This restaurant, in the TomTom Suites Hotel near Istanbul's famous Istiklal Cadessi, is one of Istanbul's few french-type "fine dining" restaurants that really measures up food-wise. We loved the multi-course meal with the pairing of Turkish wines. The prices are fair for the quality of...More

What a delightful restaurant. They only serve a degustation menu but portions are small. This is top level fine dining at its best. If in France this place would have two or three Michelin stars. The service is impeccable and the view is magnificent. There...More

I have been here after a year and half and the quality is unchanged (while many other restaurants have lost some shots). Everything was fantastic, dishes sublimly presented, incredible tastes and combination and impeccable service. No a la carte menu, only degustation menu.

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

I don't recall any a la carte options offered, but I'd call and ask if they would be willing to accommodate you. The servings of any one dish would not be sufficient to stand as a full entree. Maybe if you propose a... More
