Nice roof top location to have a relaxed dinner with drinks, good music, a bit loud at time and a live band comes up closer to midnight when the place gets very noisy. food is amazing, service bit relaxed but courteous.

Frankie must be one of the best restaurants in the city, and surely a prime candidate for a Michelin star if Guide Michelin ever decides to start covering Turkey. I've been a few times now, and the food has always been excellent, the wines if...More

The menu includes many well known classy items, mostly from the international cuisine. There is live music after 10pm and smokers might enjoy its semi-open terrace. A good trendy place but nothing fascinating.
