Marvellous view of the Bosphorus, excelent service, but the dishes too small. Four (4) raviolis in a plate is a joke , and the price of 150.

great place for happy hour, but also good food and wine. We ate there in our first night in Istanbul and everything was perfect, the dim light, the music, the beautiful view of the Bosforo. The food is prepared and presented properly, I had an artichoke I will not forget, and the waiters were very attentive to make sure we... More

The view and service at Topaz were great, however we were not impressed with the food. It seemed very overpriced for the quality and portions. Risotto was okay, and my husband's kebab wasn't memorable.

Among the best restaurants I've visited! It is expensive, indeed, but it worths it. Not like other restaurants where you pay a tone of money and they don't worth a peny. Great food, service, atmosphere and the view..... speechless! Well done!

We thoroughly enjoyed the interesting and well presented Ottoman degustation menu, five courses of which were paired with excellent Turkish wines. The expert service and gorgeous ambience were themselves a perfect match for the cuisine, but the VIEW up and across the Bosphorus was even more exceptional. Topaz is by no means cheap at close to £100 per person (including... More

The view really is amazing, even on a grey December evening. Perched on the side of a hill, with outdoor seating for warmer months it looks across the Golden Horn with one of the best restaurant views I have ever seen. Staff were all friendly and service was efficient. Food was good, with the fish and vegetables particularly good, and... More
