Time your visit with the sunset—and the evening call to prayer. That’s when young locals file in for cocktails, like fresh-ginger–and–muddled-lime mojitos, and jockey for steel stools on the open-air terrace overlooking the city’s two coastlines and the Bosporus strait in between.

Amazing place, amazing view, special food (turkish mezze, black sea bass and 40 spices beef). Perfect to relax and chill watching the ferries and the sunset.

In an area that provides stunning views, this one was not as good as other restaurants and bars that I have been too. Food was ok, but once again there are much better options in this area.

I agree with everyone here that the entrance does the place no justice at all. If it wasn't for reading reviews on trip advisor I would never have contemplated entering... however food and service was fantastic. Had a very nice evening there and would thoroughly...More

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
