We had done our homework before we arrived in Istanbul and this was one of the recommendations of must do`s whilst in the city. We chose a bright sunny Sunday morning to enjoy a breakfast overlooking the Bosphorus. Waiters could have been friendlier but overall...More

The bar/cafe/ restaurant is located on the waters edge. It has a wide variety of food and snacks and drinks, all well served. In a few years time the devlopment of the quayside will be done and this location will be packed!

Great collection of Modern Art. Beautiful location right on the Bosphorus shore. Would be interesting to see their Biennale too! Strongly recommend it when in Istanbul to see the new city vibes. Their cafe is also really good.

almost as large as the exhibit space itself, this is a good place to hang out and enjoy the view, but considering the museum's entry fee, not a modest budget option

Great place to visit if you're interested in modern art. The gallery was quite big and had different types of pieces in it such as photographs and painting for example.

Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy
is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at
the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most
historically significant area, it’s currently one of
the most happening parts of town as well. Here street
vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks
of the Horn where the views of major attractions
across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions,
