Honestly it is a shame for this restaurant to hide behind the beauty of Bosphorus and get confused between the cuisines that they offer. They should simply convert the restaurant into a Turkish Kebab House which would be more inline with the service and might add taste for a cuisine that they would concentrate to perfect instead of trying to...

This is the venue local people normally choose for their weddings. The mezze offerings are excellent – from savory to spicy, sweet to succulent, a round trip tasting of Euro-Anatolian delights that stays in your memory. The wine selection includes many quality Turkish varieties that are difficult to get abroad. Sitting right next to the Bosporus in this refurbished colonial... More

Next to ortakoy mosque, on the Bosphorus with breathtaking view Service poor. I ordered a cabernet sauvignon and got a sahvignon blanc. Our appetizers were left ten minutes at the bar (before our eyes) before being served. Appetizers were great, the meat tasteless, dessert okay. When i asked to add 60 TL ($20) tip to our 540 bill, the waiter... More

Nice local food, friendly and attentive service. But....when it came the time to have breakfast there, OMG what was that. In a long time I haven't had such... More

Upon suggest of the staff, when we were there a few days ago, we booked a table 2 days before to get a nice table on the waterfront. 10 mintutes before we left our hotel, someone called us (allegedly to...

This is a very classy restaurant right on the shore of the Bosphorus. You pass through some official buildings and a lovely fountained plaza to get to the restaurant itself. It is housed in a tented facility on a veranda, the waters of the Bosphorus lapping at its edge. Don't let 'tented' discourage you, the interior is truly elegant, the... More

Its location on the Bosphorous, facing the Bosphorous bridge is amazing especially at night. The place is elegant with professional staff and free wifi. Food is above average. We were invited, but it is well known of being expensive.

We went for dinner with two friends, having been here in Istanbul for a few days! It was just about the very worst food I have ever eaten in Istanbul over the last 25 years or so that we've been coming here! Starters were bland, deffinitely bought in pre packed and assembled. We are in a country where the vegetables... More

Choice of the food is very good. It was part of the conference and could accommodate a large number. Ambiance is excellent.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighborhood Profile
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighborhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
