We were there with a group of friends. The views right on the shore of bosphorus were just marvelous. Strait-facing facade is fully glass so you can easily enjoy the views.

Beautiful restaurant by Bosphorus Strait. There is a displace of fresh fishes on ice by the entrance, but pricey! Good food, nice wine list and very professional service. Beautiful view of of Bosphorus bridge, the Asia side of Istanbul.

It's very expensive and the food wasn't enough the waiters were nice but they were starting at us while we're eating which is creepy and uncomfortable too I would not recommend this restaurant for people with budget.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
