Really enjoyed the cuisine at this restaurant which had a French and Mediterranean influence and the perfect wine list to match. Loved the atmosphere at this place very romantic, music was great, good service from the staff.

It is a small and cosy restaurant at the top of a small hotel and has great view of the Bosphorus. The food is basically French and international cuisine. We went there with my wife and my parents and we were all quite happy about the food quality. I would definitely recommend snails, frog legs and roasted duck. The wine... More

Great view from the roof top restaurant, but that's about it. Food less than average, wine list very limited, asked for Henry's Gyn not available, so limited branded liquors. Place look old, not well kept.

We went to Petit maison in Dubai already and familiar with the concept. The service is very good and professional. As well the food is very good and some signature dishes are on the Menu as well here. The foie parfait was perfect and the Salt crusted sea bass devine. The salmon carpaccio however wasn't up to our expectation. Then... More

The food was decent quality but the restaurant is living on its past successes ( awards from 2004) and the view. The atmosphere was poor when we were there because there were very few diners. With a modernisation and the right management a relaunched format could make it one of the top restaurants in the area.

We celebrated our friend's birthday in La Maison last Saturday. It's a gorgeous, posh and peaceful restaurant where you can really enjoy yourself. The wines are incredibly delicious and the waiters have the knowledge to help you choose the perfect wine for your dish(es). To my biggest unluck i chose the worst main course (duck with apple sauce), which i... More

This might be one of my favourite places in Istanbul. I went to La Maison three times, each time a romantic occasion as the restaurant has a great view of the city on the outside balcony area. But it is not the scene that makes it such a gem but the food served in the restaurant. La Maison is a... More

I had booked this for our 30th wedding anniversary dinner, off previous Trip Advisor members had recommended it. Pulling up outside in the taxi I thought to myself, oh heck boo booed again, the outside was a bit of a let down as the restaurant is situated in a pretty nondescript building but a lift up to the restaurant changed...

La maison has been consistently excellent over the various visits I've paid here in the last four months. I count myself lucky to have a place with such excellent service, beautiful view and delicious food just a few doors from my apartment. The waiters are charming, unobtrusive and polite, making this a great place for a business dinner, a date... More

The sea bass risotto was fantastic at this friendly restaurant on the roof at La Maison hotel. Other diners had the steak which they also raved about. Friendly service. Quite pricey but worth it - especially when looking at the view over the Bosphorus at sunset.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
