Perfect view, elegant setting, impeccable service. The menu could use a broader variety. Dishes were well prepared and presented. Artichoke truffled soup delicious, the simplest dish meat and meatballs in yogurt was paradisiac and the Antep pistachi and cream desert the best i have had in my almost one year in Turkey. Well done @foodpasha

Although having a fabulous view of the Bosphorus and a classy atmosphere, and I have maybe eaten there 50 times on business, it is a restaurant for the business elite and to impress guests but is not to my personal taste when wanting a pleasant night out. There are many more superior upmarket restaurants offering much more and with better... More

Set on a hilltop, this amazing resteraunt offers fantastic panoramic views of Istanbul. Gourmet cuisine, on the more expensive side, with small portions, but certainly worth a treat. Not an extensive menu but enough choices to suit most people. I had the cafe steak which was simply delicious. Perfect place for a quiet meal with superb ambience.

We chose this restaurant because of a friend's reccomendation.. It's a bit of a drive from the hotel but venue is located beautifully on the hill overviewing the city, quite something! View is amazing! (it's the only reason I gave it 2 rather than 1 star). It's not even the food which was decent, starters were very good tuna or... More

We went with a Friend for our 2 second dinner in Istanbul, as this place has been recommended a lot. The view is great, but the rest was sadly a let down, our waiter hardly could speak English, when my Friend ordered 2 starters he told him it's too much, my Friend said but I want to starters he told...

My husband still raves about your duck dish with pancakes, 2 months after we visited! the food was succulent, with very authentic yet completely redefined turkish dishes. We had no expectations coming in, and the menu was full of options we would not have normally gone for. We followed the waiter's recommendations and were not disappointed! It was a great,... More

The Food is always good i always have a fillet and their infamous french fries with porcini oil and parmesan taste. Service is very good and helpful. I like their music a lot. In summer time outdoors is fantastic and the scenery is so nice..

Staying in Besiktas

Neighborhood Profile
Besiktas
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighborhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
