Rooftop Dining in Cihangir
Kat 5 (Floor 5), in Istanbul’s upscale Cihangir neighborhood, boasts a menu of gourmet cuisine and magnificent views of the Bosporus in an elegant setting straight from the pages of a Vogue Living magazine.

The prices are a little more than what you pay elsewhere, but then there’s not many places in Istanbul where you can enjoy high-quality international cuisines like lamb shanks, Asian-style seafood dishes, and pastas from a rooftop location.

Dine here during the day for a buffet brunch and you’ll enjoy the sites and sounds of the Bosporus, while evening sittings are spectacular with the lights of Istanbul twinkling in the distance. Do check out the Prix Fixe menu. The menu gives a generous selection of dishes to make up a three-course meal, with local drinks included—starting from 95TL per person.
