Anjelique - Fabulous views at the coolest place in Istanbul

the view in the evening as the sun sets and you are enjoying your mojitos
If you want to experience summer nights on the lap of the Bosphorus, Anjelique, bar, restaurant and night club situated in a three story yali (house by the sea) in Ortakoy, is the perfect place for you.
You should arrive around 7.00 pm to enjoy drinks on the terrace and watch the sunset.  I hear their mojitos are superb.

as night falls, the bridge and the baroque Ortakoy mosque are illuminated  shining like diamonds on the water
After the sunsets, you can enjoy a great meal from their rich menu of world cuisine.  Their portakalli ordek  (duck a l'orange) is one of my husband's not-to-be-missed recommendations.   My son and nephew were there last week and they couldn't stop raving about each and every single delicacy they had from the hors d'oeurves to the delectable chocolate souffle for desert.

the illuminated view of the Bosphorus bridge and Ortakoy mosque is the backdrop to the music of world famous DJs
Once the music starts, the sophisticated restaurant turns into a world-class night club.  Dancing under the stars on the shores of the Bosphorus is on my list of zesty moments to savor in Istanbul.
A perfect beginning or ending to a fairy-tale evening would be to arrive or depart from this incredible place with the boat service going back and forth between the two shores of the Bosphorus.

There is also a good review on if you want to get a feel for the place.
