    It's for special occasions. VERY delicious, very expensive, very glamorous. 40 pages wine card! Stunning view. Don't go there if you're not ready to spend 500 liras for perfect dinner :)

    An amazing view, great choice cocktails and nice selection of wine. Pretty much the best stop in Istanbul. Certainly not cheap but deserves it to the fullest. Friendly stuff. A must see.

    All of us- from dif. continents somehow- loved this place haha. Beautiful view, extremely nice service and reasonable wine price compared to others. Delicious meal for sure. Bar is also incredible:)

    It has an amazing view with perfect location. The menu is fixed and Chef Gurs did an amazing job with his choices. Everything we tasted was delicious.

    I tasted for starter Turkish Manti and then lamb in the oven for main course and finally for dessert, quince dessert with baklava, with a slight modern twist 😉

    Rooftop bar is lovely, the staff was attentive and very kind and the food was definitely delicious but maybe not sufficient amount-wise even for a fine-dining experience. But overall a must try

    Along with a solid wine list, the restaurant’s top-floor spot allows for great views of Istanbul at night. The bar and terrace are good options for after-dinner drinks. Read more

    Beautifully located to overseeing both East and West side of Istanbul. Recommend the tasting menu pairing with wine. Food 8/10, ambiance 9.5/10, service 8/10, value for money 8/10.

    A Turkish culinary success story! Chef Mehmet Gürs and his culinary temple that ranked no.44 in the World's Best Restaurant listing in 2018. Don't forget to have a drink before dinner at the roof bar.

    Great place with amazing cocktails and a beautiful view of Istanbul. Staff is very friendly and professional. I haven't had any food here but I am guessing quality wouldn't change.

    I didn't go for the restaurant, which I know is great and fancy, but for the rooftop at sunset time. It was great - but I also know there tons of other rooftops in the city

    In summer they open a rooftop bar, where you can enjoy beautiful 360' panoramic view of Istanbul. Staffs are super nice too;)

    Dining at Mikla is all about the experience, not just the food - The chef is a flavor genius! Appetizers were AMAZING. Nice scenic view. My least favorite was the dessert.

    Surprisingly I liked desserts much better than mains. Amazing view especially on the terrace. It has no Michelin star + no dessert wine as well which is quite shocking. Not bad value for money overall

    I went to the bar as another reviewer suggested rather than doing the tasting menu. Best views in the city - but don't go with high expectations for the food and drinks. (Especially the cocktails.)

    In the summers, the terrace bar upstairs becomes one of the best places to have a drink while the breeze softens stylish cocktail-sipping nights.

    1 Michelin star restaurant - incredible view (great at sunset), fine food, expensive bill. Worth going up there for a cocktail without staying for dinner

    The food is great, but it’s a very pricey meal compared to all the other great options you have in Istanbul. Also, the service is terrible. Every waiter has an attitude, very arrogant.
