Perfect service, excellent food, wine suggestion ( Local ) . Will be back for sure. My 8 yr old had a few food restrictions and they went out of their way to please her. She was delighted, especially with the desert !!!

We ike the restaraunt. The fish was fresh, the service is good. It is pricy, but the prices are reasonable for the quality and the view at the Bosphorus. The restaraunt is at the top of the Hotel and is difficult to locate.

is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at

historically significant area, it’s currently one of
