All about the Ambience)

Layers, everything is about layers. I could clearly taste every different layers of the fragrance of the food they served. It is more expensive than normal restaurants but it is worth it. This is kinda high class so suits are recommended. For myself I spent 63 GBP there but trust me, it is worth it!

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

We weren't sure what to expect at Topaz, but it all was perfectly clear when the taxi drew up to the curb and we took a look at the exterior. This is an international, modern, expense account place that provides a secure and comforting environment for well-heeled guests from all over. The sort of place that has big tables with... More

When you arrive to the restaurant, you wonder if you made the good choice. It is locating in a building, no external signs ... But once you see the evening view on the bridge, with europe on the left and Asia on the right, you're stunned. And the degustation menu with wine (I recommend) is worth the price (although not...

We when with a small group of friends to Topaz on Sunday night, 6/28/15, our last night in Istanbul. Our reservation was for 8:45, at sunset to honor Ramadan. The place has a jaw-dropping, amazing view of the Bosphorous. The service was delightful, attentive and unobtrusive, with all staff members speaking English (we're the ugly Americans who know precious little... More

We had a dinner last week at Topaz. Maybe it's ramadan nowadays, almost all of the tables were full of people who were breaking their fast, most waiters were busy with them and "iftar" meals, so we had to wait for quite long even just to see the menu! We ordered tasting menu with wine. The menu seemed wonderful. There... More

We made a reservation for a family event for 14 people. I had already been to Topaz before, so I was aware of the food quality and the amazing view of the Bosphorus (by the way you should prefer noon. The view is even better). However I did not expect such a wonderful service. All my guests were very pleased... More

Went for dinner with my fiancee whilst on holiday in Istanbul and had a good meal at Topaz. The dining room is elegantly decorated and romantic and there are bay windows overlooking the Bosphorus. Service was very attentive and our glasses were never left empty for long. Had lovely vine leaves in a tasty sauce to start, followed by duck... More

Had a nice dinner here, the food was very good and the views were amazing. Make reservations ahead and ask for a table by the window, come right before dusk to watch the city and the mosque get lit up. Beautiful setting....wish they had a terrace outdoors but otherwise perfect. The chocolate dessert w ginger is excellent as is the... More

Very good food, not that expansive, with a superb view of the city. It is important booking in advance to guarantee the best table with the best view.

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.
