Great place

The food was delicious, the view of the Bosphorus was marvelous, ambiance is great for couples or business, staff was friendly. The lentil soup is a must. To cut it short... Recommended restaurant.

The location is perfect for a nice dinner with the stunning view of the Bosphorus, and at klinik time it could be even better. Make sure you will get a table at the window. The wine was excellent, I can't say the same for the starters (we couldn't see any of the many excellent Turkish meze) and desserts. The mains... More

I visited with a group of 9 friends. We were not dissapointed. The taster menu was simply delicious each course washed down with some equally nice wine. The view of the Bosphorus from the restaurant is lovely, especially at night when the bridge is all lit up. For this standard of food & wine it was a bargain at £55.... More

Very good restaurant. Service was very good. The views really amazing (try booking by window). We went late on a Sunday eve so the place was not full. The food was quite tasty and well presented. All my friends liked their dishes. Will go again.

An excellent restaurant, centrally located with very good views over the city and straits. The service was attentive but not obtrusive and the food memorable. Well worth a visit.

We had both degustation menus and the food was amazing. The service was perfect. Obviously the views are astonishing.It's an expensive restaurant (450 TL for two people, even though degustation menu is obviously more expensive) but in my opinion worth it.

Make sure you get good directions as our taxi driver had difficulty finding it even though it was only 5 minutes from the hotel.Sorry to say we were a little disappointed with the restaurant. We had been at the Intercontinental bar the night before which has much better views. The staff were a bit offhand and not very attentive and... More

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.
