Ciragan Palace Kempinski

Ciragan Caddesi No. 32 Besiktas, Istanbul 34349, Turkey
19 reviews

You can barely tell that this is a hotel now, and not a palace any longer. Amazing location right on the water and close to historic tourist sights.

    Ortaköylü Kumpir

    0.16 mi from Ciragan Palace Kempinski

    Kumpir is a jacket potato, mixed with lots of butter and topped with a seemingly unlimited amount of toppings. Ortakoy is the home of Kumpir in Istanbul and this small stretch has stall after stall selling them. Hard to choose which is best so just go for the one that takes your fancy -- same goes for the toppings! Follow ...

    Feriye Lokantasi

    0.36 mi from Ciragan Palace Kempinski
    1 review

    Feriye Lokantasi has a formal dining setting both indoors and outdoors but welcomes patrons in casual attire. The food is excellent along with the sweeping views of the Bosphorus Bridge connecting the Europe and Asia continents together. That being said, the best table is outdoors and adjacent to the Bosphorus River.

    9 reviews

    Pierre Loti cafe sits on a hilltop overlooking the upper reaches of the Golden Horn. It takes a ferry and a gondola to get up here but the view along is worth it. Try the Turkish coffee.

    Most tourists don't know what it is but they usually recognize the small tower in the middle of the Bosporus. Originally constructed during the ancient Greek period to monitor traffic on the Bosphorus, the tower has been enlarged and rebuilt by various empires. Today the tower is a fine dining restaurant with one of the most spectacular views of the ...

    Mado is essentially a chain for gourmet Turkish desserts. Turkish ice cream, called dondurma, is especially delicious as its creamy and somewhat chewy. The reason is that it's made with sheep milk. Mado serves many different varieties although pistachio is my favorite. Mado also makes the best sahlep in Istanbul. Sahlep is a winter beverage made from orchid root, vanilla ...

    360 Istanbul

    2.68 mi from Ciragan Palace Kempinski

    360 is by far one of the best clubs in Istanbul, the view is better than the Galata Tower. However it can be hard to find. It's along Istiklal street through a white marble doorway that says "monsieur" on top. A little expensive for my usual weekends out. 30 Lira to get into the club, but you get a free ...

    If you go to Istanbul...YOU MUST try a fish kebab, in turkish "Balik Ekmek". These simple sandwiches are extremely popular and you´ll see little, grill stations set up almost everywhere. On the weekends, you can head to the Galata Bridge and underneath (take the stairs under the bridge) you will find hundreds of people packed along the waterfront restaurants, all ...

    Saray Muhallebicisi

    2.69 mi from Ciragan Palace Kempinski
    6 reviews

    Dessert is a big deal in Turkey and Saray is a classic place to visit. They have branches all over the place but the one on Istiklal is the original. Go for one of the classic dairy desserts (sutlu tatli) or one of pastry dessert such as baklava or kunefe (cheese based but very sweet).

    Even if you don't smoke, it's worth trying the hookah at least once. Turkish hookah bars enjoy a laid back vibe, with Turks puffing away and the sound of bubbling filling the air. The smell is fragrant as most hookah tobacco is flavored. I prefer coffee but I've tried peach, grape and strawberry. Tophane is more of a neighborhood than ...

    I am a huge fan of baklava and grew up eating it at special family dinners so I was really excited about searching for the best baklava in Istanbul. Through research online, I found this place and the place lived up to my expectations. This place has a real old-world vibe to it and is frequented by locals and doesnt ...

    My wife I discovered Canim Cigerim when we were teaching English in Taksim; our students actually brought us there and we were immediately hooked. At Canim Cigerim you ask for the basic dinner. You sit at a table and they bring you roasted tomatoes, onions and plates of greens like mint and arugala. The main course is a seemingly endless ...

    Inci Pastanesi

    2.48 mi from Ciragan Palace Kempinski

    Well, sadly, as I am writing this, I found out that this amazing bakery which had been around since the 1940's, has been forced out of their historical location to make way for more cookie-cutter, characterless modern stores, in an area well on it's way to erasing any cultural context and becoming one more giant strip-mall of the world. Ok, ...
