Here for our honeymoon we were told this was the king of them all. It was worth all the hype and we were very happy with everything. It is only for those who want the entire experience. There is no short cuts on anything and be prepared for a long stay. This is your entire nights plan. There service is obviously world class, as it needs to be at a place like this. The tastes and flavors are out of this world. Worth everything!

I can't really say we disliked anything. It was an exceptional experience from the time we entered till the time we departed. The food was amazing, beautiful, delicious. The service was attentive, personal and professional. Our server was also very knowledgeable about the wine list. We engaged him on many aspects of the wine and he was always able to answer and explain without hesitation. The view is of course wonderful here as well. Highly recommend it!

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

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 .....
