My wife and I dined there on our first night in Istanbul and were surprised to find that both the food and the service matched the restaurant design and fantastic view across the Bosphorus.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

The views are simply stunning and watching the bridge fade with the light and then come alive again with its lighting is magical. We were worried as we did not have a window seat but as we were sat at the front of the raised area to the back the view was just as good and you could people watch as well - perfect. We both had the degustation menu with wine (210TL about £70) but one had the modern and one the Ottoman. They were both outstanding and the wines well matched. We are lucky enough to have eaten at many Michelin Restaurants around the world and, of its type, this food was easily on a par with the best and that's before the view! The staff were at tentative and knowledgeable - it was a perfect evening. We ate at Raika and Ulus 29 on the trip but this was the clear winner. Beware taxis sometimes find it difficult to locate.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

My daughter and I visited Topaz on our first night in Istanbul -- a great choice! The view of the Bosphorus is magnificent, and the good is excellent as well. Try the wedding soup and the lamb.
