Nice restaurant with a very good view. We will certainly come back. Food is ok, not too big, but tasty. We loved the atmosphere, music, lights, Bosphorus during the night.

Their "manti" is unexpectedly tasty. Not too big, nor too small; perfect size and thin pasta with the right consistency. Nice view over the historic peninsula.

The view from the restaurant at the Modern really is amazing. However the service and the food was just terrible. One of our appitizers (heart of artichoke) was actually off. Another appitizer was so bland and simple it is a disgrace that they charged 30TL for such a dish. The mains were also completely uninspiring, overpriced.

My advice would be to go for a drink or a coffee, but avoid the food. It just isn't worth it.

Bland, boring food. Rude service. Overpriced. I'm not really sure a view of the Bosphorus is worth it. From what I hear, there are plenty of other nice views in this city that will actually serve you a decent meal for what we paid here. But if it is really is only a nice view you're most concerned about when it comes to a dining experience - and you're not interested in good food, or wait staff that cares that you're there - then by all means. It is a nice view, for sure.

We had this one recommended from a chat with fellow guest at our hotel.
Tricky to find but it is inside the Istanbul Modern museum.
We had a light lunch at the bar. Food was full of great flavours.
