I went to this restaurant many times before and always had a great experience, so I decided to send an email in order to make a reservation for Valentine's day. They answered me that I have to spend 190 TL per person minimum and asked for a deposit... First time I hear a restaurant telling customers in advance to spend... More

This was a friendly place with a good selection of foods and good service. I was here for a work meeting and spent about 2 hours here. We had a good time and was happy overall. It tends to get a bit loud at times but its a restaurant so what can you say!

The food was great. I wanted to have a last typical food so I ordered the Sultan Kebap which was very good. The starters and the wine where also very good. The waiters were friendly and spoke good english.

I asked Concierge at the Four Seasons where we were staying if I was going to like this restaurant as much as everyone had told me I would, and they said 'absolutely'. They were right. We dined out for dinner over seven nights in Istanbul and this was my favourite restaurant. Everything works seamlessly here - the view, the service,... More

A very pleasant experience at Topaz. Great view, we opted for one of the set menus, very good food, and discreet attentive service. Only downside is that the entire party must order the same menu.

We had a wonderful dinner. The restaurant overlooks the Bosphorus, so best view also. Ate typical regional food and it was very well prepared. The service was excellent.

Exceptional Spot on service. Tasty food. We tried the Ottoman Menu made up of five diverse delicious courses and a thoughtful wine selection. Amazing views as well. Welcoming atmosphere and music. Highly recommended!!

The restaurant services good quality of food including Othmani dishes. The service is excellent as well. The location of the restaurant is unique. It is facing the Bosphorus which gives a panorama view. However, the restaurant is considered as an expensive one.

Great service, great location and fantastic food quality. Trying the Sultan kabab is a must as well as the lamp shoulder dish.

Neighborhood Profile
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.
