Three weeks ago: a rainy Sunday evening in Istanbul.
Only 30 hours ago it looks like that from the roof of the same place:
A great view on the Bospherus and to the Asian side of Istanbul megacity.

But on the evening we reserved a table at 5.KAT, the atmosphere was a more like on a evening in late autumn - solemnly and gracefully.
So exactly the right atmosphere to have a great candle-light dinner...
5.KAT - the name of the restaurant means 5th floor.
It's in Cihangir, one of the neighborhoods of the Beyoğlu district in Istanbul. The neighborhood there has many narrow streets, a park, and street cafes. It is located between Taksim Square and Kabataş.
The international dishes - and the prices - are on a high level - but in combination with the great atmosphere and staff it was really worth the money.
