Take the Nicole menu and enjoy the vine pairing. It is heavenly! Make sure not to get drung from all the 7 types of vines they serve! :). In terms of price, dinner for 2 adults (2 Nicole menus and 2 vine pairing +a starter drink) = TL 800

This was far and away the best restaurant we visited on our trip. Michellin star cooking, professional and friendly service, sophisticated atmosphere and a good view. Very hard to find any faults at all. We had the smaller tasting menu with turkish wine pairing and everything was fabulous. Thoroughly recommended.

Dear Siyami K. Thank you for sharing your views about us. We very much cherish all the feedback from our visitors, better still when we are shown our shortcomings and mistakes. Yet we unfortunately could not find any clue about how we could improve ourself in your review. At Nicole the price of the long degustation menu is 175tl/65 USD/... More

Wow this restaurant is stunning! It is located on the top floor of Tomtom suites & has a magical view of Topkapi Palace, Golden Horn, Hagia Sophia & the ever busy Bosphorus straits. Our table was in the corner in front of the open kitchen, a glass wall separates you from the kitchen so you can watch all the action... More

Went to Nicole this month with my wife after my parents recommended it to me. Unfortunately, my wife couldn't eat any dairy during this trip, so her experience might not have been as good as mine, but the food served to me was quite good. The fresh fish (last dish that was served) was definately the best one. However, even... More

This swanky modern restaurant is in the designer Tomtom Suites Hotel. The designer ambiance is just right with great furniture, art and lighting. The menu offers a choice of a smaller and larger degustation with or without matched wines. We took the challenge of the full degustation with matched Turkish wines and we were not disappointed. The chefs are hitting... More

Not very easy to find at first. Very good food and service. Excellent vine selection, all originating from Turkey. Discrete and friendly service. We celebrate a birthday and got best table and little birthday candles - just enough to make it all special without being ostentatious.

We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary with dinner at Nicole recently, rounding off a trip to Athens, Santorini and Istanbul from Singapore. Having virtually no prior recommendation nor any contact in Istanbul, I spent considerable time blindly poring through the over 11,000 (what an amazing number!!) restaurants which abound in this mega city. With the help of Trip Advisor reviews,... More

Although we found the restaurant difficult to find on foot, we were not disappointed when we arrived. We found ourselves at the Chef's table with superb views of Istanbul skyline. From amuse bouche to desert there no complaints. We chose the accompanying wines and the Sommelier gave an outstanding summary of his selections. Excellent service all round contributed to a...
