Reviewed January 5, 2017

The venue location is easy to access, except the jammed traffic during weekends, and end of day hours. There is valet parking, which is a must and makes things quite easy in any venue in the vicinity.

The view upstairs is awesome. In the summer, it becomes an open-terrace, and in the winter there is good heating which makes you sit comfortably. Tables and seating is arranged a bit condensed, though it does not make any trouble and you may comfortably sit. Chairs and sofas are very comfortable.

The menu, although not very rich, is full of very delicious dishes. They even have some special dishes of their own. Any food I tried (soup, main course, side kicks, desserts) were very tasty. The presentation of the dish is very nice.

The shisha is also very good. They serve Nakhla, Al Fakhr, and Starbuzz, Shisha is served after 14:00.

The service is excellent. Everyone is smiling, and they show their willingness to serve. They are very polite, and suggest you really good tastes in case you fail to choose what to eat and drink.

In the day time, you could even use the venue to comfortably sit and work, have your lunch, and in the evening / night time, you could enjoy it with your friends and family. (The terrace is a smoking lounge so it would not be suitable for kids for sure, especially in winter time)

The music is also okay, as it is not too loud (not too low either), they play mostly Turkish pop music, and it accompanies you without disturbing.

Prices are acceptable as per the price/performance comparison. It's not cheap definitely, but it's not too much expensive either. Above average could define the pricing properly I guess.

Definitely one of my #1 and 5-Star rated choices. Highly recommended.

My only reason for going was because I'd read a review raving about their beautiful breakfast. However, it was quite the opposite. We ordered a serpme kahvalti, the helping of which were tiny. The omelettes were pretty average, the tea was extremely watered down and flavorless ( and they charged me five times for it!). And worst of all, they served us moulded cheese.... and that too...a large part of it.... blue and green, complete with the white fuzz. When i brought that to their attention, there was no attempt at an apology. But that's not the cake on the icing: i totally felt like little ms muffet when down came a spider from the chandelier above....heading straight for the food on the table. Couldn't have been worse. I cant believe we paid so much money for such a third rate restaurant. The only positive things I can say about them is that the restaurant is situated on the bosphorus, making for beautiful views (even though they didn't let me sit upstairs..when it was empty)... and the fact that they brought me simit on request (perhaps from outside) after they served us crappy bread. Never again.

As you may see in other comments, it has a beautiful view. There are stairs before you enter so if you have old friends or baby with stroller it may be a bit hard. It has vale service. The breakfast was very nice. Service was ok. I think the price was fair considering the location. I have to say, despite their name the coffee was not tasty. I would definitely expect more tasty coffee from Taskahve. Anyway, should be in your list for a nice breakfast.
