I was staying at the hotel and had lunch there. The food is very good and good service. Prices are little higher than street restaurants but worth the service and the quality. The view is very nice. Highly recommend.

Excellent restaurant with fine service. We enjoyed two very relaxing meals here. The fish is excellent. A friend ordered the crepes and they looked wonderful. Over all, reasonable for what you get - which is very upscale - and they don't rush you at all!

Ideally located in the center of the Historical Peninsula of Istanbul by the Sea of Marmara and right at the shore lane. It is 10 minutes walking distance to Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque and also it is 15 minutes walking distance away from Covered Bazaar. The foundation of our food begins with the best ingredients. We partner with local food growers. Preparing the quality ingredients with respect and expertise gives our cuisine its regional flavor.
