X Restaurant & Bar is located on the top floor of the historical Deniz Palace in Şişhane, the headquarters of the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV).
Guests enjoy an exquisite menu conceived by Rasim Özkanca and the late Şakir Eczacıbaşı, while soaking up one of the most spectacular views in Istanbul.
X restaurant & Bar is a pioneer with its unique style and atmosphere. Designed with acute attention to detail, the interiors showcase extraordinary architectural flair combined with formal and textural touches and acute and wide angles. The design reflects the contours and energy of Istanbul itself, with ceramics crafted by the İznik Education Institute, asymmetric tables and a triangular bar, as well as plates designed by İKSV Director General Görgün Taner and glasses selected from the Paşabahçe Special Series.
Austrian-born executive chef Murat Karaduman perfected his skills in Michelin-starred restaurants in Portugal, Austria and Germany, and with the help of Şakir Eczacıbaşı and Rasim Özkanca he now excels in Turkish Mediterranean fusion.
X Restaurant & Bar provides service seven days a week from 11.30am to 02.00 am. With seating for 90 guests in the winter and 122 in summer thanks to the balcony, the restaurant also has capacity for 70 on the second floor rooftop where guests can enjoy delicious dishes with a cool breeze.
