Great Restaurant!

I went here with my boyfriend for his birthday. There is a sweeping view of the city and the food is excellent. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Istanbul!

Incredible view and incredible price. Even for a "European style" restaurant in istambul. And since the food is just normal you pay for the view. The service is fair.

Such a nice place to eat! The food in Istanbul generally is great but the night my husband and I went to Topaz stood out. The views are incredible, the staff are attentive and the food is clever and creative. We both had the degustation menu which offered 7 courses of deliciousness; seriously, every new course was better than the... More

It was the first time eating Turkish cuisine and what a delightful place to start! Topaz's staff were attentive and very hospitable. I had sour cherries with vine leaves which was excellent, I also sampled my friends dishes which were of an equally high standard. Wines were lovely once we settled on one which complimented our dishes.

They have a great view of bosphorus together with elegant ottoman cuisine.. Try everything in small dishes.. You should dine there.

We booked here after reading great reviews for the restaurant. We had a table one back from the window but still had a magnificent view of the Bosphorous and the lights from the Asian side of the water. I had beef tenderloin which was cooked as ordered and was delicious. My husband had the baby lamb (think it was loin... More

In a city where good, cheap food can be found on every street, Topaz stands out. Definitely in the higher end of the Fine Dining category. Not cheap by Turkish standards, but great value compared to other European cities. I had stuffed vine leaves in cherry compote, followed by sea bass. My wife had the artichoke soup and the sea...

My expectations were high based on glowing TA reviews but the place didn't live up to it. The view indeed is good, but there are better. Food was fancy looking and expensive but very mediocre. Not to the point you would send it back but I would not send my friends to this place. Service was impeccable and the ambience... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
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 nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
