Attraction details
Owner description: Reina, with its opening 17th January 2002, has achieved its ambition, by becoming one of the most prestigious entertainment venues not only in Turkey but also on the globe. Having taken over the most elite restaurant brands, Reina has continued its success within the entertainment sector and has been the perfect host to domestic and international quests alike. Famous across the borders, is Reina not only famous as an entertainment venue but also has become a tourist hotspot as well as a meeting point for international statesmen, a location where businessmen sign agreements worth billions of dollars and where world stars enjoy their meals and the entertainment. Having a drink at the Reina is indeed a very special pleasure since the view to Europe on one side and to Asia on the other side is truly unique. Add to this the silhouette of Istanbul with its historical buildings and its magnificent bridge, and you have the perfect skyline. Since the day it opened, Reina has become a valuable part of the Su Entertainment Group, improving quality and increasing its success every year.

Great location but the staff are snobby and not at all friendly or helpful. The place is mostly a high class pick up joint for what the Turkish call "Natasha's"................high class working girls. The drinks were reasonably priced and the cocktails are very nice.

Extremely disappointed. Had a dinner at their fish restaurant and first of all, their staff is really rude and second very very overpriced for an average food. Also crowd was very casual, plenty of people around as if they just came from beach. Music can't be worse, it was a cheese feast. Such a shame for something could well be the best place to visit for food and entertainment due to location. Never again

“I really enjoyed it”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

I spend a part of my summer in Turkey every year and wanted to go to Reina since last year. Me and my friends finally ended up going this summer.

There seems to be a lot of people complaining about not being let it- but let's be honest, this a extremely nice place In a nice and wealthy area so it's harder to get in. You should dress up really nice, look really nice, and expect to spend a lot of money here. If that's not what you want then you should most likely go somewhere else!

I suggest coming here though, I had a wonderful time!

Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

We were there with some friends from work, and we enjoy a lot not only with the dinner, but also with the outstanding service, and a great atmosphere on the disco area.
You must know that is an expensive place, but different from others because its location.

“Istanbul only mistake: Reina”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

Istanbul is definetely a great place to visit of you came around, friends, business, family or even solo. But unfortunately, Reina should just be recognized by its views and not its staff or something else. The place has whats wrong with de world: it only cares for status and play by its own rules. It's a place for who wants to show off and, sadly, enjoy an empty night full of expensive things that does not even what the club offers.
The host n the security r specialy agressive n extremely rude. Summaring: u deserv better!
