We had a great last night in Istanbul at this restaurant. Despite it raining, the view was lovely as was the food. It was expensive but only given we had entree, main, shared dessert, wine and a cocktail. All fabulous. Dumplings entree was a hit. Highly recommend for a fun night.

Amazing food and great views. This place has the best of it all - food, views, service and ambiance. Located in Ortokoy - we always go back to this restaurant for a fun dinner before a night out to the hippest clubs just below - Zuma & Angelique.
