Good Dinner!

We had an extremely good meal that was a wee bit more expensive than average, but then the view is worth paying for. Do book ahead to ensure you get a table at the front with a view up the Bosporus. Service was good.

The food here is extremely good, alongside a great view of the Harbor. Service was also top notch as you would expect from an upscale restuarant. It is a bit expensive but it's worth it. I would highly recommend this place.

Food was spectacular. View was excellent of the harbor. Definitely gotta be here for the sunset. Service was excellent as expected. Only gripe may be a little too much veal on the menu. Still found a dish I loved.

Food was good, it was fine dining so prices were high-as expected. Waiter wasn't very efficient or aware. It took him a while to bring us our menus, even though we were the only ones there. Perhaps the service is better in the evenings, but I would not label this restaurant as outstanding. There wasn't much choice on the menu... More

Service is excellent here. We also had the house wine and for the price it was very good. Salad, soup was good. Appetizer was mediocre, Chicken with Curry sauce main was ok. The waiters are extremely attentive and make sure your meal is enjoyable. The view is amazing. Worth a visit.

The food, the wine, the service, and the views were all tremendous. It was a bit expensive, but if you want to treat yourself, this is a good place to do it.

On the top floor of the hotel Orient Express: Impeccable. Small, intimate, with careful and loving attention by the waiters, very attentive to every detail, very willing and educated. The view of the bridges over the Bosphorus and Galata Tower is great and in summer the terrace attached to improve the view opens. The atmosphere is relaxed, with nice music.... More
