Located on a hilltop in the posh neighborhood Ulus, Sunset Grill & Bar is awe-inspiring both with its food and its stunning views. This longstanding fine-dining venue offers International and Japanese cuisines at its finest in addition to a few select Turkish dishes.
The sushi bar and Chef Takemura’s specials are unquestionably outstanding and are the highlight of Sunset’s menu. Sunset also has probably the largest and most extensive International wine list with rare and expensive wines alongside the more moderately-priced ones. Cigar selections are also available.
The enormous outdoor dining-area and bar are covered with white, triangular canopies, while the lofty indoor dining-area features floor-to-ceiling glass windows. An excellent choice for a business lunch (20% discount offered during lunchtime), a casual afternoon with friends, or an exquisite dinner.
Sunset is definitely one of the best that Istanbul has to offer with its delicious food, top-quality wines, great service, and spectacular views of the Bosphorus.
The restaurant also has a bar where an upscale party, with different DJs playing nightly between Tuesday through Saturday, takes place. All items from the restaurant are also available at the bar, while a special bar menu with such delicacies as Duck Spring Rolls or Grilled Lamb Satay, are present for sustenance.
