Fodor's Review

The largest and one of the most popular branches of this chain of upscale eateries is directly on the waterfront, with chic furnishings and two enormous open-air terraces. The international menu ranges from starters like Asian-style crispy chicken fingers and salmon ceviche to main-course salads, pastas, pizzas, steaks, and the signature House Burger. Two long wooden bars are perfect for enjoying a predinner drink from the excellent cocktail list.The chain has successfully expanded to eight locations in Istanbul, including a branch on İstiklal Caddesi in Beyoğlu that's trendy and happening, while the original venue, in chic Nişantaşı, has a more laid-back vibe and a shady garden.
