We visited here again because we had a superb meal here in the past. The bar area has a terrace which overlooks the Bosphorous and the views are superb. We had some beautiful cocktails whilst waiting for our table. The service was excellent. However this time we were not so impressed with the food. 2 of us had the lamb... More

The food is excellent, but the view is even better. I would recommend going for dinner, but arriving early to have a glass of wine on the balcony. You will not find a better view in Istanbul.

With very high expectations I visited this restaurant a couple of months back for the tasting menu. My first impressions were less than satisfactory: there was nobody at the restaurant entrance or any indication of where to wait to be seen to/seated. After an awkward half minute or so had passed I was given a choice of which table I... More

If you are looking for a fine dining place in Istanbul, Mikla is absolutely the right place. They are combining the traditional Anatolian cuisine with a new form of fusion food. It is absolutely one of the best dinners I have ever had. The portions are not big as traditional Turkish portions but all very delicious. The prices may be... More

Nice restaurant with the good chefs. They were so nice and told us in details about the food that they served. Some tastes so good like the olive oil with the bread. But in general I don't like the session of the tastes. Not for my gusto I guess. Though the wine selection was excellent. And the interior needs a... More

We are dinner at New Year's Eve and were so disappointed that we sent an email to the restaurant with some constructive comments. We've never heard back. Since we've not changed our mind, we paste the letter here as our review. Dear sir, We thought we should share our impression of dinner at Mikla with you. We were there last... More

I went there with my boyfriend to visit Istanbul and our place was next to the restaurant. A chill out atmosphere with a beautiful view of the city, the food was very nice. It's quite expensive considering also the other place in town. But you are in the 56th restaurant in the world.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
