5. Kat Review

A rather pricey restaurant that turns into a trendy lounge/bar later in the evening, 5. Kat is on the fifth floor of an unassuming building in the quiet Cihangir neighborhood and offers wonderful views of the Bosphorus—along with great cocktails. With its wooden furniture and potted plants, the upper-level terrace (open only in warm months) makes you feel like you're passing the time on somebody's roof deck.

    The restaurant has asked me for a deposit of EUR 50 to secure a booking on the first weekend where demonstrations have begun. I received an email from them 24 hours in advance to inform me that the restaurant would probably not open on that day. I then called Sunday morning to get an update about the situation and they told me in a very evasive way that it was better not to come and that in they would not serve brunch on that day which was clearly requested in my reservation. Despite several requests they refused to refund me. This speaks for itself about the mindset of the managers or owners. The most appropriate word would be "thieves"!
