    Very good service, nice view. Live music, very good ambiance. But the food was not tastefully. I would recommend you just to do a drink. It is very expensive and if the food was good it would be worth it for sure!

    Good food, very attentive service, outstanding premises with a wonderful view. Good idea to have live entertainment- perhaps the singing was slightly over-loud.

    All the food we tasted was great. The view of the Bosphorus and the city was incredible. The only downside was that the terrace with the best view was a smoking area, and because of the open windows for ventilation, it was a bit cold. The staff were polite and helpful. Prices are reasonable depending on the quality and the environment. We will definitely go again.
