delightful food, amazing view

The degustation menu was fab. Celebrated my wife's birthday dinner and it was exceptionally well. Although we did not get the window table, the view was still superb overlooking the water. Definitely a great night out for first time travellers to Istanbul.

The best seafood risotto of my life so far. All the food was good. However, the night was spoiled by that kind of issues that make you get online to write a ****warning*** for other people review. We asked for the taxi stationed outside who I could clearly see was acquainted with the valet. Asked to be taken to Reina... More

No complains at all about the food but we got ripped off royally by taxi arranged by the restaurant to take us back to the hotel. It should have cost about 15 (the fare from the hotel) but he asked 33. Then claimed after I paid that I had not paid enough. Then claimed he could not accept "worn" bills.... More

For a fine dining this was a pretty poor restaurant. The view is really good but the food was not good at all. The view raised the rating to a 2, just rating the food it would be 1. We took the 7 course tasting menu with wine and it was a big disappointment. The only dishes that was worth... More

Fine dining...not so much. Maybe once upon a time but definitely not now.... We had the degustation menu (modern) and most of it was rather boring and/or tasteless without any presentation from the waiter what so ever... Don't even get me started on the bread.... Not even homebaked, dry and with no butter or anything. If you want fine dining... More

Traveled to Istanbul from USA on business. Went for dinner with co-workers and had a great time. The restaurant sat on hillside with river views. Menu selection was good with good wine selection and full bar. Food had Italian influence but had some local options too. Food was expertly prepared and looked and tasted great (lamb kebabs were great). All-in-all... More

We had the modern degustation - each course was better than the last, and I think I have never eaten a better meal - my yardstick is the Savoy Grill, but this surpassed it in inventiveness of menu and the service was great. Faultless. And, since we didn't have wine, came in at £46 each. Outstanding. A must visit in... More

Topaz was a recommendation from a business colleague. As you enter the restaurant your eyes are drawn to the view looking over the Bosporus. At night, with a clear sky, the view is fantastic with the brightly lit boats always providing something to watch. Yet again the Turkish staff are so kind and helpful. Combined with great wine and food... More
