Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Istanbul

Topaz
A newcomer that opened in November 07, this classy establishment is already describing itself as the 'jewel of Istanbul'.
Zuma
Feriye
If this fabulous restaurant was any closer to the Bosphorus, it would be underwater. With food and service as befits its grand setting, it is perfect for a special night out.
Leb-i Derya Richmond
This second Leb-i-Derya is more restaurant than bar. Whilst it shares fabulous city and Bosphorus views with its sister restaurant nearby, this restaurant in the central Richmond hotel is perfect for a romantic dinner. styl
Vogue
As you would expect from the name, glamour is the order of the day here. Well-designed and slick decor complements the well-dressed crowd enjoying the international cuisine.
Lokanta Maya
Local fare with a taste of global flavour from superstar chef Didem Senol. Not to be missed if you can help it...
Minyon W Istanbul
Beautiful people and a trendy ambience make this your absolute go-to place for a night on the town.
Poseidon
Located in Bebek, the smart village-cum-suburb on the European shore of the Bosphorus, a trip to this excellent seafood restaurant is something of a pilgrimage.
Ulus 29
A glamorous alternative to Sunset, Ulus 29 is also located in Ulus Park. Dress to impress to join the smart crowd of Istanbulli professionals for great cocktails and well-executed Turkish dishes.=display:none;""
Sunset Grill & Bar
Well worth the taxi ride to Ulus Park, Sunset's enduring popularity with the smart crowd is due to its fabulous terrace with Bosphorus views, excellent varied menu and well-stocked wine cellar.
Mimolett
Take taste to another level at this epicurean haven...
Pandeli
An Istanbul classic, Pandeli's charm lies in its location - there can be few better places to feel the the essence of Old Istanbul.
Cok Cok
Beyoglu's chic favourites, Wanna and Lokanta, face stiff competition from this stylish newcomer. Cok Cok serves up Asian food culture and design with cosy intimacy.
Seasons
If you are not fortunate enough to be staying at the excellent Four Seasons hotel in Sultanahmet, a trip to the Seasons Restaurant is a good substitute if you are in the mood for fine dining.
Körfez
A must for guests of the A'jia hotel (also in Kanlica) Korfez attracts diners from across the city. Take the restaurant's water taxi across the Bosphorus for a memorable evening of excellent fish in a beautiful setting. sty
