on a hill over the bosphorus it has a perfect view of the bridge. It is a very formal and elegant restaurant with waiters all over you. And given the fact that everyone wants to be close to the window you end up sitting too close to other tables while the rest of the restaurant stays empty. The food is... More

I consider myself lucky that on my short visit to Istanbul, that we ate here overlooking the Bosphorus. Service was superb, food and wine was fresh and delicious. We got here a little late but it was still great and no hint of rushing us. The view at night of the Box hours was beautiful and iconic. Try this place,... More

We were lucky to get a table towards the end with the best view of the bridge. Wonderful ambience, excellent service, great food, fantastic/reasonable prices! We had the mezze platter and their popular lamb chops. Both great. And the baklava was probably the best we've ever had!

Apart from the gun fire coming from the military academy next door (a little unnerving at first) - this is a nice place to sit and admire the views From a food standpoint, the calamar were over salted though the lamb was very tender and nicely cooked - perhaps I was a bit harsh with my score because if the...

Fantastic restaurant - you have to go at night to get the view across the bosphorous. All the bridges are lit up and it is stunning. Be sure to ask for a window seat. Lovely food too. Definitely will be back.

Is the third time when we come here and as usual everything was perfect: food, atmosphere and view. A perfect place to end a day.

Staying in Uskudar

Neighborhood Profile
Uskudar
Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s most densely populated neighborhoods. Once a Greek colony, later a haven for people from across the Mediterranean and the Middle East, this gateway to Asia has been an active and diverse hub for eons. Still, visitors to Uskudar are often more overcome by its myriad treasures than by its many thousand residents. And with fairytale settings such as the “Maiden’s Tower” as well as grand examples of Ottoman Era architecture, plenty of parks, a gorgeous and lengthy coastline, and some of Turkey’s holiest sites, there’s no end to the sightseeing possibilities. Easily reached from the city’s European shores via a steady network of ferries, time spent in Uskudar reveals a “real life” Istanbul that many who experience find extremely fascinating.
