5. Kat

Cihangir Mh., Soğancı Sokak 7, Istanbul, Turkey

An old favourite with the literati, Fifth Floor has a theatrical feel: bright velvets, mismatched furniture, glass beads, huge flower arrangements. The menu is similarly eccentric, with dishes from round the world. Somehow it all works. In summer the action moves to the roof terrace, with its breath-taking Bosphorus view.
