Fodor's Expert Review 5. Kat
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
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.
