The craze of having rooftop bars in Istanbul started about 10 years ago. Many restaurant and bar owners wanted to be able to take their clientèle and escape the hustle and bustle of the streets below. These bars became very popular and the clientèle became much more high class and along with them so did the venues. Seats along balconies overlooking what feels like the world have become very sought after and highly priced but well worth the effort of getting.
Based in the middle of the old town in Istanbul, Leb-i Derya is one of the best restaurants in the city. The owners were amongst the first to set up a rooftop restaurant and realise the potential that was available to them when escaping the busy streets and rising above the city. The beautiful weather coupled with outstanding views of the old city leads to a truly exquisite location.
the food and drinks definitely match the location in quality and in price. you would expect to pay a little more in such a secluded, romantic location but at times the prices can be a little extreme for drinks. The food is made to near enough perfecting and the sea bass with pancetta is amongst the best I have ever tried. The highlights of the menu also include many Turkish classics such as walnut eggplant with smoked pepper cream and stuffed bell peppers.
this is an ideal place to relax day and night. With a long bar that stretches the length of the restaurant and is a great place to relax before or after dinner with a cocktail from a highly trained mixologist. Enjoy a cosmopolitan at sunset or a whisky sour as you pass the night away.
The restaurant is fairly hard to find in the middle of the old town of Istanbul off the Taksim square and down a steep hill of an alley until eventually you see the logo on the side of a dishevelled building. Like finding a hidden gem in a dark cave the restaurant is high above these old dark streets and in a completely other world to the people on below. You will be amazed at the view of Bosphorus and the Golden Horn.
