The views from this place of Istanbul are amazing and beautiful, we used the railway to get here and it was a great experience, then my boyfriend and I drank a turkish coffee at a restaurant at the top of this hill, you can take a walk around this area and you will see plenty of interesting places

Don't miss out on Aziyade Restaurant named after the famous book of Pierre Loti a french author who fell in love with an Ottoman girl. We had the Mixed Grill and it was exquisite, the Yoruk Tandoori is nice for fat lovers, don't miss the deep fried phyllo pastry with pastrami and the stuffed meatballs, much more delicious than the...

This area is high above sea level. It has shops and cafes, one of them is right at the top of the cliff providing a stunning view of the city. There are a couple of telescopes you can use for one Turkish lira. The place is one that shouldn't be missed.

It is worth taking the lift to the top floor terrace (the downstairs restaurant is OK though) because the view is magnificent. Service is very slow (but the waitress was very nice) which can be a problem with small children. The food was standard Turkish restaurant fare. The terrace is NOT wheelchair accessible unlike the restaurant downstairs.

We ride on a cable car and brought us to the top of Pier Loti Cafe where you can enjoy a relaxing moment while sipping a very famous coffee and tea of Turkey. You will truly enjoy the 360 degree view of Bhosporus.

Lovely place to rest for awhile and have a traditional tea enjoying the amazing view from another point of the city. The place is overcrowded with tourists and make it difficult to find a table.
