This is THE restaurant that I recommend all my foreign friends to visit in Istanbul. The level of attention and care given to the quality of the ingredients, the preparations and the service is world class. The consistency has dramatically improved once the restaurant moved to a pre-fix menu from a la carte. It deserves to be in top restaurant... More

We enjoyed a unforgettable dining experience in the heart of Istanbul, above all the activity in quiet hotel building with great views. All the plates were excellent, the wine perfect and the service outstanding, The brothers of Can Rocca come her to enjoy also, so that is a secret. The chef cook is an artist and very nice too.

From cosy cocktails in the bar - served with canapés - to the petits fours, this was a delectable 7-course Degustation menu. One would pay at least £140 per head to eat like this in the UK as opposed to the £40/£50 per head it cost to dine at Nicole. The food, the service and the view were simply superb.... More

I am writing this because I had to. The one and only Fine Dining Restaurant I should say in Istanbul, fantastic view, great atmosphere, georgious service, no word to define the rich tasting menu and wine pairing. Thanks to Chef&Owner Aylin Yazıcıoğlu and her team to share their knowledge, taste and experience with their guests.

Neighbourhood Profile
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 nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
