting. Brilliant views over the Bosphorus. The service is just fantastic - waiters are very attentive, make you feel like royalty. The chicken topkapi main was 👌🏽and we had the chocolate pudding for dessert. Highly recommend. Decent price for what you're experiencing.

I have been meaning to write my review for sometime, not only to tell you what a wonderful experience I had, but to recognise all the people that work hard to make it memorable for you, most of all Goksel. If you want to experience rich Ottoman cuisine and experience the luxuries of the Sultans then visiting Tugra will offer... More

This place is really something very special and romantic. Went here with my wife to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Was a great dining experience, loved the classical Turkish music, loved the setting of the place and the ornate Turkish columns overlooking the water.

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.
