Among the hustle and bustle of Beyoğlu lies a hidden gem where culinary delight meets breathtaking views at the rooftop of the Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations. The brasserie’s sleek decor complements the city view for an unforgettable dining experience. Not all locations offer this view.
Their menu is extensive, from delectable main courses to enticing desserts. I personally like their Anatolian pizza, chicken schnitzel, rokoko and mascarpone cheesecake, but I haven’t tried all the items on the menu yet. They have the dish of the day and different olive oil dishes daily aside from the items on the menu. You can order just the dessert and coffee or a glass of wine, which also makes Divan Brasserie Beyoğlu an ideal spot for post-dinner rendezvous or casual meet-ups in the daylight. You can find their menu on their website.
A word to the wise: securing a reservation is highly recommended to ensure a table with a view. It is better to visit when the weather is warm as the terrace is usually windy when it is cold.
