Best view. Very nice and polite staff. The food is also very good. I recommend you meat. It’s a unique place. It has its own style. The restaurant is located in a very central area. Few minutes walk from Taksim square.

The view is absolutely stunning at night. The Cosmopolitan cocktail was delicious and the food (seafood) we ordered too. The staff, in particular Mehmet, is really helpful, smiling and professional. We would highly recommend it!

Description
The head spinning adventure of “5. Kat Restaurant” filled with art, taste and style began in 1993, in Beyoglu’s historic Cihangir neighborhood. Istanbul’s oldest civilian cultural center which has played host to many cultural events, concerts, talks and art workshops. Thus, its setting became probably the city’s most breathtaking one, reaching from Sarayburnu to the Bosporus. It took its name from the 5th floor of the building it’s in, Bilsak (science art institute ); Actress/Director Yasemin Alkaya is the founder and her passion for art is reflected on everything from the extraordinary fabric of the place to its yummylicious food and of course to its celebrity guest list.The first week of April, 2017, Sir Ian McKellen (Lord of the Rings) and his close friend Lord Michael Cashman dined at 5. Kat together with world famous director Volker Schlondorff. Oliver Laxe, Jo Sol, Gabe Klinger also enjoyed a beautiful night as well.5th Floor also made a name for itself with its unique parties.
