It's nice to visit if you are already tired of spicy turkish dishes and want to have something more familiar. Crepes, scrambled eggs, croissants, fresh mixed juices (very good -for 18 liras). Great wines for the evening. Plus you can watch the ships in the port

This is a really pleasant, modern restaurant attached to the wonderful Istanbul Modern gallery. The views from the tables on the outdoor terrace are pretty stunning except for when you accidently coincide your visit with a passing cruise ship, as we did. Unfortunately the ships dock right in front of the building and are very noisy.
Despite the view, we really enjoyed our visit. We had the warm goats cheese salad and the calamari salad, both very fresh and tasty and also surprisingly filling. The food is very good value for the standard of restaurant and makes a nice end to a visit to the gallery. We'd love to return some day.

This restaurant is inside the Modern Istanbul Museum.. It is extremely good restaurant, nice decoration, astonishing view, and the terrace from of Bosphorus having a nice view of Istanbul in a different perspective...

Fantastic location with out-door seating. This was the second time (last time was in december) we have been visiting during the morning and again staff wasn't welcoming. Complete lack of interest! They even start looking annoyed when guests like us, already having had their breakfast, order only drinks. Particularly because there isn't any dish to order besides breakfast. It should be mentioned that the breakfast they serve looked nice and extensive. While sitting in the sun for almost an hour I longed for some ice cream, milkshake or cake. Like all the other guests we had to settle with just drinks like coffee, tea, soda or juice.
