The service is decent and the view is extraordinary but be warned: Leb-i Derya is an expensive place. Try it for a drink rather than dinner if you're travelling on a budget.

Food is good, not outstanding for the price. The view is great with modern, funky decor. Staff weren't very friendly! Pricey but great view over the city.

The view is stunning and worth a visit alone. The real kicker is the Negroni, which is a must try. Food is excellent and service very good. Dont miss this place.

A little difficult to find, but once you've made the effort well-worthwhile (note, it's on the top-floor, take the elevator up, walk down!) -- great views from the bar across the Bosphorus & Golden Horn -- menu is innovative and service very good.

Make sure you got the right adress! It is kind of an adventure finding the way up the stairs and after that the elevator. Lovely view and good food.

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
