Fabulous food with great Istanbul view

Unbelieveable taste, best dinner I have ever had in Istanbul.This is a must try! The food was absolutely amazing and the atmosphere was buzzing with energy and culture with Istanbul view. The chef Turgay is gracious and cheerful as a child. Meaningful, spirited conversations with him. Thank you... read more

Like sitting at home. Chef has a warm personality and he's a very talented cook. We let him bring us a plate of small tastings. To die for. White anchovies, smoked salmon, stuffed zucchini. I could go on. There are a lot of regulars here too and all characters. Thoroughly enjoyed on many fronts. A memorable night.

I recently had the pleasure to visit the restaurant again last week and I can safely certify and solemnly swear that dining here is an experience than no one... More

I came in accidentally, decided to stay. The owner decided to give us a few courses of his favorites and we were not disappointed in the least. Very hospitable and polite as well! His cat Sofie is very cute. And Russell Crowe are there too :)

We found this restourant because surrounding hotels suggest that they could have open roof terrance in mid March. The food, view, service, wine was fanstactic! ... only you should love cats, because there were many cats on the terrace

I discovered this italian restaurant in Instagram and I decided to start to start start messaging with Turgay, its chef and owner. After two weeks I had the opportunity to visit it during my stay in Istanbul and I have to admit that it has been one of my biggest good surprises when I had dinner there. The restaurant is... More

the restaurant was on top of a building in front of our hotel. So we went there 2 times for dinner. Really good food. Small place. The owner was also the chef and a character. Great place and evening. Not cheap for Turkish prices but we had a good time and we were on holidays so....

My fiancé and I arrived in Istanbul last night and, having had a very Turkish lunch today, we fancied Italian for dinner. We found this place via TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. In fact, it completely exceeded our expectations. The restaurant is easily missable from the outside, but once inside (and up quite a few flights of stairs) we were... More

We had a wonderful dinner here! The owner/chef was incredibly friendly and simply loves to feed people. None of us were planning to order soup, but he brought some to sample (a full bowl) and it was incredible. All of our dishes were excellent and the personal service continued with a bruschetta topping to try on the bread that we... More
