Try One of the World's Best Restaurants
Known for its elevated approach to Turkish cuisine, as well as their elevated views of Istanbul from atop The Marmara Pera hotel, Mikla is ranked 51 in the World's Best Restaurants and should be top of your list for a memorable night out in Istanbul. Mehmet Gurs, Istanbul's most famous chef, draws from his Finnish-Turkish background to combine traditional dishes, ancient cooking techniques, and local ingredients with a forward-thinking and environmentally sustainable perspective on food. The menu changes daily but might include manti (ravioli) with smoked buffalo yogurt or lor (cheese curd) ice cream. Even if you can't get a reservation for dinner here, city views can be enjoyed along with a cocktail at the bar or out on the terrace.
