The restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel staff that made other very good recommendations but this was an unfortunate one.. The ambience if nice and the views are great. It does not have a rooftop terrace, its a lovely dining room with huge windows that give on to the Bosphorus. However the all of the plates we tried... More

I had visited Topaz 4 years ago and i was very please with the food and the environment. I visited Topaz once more two days ago and I believe that this place has become better. The view is really nice (not as good as at some rooftops but still very good), the interior although that it is the same as... More

Our guest advisor at Rixos Pera recommended this restaurant for my fiancé's birthday, the service was very great and the view outstanding but and it's a small but.. We don't drink alcohol and most of the dishes were made with wine sauces so we did not have much choice but the starters were delicious and fresh and the lamb was... More

Ideal combination of fine dining and amazing view of the Asian side of Bosphorus.. A genuine jewel of delicious food along with excellent service! I am proud that this kind of Michelin star quality restaurants exist now in Istanbul. The Turkish fusion menu adresses not only to foreign visitors but also to locals to try amazing tastes. My respectful regards... More

Decided to visit the Dolmabache Palace, which turned out to be closed (I was the idiot who didn't check the guidebook!), but this misfortune meant we had time for a leisurely lunch and the nearby Topaz restaurant had been recommended by fellow travellers at our hotel. Expecting Turkish rustic, we actually walked into an immaculate fine dining experience. Topaz is... More

My wife and I found the view stunning. The service was attentive and friendly. The food was great. We went for the degustation menu so we can try more dishes. We both favoured the modern menu over the ottoman but both were very good. If you are not taking a taxi or worked out which bus to take, and planning... More

Wonderful food, wonderful view. A modern revisiting of the ottoman cuisine. It could have five stars, but maybe a bit too expensive, particularly the wine
