“Romance in Instabul, great view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

Myself and my husband came here for dinner for my 30th birthday a couple of nights ago. We had a couple of cocktails to begin, the discovery tasting menu which was beautiful. Very tasty and filling but not too much. We accompanied our dinner with a bottle of prosecco. The view we had was absolutely stunning and made it a very romantic setting as the sun set. The service was good. Would definitely recommend and would indeed go back

“Superb choice if you are in Pera district”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

Nicole occupies a roof terrace at the top of the Tomtom Suites hotel across from the entrance to the Italian consulate. A very peaceful area which is enhanced by the beautiful view which is even better if you catch the sunset.
There are only 3 tasting menu options and all can be paired with a wine selection - of course I went for the full 7 course Nicole choice paired with various Turkish wines from a very knowledgeable sommelier.
All I can say is that the whole evening was fabulous - you get much more than the seven courses with the freebies thrown in.
Yes - at around £100 a head it's expensive for Istanbul but well worth it in my opinion.
Be warned because if you have to walk back up to Istikilal street after dinner and you are not too sprightly or have drunk a bit too much then it's a steep climb .....

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

We visit Istanbul maybe four times per year and on tripadvisor recommendations visited Nicole.
What a treat ..we now never miss a visit to Nicole when we visit Istanbul. The food is the best that we have eaten in Turkey and on our second visit to Nicole we were treated as old friends by Aylin and Kaan. Please dont miss a treat like Nicole :)

“Nice food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

It is quite nice place for Istanbul gastronomi standard since food quality is over the average and the money that you will pay it deserves.
However, waiters are thinking that tasting menu is quite new for locals and they are trying to explain it with KISS formula...please consider that even locals could see some michelen level places abroad..
michelen discussion is still valid but they need to keep the pace for a long time to get it...
