Restaurant offers great pizza. Service is good but no one speaks English. Beer is not so cheap, small draft cost cca. 3€. View is amazing.

Excellent rooftop to spend the day (and/or night) with spectacular views over Istanbul. Blankets and heaters for cooler evenings. Food is fine but more of a drinking spot.
