Since this restaurant is part of the reina location, it gives you a great option to finish your dinner and be part of the club, so if you are planning for the club book a late dinner so you get the lively feel of reina, the food is your usual kosebasi

Atmosphere & Location: a very trendy place located at the side of the bosphorus with a gorgeous view. You can even come to the restaurant by boat/yacht. Reina has four sections: kosebasi, a fish restaurant, a sushi place and in the middle is the bar & lounge area. We sat in the kosebasi and then continued for drinks in the... More

Went there for dinner and it is a big place with different restaurants on the Bosphorus. It feels like a very trendy place. Reminded me of Kudeta in Bali. We went early arriving from London and left early during Ramadan so I guess we did not really see the place at his best. We had dinner in the kebab restaurant... More

I recently went here with my wife whilst on holiday in Istanbul. The restaurant wasn't particularly near our hotel so we got an Uber, which was pretty good! We'd read a few reviews prior to booking and went armed with the info. That info is vital. When you order, no matter what you ask for they will ask if you... More

Went here with officemates after a long workshop day- Great views of the Bosphorus and the bridge. We splurged on a nice appetizer platters and all sorts of Kebabs and fish... Great Turkish wine.. We were eight (8) so the hefty bill was reasonable after we split it.. A great experience- will be back when in Istanbul!

Never in my life i have been treated this bad while spending 200+ euros. We knew that Reina was upscale so dressed appropriately we expected the staff to be a little rough reading earlier reviews but this was really the worst.

We stayed in the hotel attached to this restaurant and had two dinners here. There was a very good selection of Turkish food and wine. A few reviews have talked about being ripped off by being given bread and cheese and then being charged for it. This is true, but both are delicious and what they charge you for it... More

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
Besiktas
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
