“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

So lovely! Its breathtaking at night when the lights off the bridge and city play against the water, and there are several really great places to eat there. Try 'House Cafe'.

“Amazing - must be seen!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

When come to Istanbul you just must see it! The best view is from Camlica Tepe- you can have a full view on Golden Horn. It is really fantastic to see the sun lights dancing on the Bosforus and making this Golden Horn ilusion :)

“still renovating”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

the surroundings are recently renovated, always very attractive to stroll around. not touristic but if you are accompanied by a local you may want to stop by for a tea or coffee.
