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.

“A disappointing place.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

Its a pitty. It remind me the worst years of my youth.
People who looked over your shoulder, and were quite nasty and unpolite.
Specially in the entrance where a bunch of bodyguards played to be God deciding who entered or not into the place. The were very nasty with many people, and we were lucky probably because we were foreigners.
Once inside it, it was a very fashion place but I dont know if the place is adressed to very fancy and rich people because they made us feel quite bad due to the way they behave pr act So we took ourselves and our money and we went to spend it to other place where we really enjoyed and had fun.

“The high point of my visit to Istanbul.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014

Visited on a sunday evening and the place was near packed despite it being a dry day until midnight. Had a very nice meal that came with fab service and view. Yes it is pricey but every penny worth it. the music and life picked up once the bar opened and the place rocked. Made up for my disappointing visit to 360 a day earlier. Will certainly visit again if I happen to visit istanbul.

“Over rated!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!
