Excellent View with Good Food

The view is magnificent from this restaurant, even when sitting inside. The food is very good. The restaurant decor feels a bit dated.

Lovely view. Quality dishes. But not consistent with respect to food quality with some visits getting touring cuts of meat. Overall highly recommended

Easily one of the better restaurants I have been to in Istanbul in recent years – that said, this Harbiye branch, located within the Lütfi Kırdar Convention and Exhibition Center, is very much a classic, having been on the Istanbul fine dining scene for a while. Tastefully decorated to appeal to business people (and politicians from what I hear) rather... More

It is not common to find good food in convention centres but Boğaziçi Borsa is an exception. My favourites are lamb shank, keshkek and chocolate souffle. Worth a visit if you are attending a conference in Lütfi Kirdar Convention Centre.

Horrible atmosphere. Bad and slow service. Very expensive for the food served. I can't believe the people writing about the view in here because the only thing you see here is the cold steel construction. There are many restaurants serving much better food in much better atmosphere for much lower price. Nothing is special about this place.

This restaurant has always served very good food and has not changed it quality over the years. We went there with friends few weeks ago and was surprised how good the food was. Also the tables are spaced apart so you can talk and the noise levels are low. The service is excellent, and the prices are reasonable. If you... More

you will be amazad with the food and service at this restaurant, one is at city center another one is located at kandilli which has an amazing view of the bosphorus and the building itself is worth seeing as well as it is a historical palace

A local recommended this place to me. It is in the convention center by the Hilton. Atmosphere is ok. Food is great. The grilled calamari was the best I ever had. Also the grilled lamb was out off the chart good. Reasonably priced and very high quality local cooking. I will go back.

Was eaten here 2 yesrs ago. Find this time has not much the improvement. Good veiw, food, price and service is ok, but not the best restaurant in Istanbul. Not easy to find the first time, but this time we knew it is next to Hilton hotel, at the convention center.
