A beautiful, lush setting just a stone's throw from the Bosphorus, a Mediterranean-inspired menu, and a sophisticated ambiance makes this restaurant in the Sakıp Sabancı Museum a draw in its own right. Particularly recommendable are the small plates, which include reinterpretations of traditional Turkish mezes, such as grilled halloumi cheese in vine leaves or fried zucchini flowers stuffed with lor cheese. Overseen by award-winning London-based chef Peter Gordon, the
menu also shows international influences, like the sea bass with creamy basil sauce or catfish served with potato salad. The venue is especially relaxing in summer, when seating is on the open-air terrace.
