If you really want to experience real high level Turkish cuisine look nowhere else, Borsa is the address. I go there since 1990 (although the restaurant is from 1928 I guess...) Borsa has never disappointed me even once. Highly recommended...

The gardens of the Istanbul Archaeological Museums are a little gem of peace, greenery, soft breezes amidst magnificent sculptures of all periods and within the backdrop of the Cinili Kosk pavillion and the main facade of late 19th century Museum building. Istanbul`s renowned Borsa restaurant is now running the gardens` cafeteria. Borsa is known for its excellent traditional Turkish cuisine... More

We asked our concierge to recommend a good Turkish restaurant and we were recommended Borsa. It was a bit surprising to be sent to a convention centre, but once inside, we were impressed by quite a formal, but large restaurant. Unfortunately, as it was dark, we did not have the benefit of the view. As it is very large and... More

The Hilton recommended this and we were not disappointed. We were not expecting it to be as fancy, with crisp white table clothes and the waiters in white jackets, and we were worried this was more style over substance, but it wasn't! We ordered the iskender, which came with the most delicious homemade yoghurt; the lamb shish which was very... More

The only drawback to this restaurant is that you must pay to get into the Museum of Modern Art to eat there. But the food was quite good and the desserts excellent. Service was quick and attentive. Definitely a good place for lunch during a visit along the river.

I really like Borsa Restaurant's menu and service. Their mezes are good, meat dishes like doner and tandir are particularly exceptional. However prices are really unreasonable. I would only eat there if I am attending a conference in the convention centre or seeing a concert next door.

The Bogazici Bprsa restaurant is very close to the city center and has a prime location faraway from noise and traffic. The sea view from the terrace is a must to see. It is basically an old school, Turkish traditional restaurant specialising in meat dishes albeit there are vegetarian dishes as well. If you like to try traditional dishes such... More

Being on a plant based diet sometimes is a challenge. The food here was out of this world....for all of us...meat, fish and veggie eaters. The service was top drawer and the Turkish wine was pretty good! Not much for atmosphere but we came for the food.
