We really enjoyed our meal at this restaurant, it was well presented and very tasty, view from roof terrace was great. The only downside was the waiters were not very observant, you had to beckon them if you needed anything, but this would not stop us eating here again the next time we visit Istanbul.

Although we didn't have a reservation and we arrived slightly earlier than the first dinner seating time, the staff was welcoming and made available a nice table with a good view over the Bosphorus. The service was excellent, the food was fresh and delicious, served immaculately and the view was refreshing. The prices are affordable and definitely worth the experience.

Wined and dined here with family (includes one year old) for dinner. Food was amazing, good wine selections (Turkish), and very attentive, professional staff. This is (yet another) hotel rooftop, but the ambience here was a touch above the others we had visited in Istanbul. The view, although not the best, is still spectacular.

We just dined at Imbat. Late lunch on the terrace with its stunning views. The reception is welcoming and the service friendly, maybe too friendly with too much chatter. The food is fresh and clean, the fish cooked perfectly, not over done, though it was simply grilled. Salads were tasty, with some interesting Ottoman touches. Small wine list of Turkish... More

Went for a very late lunch and shared a range of dishes from the menu - mixed meze, lentil soup, and a few others. All beautiful, really tasty, and very attentive service. The terrace is a superb spot for a meal, with great views over the Bosphorus. Didnñt come out too expensive either, including beer and wine. Would definitely go... More

I don't know how to express in words the greatness of food and the excellence of service we received at Imbat... but in our week holiday in Istanbul this restaurant was surely the top restaurant providing not only the best cuisine but also an excellent service. We don't want to forget to give our big thanks and appreciation to the... More

Firstly, people should know that this restaurant caters to tourists. This has its pluses and its minuses. In my (limited) experience, eating in Istanbul was a bit tricky as a woman, as the waiters were apt to address my husband far more so than me. If I paid for the meal they looked a bit surprised when I was the... More

We came here for dinner on our last night in Istanbul following other comments here on TA. The restaurant is on the top floor of the Orient Hotel and has amazing views over the Bosphorus and the Beygolu district of Istanbul but also a side view of the Topkapi Palace. The staff were friendly, polite and attentive and all spoke... More

This is a hidden treasure. I found out that even my friends who live in Istanbul did not know this place. Situated at a terrace with magnificent views over the Bosphorus and Golden Horn, the chef offers a rich selection of freshly prepared examples of less known but amazing examples of classical Turkish cooking, mostly from the Aegean region. Amazing.... More

Very nice and tasty meal with a pretty good view of the Bosphorous and Galata Tower. The lamb shoulder is the best main. The rose ice cream is fresh and fragrant. Waiters are very attentive and friendly.
