    Some of the best place in Istanbul to lunch while looking elegant, this smooth brasserie is located on the ground floor of Beymen’s store at the trendy Nisantasi quarter on the hill over Besiktas. The charming wooden bar and soft leather seats compliment the Art Deco feel, while it also has a pretty terrace “a la française” with a strong taste of Paris.

    Its sophisticated Mediterranean menu prove that the store’s beautiful customers don’t survive on light and expensive products alone. Big windows allow everyone to be seen. It’s not cheap, but nor is the atmosphere you feel around.

    LIMON CAFE: a wonderful sunset back in the history of History

    The name of Bodrum derives from “Petronium”, named after the Hospitaller Castle of St. Peter.

    The site was formerly known as Halikarnassus (greek) or Halikarnas (turkish).

    Bodrum was famous for housing the Mausoleum of Mausolus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World & it was famous as well for being the homeland of the Father of the Written History: ¡Herodotus!.

    The reminiscence of such a landmark of HISTORY in capital letters can be tasted in a hidden gem of a secret garden & oasis which smells of figs and flowers and sights a vast horizon…

    Thank you Sertac!

    You gave us the tip for this wonderful spot which is a highlight to remember.

    Banyan Restaurant at the Bosphorus :

    BOSPHORUS: An appealing word to everybody within our shipping community and two curiosities to note: BOSPHORUS meaning THROAT in turkish language & ISTANBUL meaning “In the city” for the ancients.

    Arguably one of the best locations for a dinner or just putting a drink “down the throat” in a magical megalopolis such as it is Istanbul.

    A spot overlooking the Bosphorus strait and just next to a gem of a mosque in Ortakoy….
    Indulge in Banyan Restaurant’s heaven in front of a worldwide reknown bridge connecting 2 ancient continents…

    There may be bigger, flashier venues in Istanbul but few can match Banyan Restaurant in terms of an unforgettable summer atmosphere…with one big exception: ¡THE BORACHART PARTY!, truly a highlight. We like to congratulate them for their wonderful venue.

    P.s: Either this very location is inclusive or not; World’s Best Bars is more than a bar directory…it’s a site with a mission: to allocate and review the planet’s finest bars: www.worldsbestbars.com
    We recommend BANYAN restaurant  specially for an evening drink and light dinner at the bar. Ideal for 2 or 3 persons.
