The iconic restaurant has won several international and local accolades, including Time Out Istanbul's Best Restaurant in Istanbul in 2004 and the Zagat Survey of European Cities' "Best Restaurants in Istanbul" in 2002 and 2009.

Tuğra Restaurant

This award-winning restaurant specializes in dishes inspired by Ottoman cuisine and is located on the first floor of Çırağan Palace, erected in 1871, and sits atop one of Istanbul's most picturesque vistas. Rich Ottoman décor, live classical Turkish music, and the Bosporus as a constant backdrop. Request a table on Tura's summer patio, which gets lighted by the moon, a candle, and the Bosporus Bridge.


Vogue is situated in Akaretler, in the heart of the Beşiktaş District. It lies quite close to the bustling shopping scene in Nişantaşı, museums, and to the arbitrarily scattered bookshops in the Beşiktaş Market. The menu features world cuisine, Mediterranean cuisine, and a range of Japanese specialties, with an extensive wine list. There is also a cocktail bar providing experimental drinks for those who are feeling daring.

Lacivert Restaurant

The most romantic view of the Istanbul Strait may be seen at Lacivert Istanbul, located on the Asian side of the Bosporus. Since 1999, Lacivert "Dark Blue" Restaurant has been serving customers.
