The food is good but the most notable thing about this restaurant is its setting. I definitely would recommend this place.

The views from this restaurant are magical and the food is of a very high standard. It's expensive, but for the views and quality it is worth the extravagance. Push for a good table, near the front of the restaurant.

Had a terrific dining and bar experience at Sunset. Decided to splurge a little on a recent trip to Istanbul. Will go there again if I have the opportunity to return to Istanbul. In the meantime, i highly recommend trying it for yourself.
Tip - Order one of the local dishes. I had an incredible tasting veal dish. Outstanding.

This Istanbul hot spot is recommended by many but disappointed a first time visitor. The view is awesome and the decor is OK although fraying at the edges. The food was downright terrible. I won't go into detail more than to say, lack of freshness, chain like production, spices killing the produce... and it is very pricey. Service is attentive if a bit spotty. the bar has a nice vibe and nice cocktails. Thanks but no thanks
