Gourmet Restaurant Paired with Art Museum!

Attached to the Sakıp Sabancı Museum, overlooking the Bosphorus, is an incredible restaurant experience. Chatting with the owners was a special treat, but eating the food was an equal delight!

Started as a high standard gourmet place in Taksim years ago, however turned to usual street cafe in terms of value due to lack of innovation, mismanagement and big turnover in staff. Totally frustrated with the arrongant - " wheather to take or not " approach of the owner and pay 350 TL for a lunch for two which we... More

We went to Muzedechanga with our 3 year old child. The waiter was very hasty and when we asked if they had something for small children, the waiter said roughly no the menu is the menu nothing more. The food on the menu was not suited for a 3 year old child. There was no Kalahari, pasta or potatoes. This... More

Using ingredients from all over the world, this restaurant produces modern interpretations of classic Turkish dishes. Within walking distance from Taksim Square. I enjoyed it and if you have the time, it is worth the visit.

This place is definitely a good restaurant. The fusion food is great, but I'm sure you can find as good elsewhere, without all the fancy and posh pretention around it, and definitely less expensive.

This place is a bit far away maybe if you are just for the weekend in Istnabul, but it is worth combining a visit to Sabanci Museum in Emirgan with this excellent restaurant. Especially in summer it is good being outside, overlooking the Bosphorus (although you are not that close to it, with road and the park/garden of th mansion... More

The restaurant is located in the green gardens of the Sakip Sabanci Museum in Emirgan and has a excellent close-by view of the Bosporus. We were there in the winter so the terrace was closed. It is housed in an old mansion though the interior is modern, with a lot of glass and dark colors and on the first floor... More

One of the best restaurants I have went. Maybe the location in Istanbul just hard to get it, but if you follow the street and road name you can easily get in. Everything was great: Service, Food, Deserts, Decoration. Expensive but worth to try.

We had a 7:30 booking (to beat the crowds arriving at8:00). The restaurant ground floor was empty when we arrived and we were excited to see the big glass floor looking on to the kitchen below. However, despite this floor being empty, we were shown to the stairs, up past the empty second floor, to a third floor where there... More
