    Worth it for the view of the city. Good atmosphere and music. A bit on the pricy side. The menu isn't big, mostly vegetarian, but has fish. Best for the drinks though, preferably in a good company.

    Obviously you visit this place for the stunning view of the Bosporus straight. The staff is very service minded. The wine selection is good - try their Turkish reds. Only the food is a bit pricey.

    The choice of spices and herbs in their food and cocktails couldn't be closer to perfection. Breathtaking views and chilled atmosphere. A must in Istanbul.

    Outstanding view !! The location is great and the food very nice and staff alright. Very good drinks and cocktails at the bar anytime in the evening/night. I highly recommend the bosphorus martini.

    Brilliant views,180 degrees. Great food and a smart vibe. DJ set the perfect mood (not over the top as we were there to dine). Try the sundried eggplant with cherries and spiced rice. WOW

    The view is absolutely amazing, but the place is absolutely overpriced. There is a pretty old-fashioned and (“Turkish” I would say ) atmosphere with a specific music. Also it’s pretty hot inside

    As an appetiser, you should try goat cheese fried in puff pastry with pomegranate syrup. Tarama and spicy mackerel Marin, shrimp with aubergine puree, ribs, tandoori, topik... Read more

    Very similar to White Rabbit in Moscow! Nice place for dinner - Bosphorus in lights looks amazing! Causine is light Mediterranean with local accents. You will not be disappointed!

    Free wifi:10203040. Go for the meat instead of the fish. Desert was to die for. Beautiful view but try to avoid the table next to the smoker section.

    Great place for special days. View is great. Menu is great. Really pricy. Make reservation unless it is hard to find a table with view.

    On a rooftop just off Istiklâl, by night the place is packed to hear the in-house DJ. At lunch you’ll find a half-empty restaurant and a view of ships on a sparkling sea.

    If they are booked out just ask for a table in the bar. Views of the Bosphorous are just as good ;)

    Feels like a great adventure getting there, but it's a full fledged bar at night. Food was expensive & a let down. Better for drinks.

    Good: nice view, tasty traditional turkish cuisine. Bad: it's pricey for the food they serve. Result: go for the beautiful view of Istanbul, don't expect much more.

    Food was good except the sis kebab that was cooked with meat that really should be served in a restaurant of this scale. Make sure you understand that you have to wait in line for a balcony spot
