This place has one of the best views in Istanbul but i would only advise you to visit the view and have drinks. The food, is bog-standard and over priced for what its worth. The service is quite poor aswell. It's a shame so much potential.

Amazing roof top terrace that makes you very forgiving of anything else. Home made tortellini was a winner. Kat 5 shashlik surprisingly disappointing. Wine list without vintages... But drinks and mezze and an amazing sunset makes it all worth while.

5. Kat has such a beautiful view, highly recommend going here for a drink. The food is ok but nothing special compared to other restaurants in Istanbul. Lovely staff too.

A really beautiful place with a incredible view of the river. The service is great, we net there to drink some beer at night and it was unforgetable. I was a little bit cold, but they are prepared with blanquets and heat. Great place to go with friends or your love one.

Thank ArgMar

Neighbourhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
