“Such a great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

a minimal, chic decoration enchanced by floor to ceiling bosphorus view from a very different angle. once you've seated you think you own the bridge & ıstanbul. All service people speak fluent english and they are attentive.We had risotto, octopus, rib, fener fish and all are at the best level. Perfect for romantic night out. Music is varied perfectly.Definitely deserves it's fame

“Expensive but excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

An expensive restaurant with a beautiful view reached after an alarmingly precarious taxi ride up steep & narrow roads.. The service, food and wine were all excellent. Would certainly recommend for a special meal out in Istanbul.

“Spectacular in every aspect!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Our concierge at the Ritz Carlton recommended this restaurant and what a gem it was!! The entire staff was friendly, kind and attentive! The food was absolutely fabulous!!! The cost......we both had an appetizer, shared a Risotto (white truffle) and each had an entree and we had a bottle of wine. Tip included was approximately $250.00 U.S.

We truly could not have been more happier with any aspect of this restaurant. The view is to die for, the ambiance was exquisite and the staff were superb. Saying the food was excellent is an understatement!!!

If you are in Istanbul you must go to this restaurant!! We travel the world and it truly is in the top for best restaurants for us!! We can honestly say we have absolutely NO complaints!!!

To be honest, if we weren't here for only 3 nights, we would be returning for another delightful evening!!

Happy Eating!!!

“Excellent view and cool ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

We stumbled across this restaurant on our first night in Istanbul as we were staying in a hotel nearby. Without knowing what to expect, we were blown away by the view of the Bosphorous upon arrival. We had arrived late but the restaurant still gave us a table without booking at approx 10.30pm. Quite a fancy place, smart dress ideally required, service was good, nice wine. Ideally after a more Turkish meal, the al la carte options were limited, but still thouroughly enjoyed the meal. The best thing about this restaurant is the view and the ambience.

“One of the nicest in Istanbul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Topaz is one of my most favourite restaurants in Istanbul! It is very well located with a great view of the Bosphorus and away from noise. It is especially beautiful at night when the Bosphorus bridge is lit up. Quite a romantic setting though there are always many business people dining there. The menu is very satisfying and the wine list is excellent! I love the staff and their attitude. Always smiling, always kind with perfectly spoken English :)
