We were a family of seven and we had a wonderful lunch at this restaurant. The food was delicious and the service was amazing. Our waiter Sinan was exceptional. A must try in Istanbul!

The restaurant has many floors, and the top one offers a beautiful view. The food is good and with good variety. They also have beer, even if it is not the best. The service is absolutely outstanding.

Excellent location and food to match, kebab is the best but turkish thin based pizza is also delicious. Try to get a table near the windows for better views.

Hamdi Restaurant should be part of Istanbul city sightseeing! Food, service and view are exceptional. Please make sure to make a reservation over the phone for a table on the terrace, next to window. If you do not reserve, you will not get it, and...it worth!More
