“Amazing view of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2012 via mobile

We've stopped in here several times for drinks with a view over multiple trips to Istanbul. The view is great day or night. It seems to be frequented by locals and off the tourist path. Unfortunately, the service during our last visit was less than friendly. Hopefully this was a one time thing as we'd like to go back to visit this off the beaten path roof top.

“Nice Balcony Esp for Smokers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2011

-Food is not always the best. If you want to go here just go for couple of drinks after eating somewhere else or just have some junk food w your cold beer.

-Staff is friendly most of the time.

-The view is cool so you can spend hours here.

-Always take your pull w u as it is chilly in the evenings.

-More importantly: Either start or finish your night w the delicious Hazelnut Shot!!!

“Nice personnel,bad food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2010

I visited this restaurant a couple of times.Personnel is very helpful and kind. The atmosphere is fair for a bar/restaurant.Not high quality but not low either.The food i ate was low in quality and the price is therefore too much for that level.I do not recommend this place for food.But may be an alternative for a drink.
