“A room with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Stunning night views over the river, ever changing lights on the bridge - the were the background to equally stunning food and wine. Service could have been more attentive to begin with but overall fantastic place for fine European dining

“Excellent top end meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

We had the degustation 6 course meal each 145 tl without wine 225 tl with. Excellent meal with wine to accompany. Not cheap by local standards but great value by international standards. Fantastic view of bophorus and lovely ambience with music. Romantic and stylish.

“Amazing Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

We visited this restaurant on our last evening in Istanbul, we nearly didn't go in as there were a number of Turkish Men shouting at us from the pavement the night before to come in which was unnecessary and cheapened the feel of the restaurant.

It was our wedding anniversary and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant has a superb view out over the Bospherous and it is literally breath taking! You watch people coming back from the toilets walking into things as they are mesmerised!

The waiters are very attentive and give you plenty of time to chose, it feels like a really high class restaurant without being pretentious. They serve your every need, even bringing me a blanket when I felt a little cold. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the service and would have been happy to stay for a few drinks afterwards but the restaurant was closing. The restaurant and toilets were spotless and the toilets even have some really nice added extras such as handcream and sanitary products. It is a little more expensive than the other restaurants we tried but you don't mind paying for good quality. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in Istanbul.

“Amazing Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

Overall AMAZING food and had both degustation menu's, the Ottoman traditional and Modern innovative. Abit pricey but worth it! With a great view and great service. A restaurant to definitely visit again. Highly recommended!

“Good food, but a tad pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

The food here is excellent. We got the degustion menu and it was AMAZING, although the food was good the prices were a little high. This little place is on the bosphorus and it was right down the street from our hotel (CVK park bosphorus), which was a plus. The degustion menu (with wine) for one person was an astounding amount of 215 TL for ONE person. But the food compensated for its price, the food was the best i have ever tasted. The other downside was that there were no tables for two near the window and only groups could dine near the magnificent view.
