Turkey Trip Itineraries

Top 10 Five Star Restaurants in Turkey

Destination(s): Bursa

Top class eating in Turkey is not just about the amazing food deals, but also about wonderful scenery and the best service. The restaurants we have selected use the very best ingredients in imaginative dishes to provide you with some memorable times, so make sure you allow yourself the indulgence of a high class culinary experience. One of the best places to do this in the company of a Turkish serenade guitar player is Zenger Pasa Konagi, but if you happen to be particular about the clientele rather than the food you should not miss Ulus 29. Topaz Restaurant is famed for winning several culinary and management awards, while the best catch of the day seafood is to be found at Trilye Restaurant. You will encounter local Ottoman flavors gently combined with contemporary Mediterranean influences to create the best dishes Turkey has to offer. read more about Top 10 Five Star Restaurants in Turkey

One of the hottest clubs in Turkey, Reina is actually a vast playground filled with bars, restaurants and dance floors that can welcome up to 2500 people. Supposedly, the name 'Reina' was inspired by a 'very cute' 3-year-old girl (wCities). In the past few years, Reina has been becoming more and more "less local." This has to do with its vast popularity and scenery, which have made it very famous worldwide and thus very crowded. It is located at the foot of the European side with a magnificent view of the Bosphorus Bridge. It is open every season, yet moves out to its vast open space in the summers. The place gets renovated right down to its toilets almost every season and opens both its winter and summer seasons with huge parties. The restaurants inside this complex run the gamut from Italian to Sushi to more traditional local fare. Many well-known restaurants including Kosebasi Kebab, Samdan Restaurat and Dragon Chinese Restaurant move into Reina for the summer season. Nevertheless, you may not be able to find the same restaurant here season after season: Who pays the piper calls the tune...

Ulus 29

Ulus 29

  • Ahmet Adnan Saygun Caddesi
  • Ulus Parki No.1, Ulus
  • tel:90 212 358 2929
  • Visit website
  • Istanbul

Despite a fairly good French-influenced menu, most of the moneyed clientele come here to be seen rather than eat. The well-heeled customers enter through a narrow corridor -a.k.a VIP-, walk over colorful old carpets and bright kilims (traditional Turkish rugs) into a wide saloon with an incredible view of the Bosphorus. Ulus 29 is located right above, on the same hill as the, Sunset Grill Bar & Restaurant. The two restaurants share the same aura, clientele and the view; and have slightly influenced menus, yet differ by the fact that Ulus 29 is a bar, restaurant and club. Even though dinner may end around midnight at 29, the 29 club is usually just starting by that time. The ostentatious dcor of both restaurant and the club area makes the whole place resemble a gigantic Bedouin tent. In summer, everyone prefers to dine on the open-air garden terrace with fabulous views of the Bosphorus. The menu covers a wide array of cuisines, but is fairly influenced by French, Ottoman Classics and Italian.

Da Vittorio, Locanda Italiana

Da Vittorio, Locanda Italiana

  • Meşrutiyet Caddesi Ansen Suites 130, Tepebasi
  • tel:90 212 245 88 17
  • Visit website
  • Istanbul

Da Vittorio, on the first floor of Ansen Suites, might be the one and only true Italian restaurant in Istanbul. Its owner and chef Vittorio Sindoni used to work at a variety of other worldwide well-known Italian restaurant branches in Istanbul (Bice, Papermoon and W Hotel Restaurant) before opening his own place in Galata, Beyoglu. Once inside, one feels as if in Roma or Milan upon hearing "Ciao, Buena sera, tutto bene, eh?" and the dim-litted interiors with the decoration of a typical trattoria (Italian Restaurants) seem to corroborate that hunch. Fortunately, the staff is multilingual. They speak English as well as some Turkis; but do keep on going dropping at you few "Thank you's" and "Please's" in Italian through the night. Menu is also quite traditional: a few antipasti (entries), few primi piattis (first dishes)–pasta basically- followed by the secondi (second dishes) -meat or fish. Aside from what is regularly on the menu, there are also a few other daily meals, including very unique dishes like grilled artichokes. "Paccheri Amitriciana" –fresh pasta with tomato and goat cheese, fillet mignon sauted with Barolo wine and served with caramelized potatoes and spinach, and the spaghetti with sardines are also extremely delicious. Nevertheless, the best meal of all times might be its Osso Bucco -which unfortunately is not on the regular menu, but is one of the daily-served dishes. There is also wide selection of red and white Italian wines. The staff is extremely friendly and cheerful, making you feel like at home.

Topaz Restaurant

Topaz Restaurant

  • Istanbul

Opened in 2007, Topaz Restaurant is a serious and elegant place established inside a tall residential building up on the hills of Gumussuyu. One side of the establishment, that is looking directly over Bosphorus, has been covered entirely by window panes, creating a mystifying atmosphere, an illusion that you may be reigning over the Bosphorus. Sitting by the window panes on this side makes you also feel as if you are hovering over the beautiful city of Istanbul. The food, as well as the atmosphere, is also overwhelming. It is not cheap, but worth every penny. the menu is diverse with samples of Ottoman Cuisine and World Cuisine. Bursa Gazipasa Artichokes with black rice, Tortellini with pate, Vegetable risotto with beef, Istanbul Seabass with Agean grassroots are highly recommended. There are also two degustacion menus: one on Ottoman cuisine and one on Mediterrenean. Good variety of wine, very good service.

Owned and managed by one of the high society foreign wives to one of the high society Turkish businessmen, El Beso is surprisingly and remarkably good. The food and the menu are delicately prepared, service is kind and polite, prices hefty; yet the price for value is well maintained. A nice option for you in-town dinner or informal get-together with friends over tapas; or a romantic dinner with a romantic partner.
