Fodor's Review

Fitting for a restaurant housed in the Çırağan Palace, dinner here is a refined, luxurious affair, with formal service, rich Ottoman and Turkish specialties, and one of the most high-end wine lists in Turkey (Chateau Pétrus, anyone?). The quite pricey menu features a variety of cold and hot meze, and entrées emphasize fish and meat, such as in the restaurant's signature külbastı, lamb escalope served with pureed eggplant. Reserve a table to dine alfresco in the small balcony, where marble columns flank a beautiful Bosphorus view, or ensconce yourself in the elegant interior, with its soaring ceilings, large mirrors, grand paintings, and hanging oriental lamps.
