“Great 'new cuisine'”
Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

The food is great (don't miss the fish soup). But the view of the Bosfuros is nothing but amazing! Try to combine an end of the day visit to the museum, then continue with the restaurant.

“A great museum restaurant, must see in İstanbul.”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Istanbul Modern is the first and most visited museum on modern Turkish art in Istanbul. Besides itf permanent collection, it accomodates carıous exhibitions from many different countries and cultures.
İt is a "must see" when in İstanbul. İt is perfectly seated in the heart of İstanbul right on Bosphorus.
The restaurant is perfect place to dine after a tour of the museum. İt's view of the Bosphorus, Marmara Sea, Golden Horn and the Old City is unique. The food is good quality and value for money.
Do visit!

My wife and I had lunch at the modern designed restaurant. The staff is very friendly, the food very good and the view a big bonus. The place is very popular and we understand why.
