Why locals love it

The French writer and poet Alphonse de Lamartine once said: “If I had to take a look at the world for the last time, I would look at Istanbul from Çamlıca". Desde is a café perfectly located at the peak of Çamlıca. Locals come here to smoke water pipes and enjoy tasty cuisine.

Why you should visit it

You won’t get a better view of Istanbul unless you go on a helicopter tour. The prices are above average, but the view is totally worth it. The best time to visit is just before sunset. Don’t forget to bring your camera!

Special tip

They don’t serve alcohol.
