Description: The Tria Elegance Terrace Restaurant offers three delights in one place. It is the feast of taste with authentic Turkish cuisine, grilled kebabs, and fresh fish... It is the feast for the eyes with the panoramic views of the Bosporus, the Blue Mosque, and the Hagia Sophia... It is the feast of style... Admiring the Bosporus from the restaurant terrace, you will enjoy the taste of fish, caught in the early morning, grilled squid, and mussels under cheese crust... There are many savoury, light, and tasty hors d'oeuvre, in addition to fresh salads seasoned with fragrant olive oil and pomegranate sauce. Delicious dishes with the best Turkish wines will enliven any conversation. The harmony of taste and vision reigns in the Tria Elegance Terrace Restaurant. Kebabs cooked on live fire are served here, and the views of the Bosporus, the Blue Mosque, and the Hagia Sophia are for afters! In addition to being a place with excellent cuisine, Tria Elegance Terrace Restaurant is a sight of Istanbul. Spectacular views of the Sea of Marmara open from its terrace. You will see fishing boats, which dashed about here 200-300 years ago as well, and luxurious cruise liners. One can look at the Bosporus strait incessantly... At last, you will feel the taste of Istanbul. The Tria Elegance Terrace Restaurant accepts orders for group lunches and dinners for up to 60 people, and invites to celebrate wedding and birthday parties, enjoying the Turrkish cuisine and the Bosporus views.

“romantic views of the bosphorus...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

we decided to have dinner at this roof-top terrace restaurant to mark the end of our trip to turkey. our travel agent who made the recommendation helped us make reservations on a busy night during the end of ramadan.

i would agree with another post that the actual entrance to the restaurant can be a bit tricky. however, we were enchanted upon arrival to the roof-top. the views of the city were beautiful, and our travel agent had snagged us a table at the "window" for even better sights of the bosphorus.

our waiter was very professional and knowledgeable of the menu choices. he made great recommendations which was exactly what we wanted: anything not kebab. the meze appetizer was both a sight to behold and a taste for the senses, however we were a bit disappointed by our dinner (fish) choices.

in summary: incredible views, courteous staff, and above-average food

“Good restaurant in a beautiful setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

Went after reading the reviews. It's slightly difficult to find but in a cool part of Istanbul. Sat outside on the roof with a view of the river. Service was excellent food was good but not great and I thought it was a good value. For four people we had two bottles of wine and dessert and it was about 50 tl a piece or about 28usd. Not sure it's the 7th best restaurant in Istanbul but it was a nice experience

“Visit following high rating on Trip Advisor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

At the time of our research ahead of the visit this restaurant was No.1 in Istanbul. Hence our visit on our first night. A warm welcome, pleasant and courteous staff. The food was quite good but some parts had gone cold. We had quite a wait for the food. So with such excellent previous ratings we were disappointed and did not feel that the restaurant deserved it's high rating during our visit.

“Magnificent View, Delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

Too bad my friend and I checked in this restaurant on the last night of our stay in the city. I was intrigued by the high ratings and traveler photos posted, and decided we should it try it for dinner. It was too dark to appreciate the magnificent view over the Bosporus. Our host was the manager "Hussein" who was a pleasant company to our dinner. We exchanged interesting conversations with him about culture, history and politics. We ordered the meze sampler and chocolate souffle. Every single item was prepared to perfection.
We lamented the fact we didn't come here earlier and promised ourselves a visit when we are next in town. Don't miss on this place, it's worth a try. I can imagine how beautiful the view would be at sunset.

“Roof top terrace with great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

Wish we had returned. We went here on our first night in Istanbul and it was the best food we ate during our trip. The setting is perfect - cool and breezy on the roof top (bring a jacket this time of year) and food was tasty, fresh and intersting. We tried the Teste kebab and the Adana Kebab-very sopicy and delicious. The red wine we drank was the best we had all trip
