With a lovely view of the city and the Bosphorus (in the distance), it's a really nice place for dinner. The mezze (appetizers) were very good, especially the rolled grape leaf dolma. I had one of my favorite dishes, Iskender Kebab, and it did not disappoint. Service was good. We really enjoyed our dinner.

Anyone visiting Istanbul and hoping to sample good Turkish food must try this Borsa restaurant. The other Borsa is on the Anatolian side of the Bosporus, not as easily reached. This one is in a building where there is a major auditorium. Everything we tried was very well made - true Turkish food with no pretense but lots of flavor.... More

The service and the food here are quite average. Feels a bit like a spacious fast-food place. We went here because it is closely located to CRR

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

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.
