Improve this listing
Opened our doors in late June 2017, Mürver stands out for its kitchen where different fire cooking methods including live open fire and smoking are used. Its menu includes seasonal ingredients purchased from local Anatolian producers, more specifically, wood-oven cooked or wood-grilled dishes, slowly cooked BBQ dishes, smoked dishes, sustainable seafood, handmade dried and rested meat, Turkish spicy sujuks, and sausages, as well as many other dishes and mezes – which will also win the hearts of vegetarians. Mürver Restaurant is appealing to foodies from all ages with its different lunch and dinner options. But it has more to offer; it is also perfect for business meals, group meals, and celebrations.

This is my new favorite restaurant in Istanbul. It has it all- gorgeous water front views, vibrant ambiance, and, most importantly, truly spectacular food and wine. If you aren’t there for the waterfront views, to get a seat at the coveted chefs table to watch...More

Don’t be fooled by the aggressive internet campaign and bloggers paid to say murver is a Turkish delight. It is a pure Instagram scam offering poor service, mediocre food for exorbitant prices. Istanbul has so much more to offer. Don’t be like us. Just skip.

Fabulous dinner at Murver. Excellent wine selection. Attentive, knowledgeable wait staff. Lovely open floorplan where you can see the excellent kitchen orchestrations. Ask for a table near the balcony for the best view of the bosporous.

Don't miss, great food, a very wide selection of Turkish Wines. Spectacular view is a bonus. Every item on the menu is a must to try. If you go with friends consider sharing.

A great martini and wonderful wine were just the beginning of a marvelous meal. And the view (enhanced by a full moon!) was unforgettable.

We went there for dinner while in Istanbul. I felt unwell after the starter and never really finished it. This can happen when one suffers from food allergies -what should not happen is lack of interest in your well being and customer satisfaction exhibited by...More

Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy
is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at
the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most
historically significant area, it’s currently one of
the most happening parts of town as well. Here street
vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks
of the Horn where the views of major attractions
across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions,
