About
The head spinning adventure of “5. Kat Restaurant” filled with art, taste and style began in 1993, in Beyoğlu’s historic Cihangir neighborhood. İstanbul’s oldest civilian cultural center which has played host to many cultural events, concerts, talks and art workshops. Thus, its setting became probably the city’s most breathtaking one, reaching from Sarayburnu to the Bosphorus. It took its name from the 5th floor of the building it’s in, Bilsak (science art institute ); Actress/Director Yasemin Alkaya is the founder and her passion for art is reflected on everything from the extraordinary fabric of the place to its yummylicious food and ofcourse to its celebrity guest list. The first week of April, 2017, Sir Ian McKellen (Lord of the Rings) and his close friend Lord Michael Cashman dined at 5. Kat together with world famous director Volker Schlondorff. Oliver Laxe, Jo Sol, Gabe Klinger also enjoyed a beautiful night as well.5th Floor also made a name for itself with its unique parties.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have been to 5 Kat a few times on the last few days. Whether for drinks or dinner it never disappoints. The barman Memet is very good and, if you have dinner, islam is very friendly and will provide you with truly exceptional service. He knows how to make you feel special and will do everything to make sure your dinner is memorable. Highly recommended. This is a place that combines a unique location with great staff who enjoy their work and this translates in a great experience for the customers...

A beautiful place with a roof from which you can contemplate a splendid view. The menu is a mingle-mangle of European (mediterranean Europe with a pinch of Italian taste that is very familiar for the reviewer) and Near East gastronomic tradition. But first of all you will feel always in a kind of comfort zone: customer care is splendid and we did appreciate mr Eslam who was always attentive and gentle in a very crowded friday evening.

We went there as a couple for a little celebration. Despite we didn't book any table, we had one of the best seat possible. The view is amazing, and most importantly İslam take care us extremely well. Our night is 10 out of 10! For the food, you can find very different tastes and most important thing is the wines and coktails. Price tag is not very high for the view and customer care especially from the İslam who deserve 5 star for sure. I want to try breakfast in there as well in the spring time since the rooftop is not open at the moment.

We had a great evening at 5. Kat. The mezzes were delicious and the wine excellent. Islam was an amazing host. When a table at the window came free with the best views he made sure we could move there. He offered us complimentary dessert with fresh fruit and delicious chocolate cheesecake. We will certainly come back.

We had a wonderful time at the 5. Kat restaurant. We pre-booked which meant we had a table with an amazing view and we were also able to pre-order food. The food was amazing, we had a platter to start and the beef tenderloin for main - we would highly recommend. The atmosphere at the restaurant was really friendly and romantic and the view topped the experience off! The staff were very welcoming and attentive, Islam in particular looked after us very well. We would definitely recommend the restaurant but just make sure you order mains in advance if you want a full meal!

We were a couple, visiting this restaurant on Wednesday evening. Long story short - this is the best restaurant we have visited in Istanbul (we visited 5-6 of them). There were not many people probably because of quarantine but it's usually really popular so better to book a table in advance. The stuff is really friendly and attentive, thought not intrusive. They are really trying to make your visit as nice as possible. The waiter proposed us to take a place in a separate space even though it was invented for beverages, not the meals. At every moment during the evening we felt care from their side. The meals are delicious too! We had shashlik kebab, 2 desserts and a few cocktails - everything tasted really great. In addition, we got a tea as a present, which is very nice! The music and the atmosphere overall is calm and brings good vibes. All in all, this is a perfect place for a nice dinner. We'll surely come back when visiting Istanbul next time.

I went to 5 Kat 2 times with my husband after a review from trip advisor and it was worth it. First time we sat at the rooftop and bar wich is closed by glass, it has an amazing panoramic view of the bosphorus. Second time we sat in the restaurant because the weather was too windy. The food is so delicious. We tried the goat cheese and avocado salad, the gorgonzola honey salad the beef ribs and the lamb shank and all were so delicious. The restaurant is very cozy and welcoming. The service is so good especially Yunus, Erdem and Simon they are so nice and friendly. We highly recommend it.

The view is good, but do not expect anything special about food. 1) They provide for a “Day menu”, which is very small and has nothing to do with the large menu on their site. 2) Food is very average, plate of starters is overgrilled 3) Service is slow.

It is hard to define this place a restaurant. At most they have some average level finger food (cheese with nuts and grapes) or fast food-like food (meat balls with fries). The view is stunning, the place is so how cost. Cocktails are not exceptionally executed but not bad either, so it is fine as a nice happy hour/cocktail bar. The problem comes with defining it a restaurant, that it is not. Name it a bar or lounge bar or cocktail bar and customers would not be deceived, so you will get mostly good reviews.

If you’re in town, 5 Kat Restaurant (5th Floor) is to go for the best service, spectacular view of the city in it’s rooftop patio bar, but most definitely the drinks by the in house bar artist Mehmet. This guy upon sitting at the bar treats you like family and seeks to provide you the absolute best time at the bar. This is a MUST. Mehmet= The BEST!

It is a ridiculously gorgeous restaurant on a rooftop with a unique view over Bosphorus. Our host (Islam) did his best to make it a memorable birthday event for us. By the way, It is an ideal spot for a late night date for your lovers out there.

Great restaurant with a laid back atmosphere. The view from the terrace was also amazing. Our bartender, Memet, was very friendly and made us some delicious cocktails. The Long Island ice teas were bomb!

We’ve been in turkey for 4 weeks and came here for the last night. All we can say is wow. This place is absolutely amazing - the ambience, service and most importantly the food are off the scale. I said to my partner that this ranks in the top 3 dining experiences I have ever had in my life. Totally awesome. Big thanks to our waiter Adam who could not have done more.
