Views were stunning & one should get there before sunset to see t contrasts! Drinks in the bar before the restaurant opened were good. Restaurant opened at 7. Extensive food menu as was the wine menu. Food & service was very good. Expensive night out!

One of the best restaurant in Istanbul. The food is delicious and the view is everything. My only remark is the staff as they were not so friendly.

Dear mano0li, It is coreect that we are located at the Ulus Park but you cannot reach the restaurant from the main entrance of the park, you would need to round the park for our entrance.
