As we headed out to dinner on Day 3 in Turkey, we got to see the Galata Tower at night:
Tonight’s dinner would be at Mikla restaurant. I knew it had a great view, but I was not prepared for how great. After we arrived at the restaurant, which is located on the rooftop of the Marmara Hotel Pera, I was blown away by where we would be eventually seated. I should note that the front staff were extremely friendly.
The meal started with some amuse:
We also had some Turkish wine – Bordeaux Style.
For food, octopus to start:
…and for main….
To be honest, I wasn’t thinking about the food. I was completely distracted by the views.
I should note that Mikla is on the World’s 50 Best Discovery list. I do remember the food being good, and I was relieved because a lot of places will have restaurants in lookouts where the food is a secondary thought, or meant for tourists. I would highly recommend this place for the food, service and incredible INCREDIBLE views.
After dinner we headed to the upstairs bar and enjoyed some more spectacular views of Istanbul.
