Excellent views

The restaurant is situated on the top floor of the Arcadian Blue Hotel and has excellent views of the Blue Mosque and the Marmara Sea. The décor is ordinary but the view makes up for it with full length windows right across the front. The night I was there they had live music as in traditional... read more

Roof top restaurant is the perfect setting for a leisurely lunch, dinner, or bottle of rose with mezza's. View is spectacular. I go every time I am in Istanbul and it never disappoints.

Agreeing with other reviewers about the view is done without hesitation. The views from this roof top restaurant-day or night-are amazing and unforgettable. Unfortunately the food is quite forgettable. The wine list comes on a plastic card. There are a number of choices but only one red and one white is sold by the glass. Since I was dining alone...

We chose this restaurant because of it's location next to the Blue Mosque and overlooking the city and Strait. It was relatively small and intimate - so romantic. The food and drinks were delicious; the service was impeccable and friendly. As sunset the views towards the illuminated Blue Mosque were amazing. When the call to prayer started, I thought I...

Food and beverage choice is limited. Food is ok, but not more. Not expensive. The panoramic view, englobing Blue Masque, Ayasofya and the Marmara Sea is outstanding!!

If you wish to have the best view over the Blue Mosque and the Marble sea at the entrance to the Bosphorus, this is it. Food is excellent, the service and attention attentive and caring. The evening setting is perfect and romantic and will provide excellent photo opportunities.

We were a group of 6 occupying 3 rooms for a week. We found this hotel to be in an excellent location with all the historic sights in walking distance. Staff were fantastic from the front desk to housekeeping, dining, front of house, and breakfast room staff. The breakfast was excellent and set us off nicely each day. The rooms... More

The view is what you come here for but I also found the food to be pretty good as well. What let's this place down is the service, which is a real shame. Our service was slow and unfriendly and, even when it began to rain on us a bit, no one offered any help. But if you want to... More

We booked a table at the Terrace Restaurant as we wanted to take in the view at sunset. This was beautiful however the food was not good at all. Chicken was dry and I think it was because it had been heated in a microwave which was in view of diners. Service wasn't the best either, we had to go... More
