City Cuisine Style Michelin Stars Elite Traveler Andy Hayler


Style / Ambiance: Located on the rooftop floor of the fashionable Marmara Pera Hotel, its sublime views over Istanbul include the Hagia Sophia and the Topkapi Palace.

With retro chrome 1950s and 1970s furniture and a bar made from wooden rail-sleepers, Mikla is urban, sleek and stylish. The unique menu reflects the Turkish-Scandinavian background of Chef-Owner Mehmet Gürs, who pioneered the contemporary restaurant scene in Istanbul. Gürs skillfully merges Turkish and Scandinavian cooking techniques, producing delicacies such as raw grouper with olives and lemon, and a Turkish coffee vanilla slice with raspberry sorbet. The roof terrace bar of Mamara Pera is perfect for pre-dinner drinks. Inhale soft jasmine scents and sip on a generously measured martini as you watch the sun set on this historic city.
