While visiting Istanbul I came to this fantastic place in the Iconic Ciragan Palace Hotel, it is located on the European shore of the Bosporus.It is a magnificent place and the Grill has a delicious menu, wine list, and a relaxed yet sophisticated vibe.

What joy .the setting overlooking the outside park with the adjoining Bosporus,covered in snow,magic. Service very attentive. Food great.. Ambience although alone,just perfect. Would recommend any time

The famous Sunday brunch at Kenpinski Ciragan Palace. Huge selection of food and complimentary Bloody Marys. Nice touch! The Chockolate Room was especially impressive. Take your time and try not to overdo...

Visited the grill buffet in mid-August. The hotel blows you away; it is an institution not only in Istanbul but globally. The setting of the restaurant is also breathtaking with the Bosporus and bridge views. There was nothing fundamentally wrong with the food, however comparing to similar hotels of such status we were not blown away. There was nothing memorable... More

Great setting right on the Bosphorous. Large buffet. Surf and turf delight. Prawns, fish, lamb, beef, kebabs etc all freshly prepared to your liking and beautifully presented. Plenty of choice of foods including desserts and fresh fruit. After 3 rounds it was time to loosen the belt and enjoy a few cups of Turkish Coffee. Expensive but a great treat.

We were there for lunch, light menu consisting of appetizers and salads. The food was first class. The service, provided by young employees, impeccable. The ambience very relaxed, the room was full of light, the service very attentive when the sun bothered one of us.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
