Every day millions of people walk down Istanbul’s famous Istiklal Street unaware of the hidden terrace restaurants nearby offering magnificent cuisine and divine views of the Bosphorus Strait. Divan Brasserie Beyoğlu is one such restaurant.
Opened in 2014, the brasserie is the youngest member of the well-known Divan Group (est. 1956) – a prestigious brand for hotels, residences, restaurants, catering venues, patisseries and bakeries in Turkey.
The Divan Brasserie excels in plating timeless recipes with modern touches and offers an excellent beverage menu including local and international wines and beers. Take a seat here for lunch or dinner and enjoy gastro-travelling through a menu of regional dishes such as the Albanian style liver, and pan seared lamb served in eggplant puree or go with the international favourites such as gourmet pizzas, beef burgers and seafood dishes.
Istanbullus (Istanbul residents) will say you haven’t dined in Istanbul until you’ve dined at a rooftop terrace overlooking the city. To find Divan Brasserie Beyoğlu look for Koć University on Istiklal Caddesi (Street). Follow the discrete signage and let the glass elevator will take you the rest of the way.
