Why locals love it

It has amazing 270 degree Bosphorus view, affordable prices, and nice people. There is not much tourist even if it is located just in the center of Taksim, close to İstiklal street. They also have English menu so that you can easily taste their delicious food :)

Why you should visit it

It has a nice bar and around 40 tables both in the terrace and inside. You can smoke in the terrace and if it is cold they also host guests inside. They play music but not loud. Good for having an average dinner and cocktail.

Special tip

It is located in the top floor of an hotel, so you have to take the elevator to 7th floor. They are really busy between 7-10 pm.
