I had dinner in this restaurant in august 2014. It is an elegant and formal place, with an amazing view on Istanbul. Great food, excellent presentation, classy service! I miss Topaz!

We booked a last minute table at Topaz recently and weren't disappointed. We were given a table at the window overlooking the majestic harbour and as the sun went down the nearby mosque was brilliantly illuminated. The food was simply amazing, the starter i had (stuffed vine leaves) was one of the best I'd ever had and the steak was... More

You will enjoy the delicious food and excellent service, and you'll also love the great night views of the Bosphorus, the illuminated mosque, and the busy ferries. My friends liked their dinner there so much that they wanted to go back just two nights later: I'm so glad I was able to join them for the return. A memorable Istanbul... More

If you wanted a fine dining experience with excellent food and service, this is the place. To boot, they are located on a hillside with views overlooking the Bosphorus. It's hard to find a more ideal spot.

Excellent food and service.....good menu and amazing views of the Bosporus. Even at night. Make sure you book a table with a view. If a small group then the corner table is best. Menu diversity is good and the maître d' is good at recommending or customizing your order.....Reasonably priced.

Thank Ramzi A

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
