Views, yes, but more too

The rooftop view speaks for itself, simply stunning. But the operation was very well run, which resulted in excellent service. They seem to have the classic service staff hierarchy of captain, server, bus, etc, which really helps to ensure smooth efficient service. I had a roof top corner seat... read more

I went there two times. First time during the night and second time during the day. I couldn't tell which time I liked the beautiful view more. Special thanks to Barış and other guys working there.

Do heed the recommendation made by the staff especially to try the sea bass dish. Fresh from the sea and the service there is good!

We got quickly a good table, and were served rapidly, but the food was terribly tasteless and not worth a penny. Sorry to say that, but it seems as they have those fantastic views they don't care much about the food quality.... It s like eating a paella on las ramblas if you know what I mean...

Any choice is a fresh catch. The catch is local from the Mediterranean Sea, Marmmara Sea, or the Black Sea. The view is great, overlooking the Bosphorus, sitting between the Blue Masque and the Aja Sophia. Service is on overload, as many waitstaff are assigned to help eat table. Never a dirty plate on the table.

My partner and I had a delicious dinner at this restaurant. He had the swordfish skewers, which were wonderful, and I let myself be talked into the sea bass. I was originally going to have snapper, but that was sold as a whole fish, not a fillet, so I said I'd go with the sea bass, which was a fillet.... More

It is perhaps a little odd that I'm reviewing this restaurant as I went there 4 times last week and never ate a morsel! While holidaying in Istanbul it was suggested we might visit this rooftop restaurant to enjoy a quiet drink and admire the views. That we did, repeatedly. The staff were wonderfully friendly and accommodating and never pressured... More

I've eaten here many times. The food is good, especially the fish. The roof top has the best view in Istanbul- go at sunset. The waiters are kind and helpful. Thanks to Barış and Serdal for a great dining experience!

this restaurant was recommended by my local friends. it is an absolutely touristic restaurant with good food but the view is breathtaking. one should visit only for the view. it is on the top floor of a hotel and from there you can see agia sofia and the blue mosque and Bosporus from above. it is absolutely beautiful. make sure...

The restaurant offers one of the best views of the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and much, much more. A perfect place to se the sunset (the food is not the best, but it is worth it for the view :-)
