What else someone could ask.... A perfect view of the Bosporus from one side and of the Ayia Sofia/Blue Musk from the other.. Excellent food... Perfect sweets... Nice wine selection.. and good company :) We have visited the restaurant last Saturday and fortunately it was not full. We decided to sit outside despite the little cold temperature. But even for that they had planned some warm blankets (!)... The service very professional and fast. In general I would call it a modern Turkish restaurant and this fits perfectly with the name and the place is located.. Istanbul Modern Museum. I highly recommend the Kazan Dipi and the cream brulee with masticha for ending such a marvelous dinner. It is a little bit expensive, but compared to other restaurants in Istanbul, it deserves it..

After a walk through the exposition, the terrace is the perfect place to enjoy lunch. A very varied and extensive menu give you lots of options.

This was a great experience. We're vegetarian and there were plenty of choices on the menu (each of us had something different, and all were fantastic). The staff were attentive with a great sense of humour, and the view over the Bosphorus is unsurpassed. Highly recommended.

Nice view, pricy but good international food. End nicely a museum visit. The cruise boats can mask the view. Other restaurants can give you as a nice view for more reasonnable price. Excellent service even toward a solo traveler which was appreciated. Nothing more to add.

Great place to have a glass of wine and watch the boats go past. Is often busy. Best bit of the museum.
