We had a lovely lunch after viewing the gallery.
Very modern and stylish - swedish modern feel.
Great outlook onto the Bosporus.

The food was a lovely modern take on turkish flavours.
great quality and priced very reasonably for the quality of meal experienced.

“one of the best in Istanbul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

the menu is a fusion of turkish cuisine. The starters and the food are delicious! Do not forget to try the pear desert but most importantly the best coctail on earth: Isvahan!

“Fantastic Restaurant with Wonderful View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

We visited Muzedechanga last Thursday as big Peter Gordon fans. Whilst the restaurant wasn't full, we loved the charming atmosphere, gorgeous views and unusual food. Cocktails to die for too. Highly recommend.

“Fusion cuisine that works!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

I decided to go to this restaurant based on a recommendation in the Wallpaper* Istanbul city guide. I was slightly concerned as, from experience, some of the recommendations in that publication emphasise form over substance.

I needn't have worried.

The restaurant is situated in a glass cube attached to the museum, which overlooks really lovely gardens and, of course, the Bosphorus. The interior of the restaurant is also particularly impressive (by Autoban) with a heavy emphasis on retro/Danish furnishings and lamps.

The food was just as good as the view. Although I was a little disappointed that a tasting menu/degustation option wasn't available (as it is at Changa), you can create one of these yourself with the entree/starters (albeit at considerable expense). Extremely accomplished interpretations of Turkish classics, such as sucuk, abound.

Well worth the (lengthy) trip up the Bosphorus.
