Istanbul special occasion with a view

I am looking for a special occasion restaurant (5th anniversary) in Istanbul. Will be staying at the Four Seasons Bosphorous. Would really like a spectacular view and possibly accessible by water taxi.

Am considering Mikla. Any other ideas? Or thoughts on Mikla?

Thank you!!!

  1. Mikla was great, definitely has the "special" feel. I don't remember exactly what we ate, but we really enjoyed the food. Try to arrive about half an hour before sunset, and let them know it is an anniversary. Ask for a table on the terrace.

    1. Iskele balik & Rumelihisari. Shoulbtake a table at the terrace right on top of Bosphorus

      1. doesnt meet your requirements for this occasion, but perhaps for another romantic meal. my favorite restaurant in istanbul was mohti laz mehane. they specialize in the little local hamsi fish. the grilled hamsi, ekmek or hamsi cornbread and the stringy cheese are delicious, among other things.
