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.

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.
