Time Out says
The panoramic views from the Seraglio Bistro along the Salacak coast are breathtaking. The exquisite menu consists of cuisines from around the world, and along with the morning and evening views, this venue enchants you. Of course with this kind of view it is only natural to accompany it with a glass or two of wine. The spring rolls, Circassian chicken, spinach root with olive oil, fava, and especially the kısır were highlights. For the main course try the Seraglio style steak, beef stroganoff, and the oven cooked chicken with applesauce. Even with unlimited local drinks your bill will average at 60-70 TL. On Sundays they have Turkish style breakfast served throughout the morning. We advise you to try the Beykoz style soup during the evenings, as this venue is open until 03.00 in the morning! The venue holds 60 people, seated and dining, and around 80 including the bar. It also seems like an ideal place for weddings or large events during both the summer and the winter; also, during the summer, there is a garden, which ups the capacity to about 150. With a parking garage solely for Seraglio, parking is not an issue. The interior of the venue is plain, yet impressive. The walls are brick, and at the corner of the venue there is a tree, which represents their passion of nature, along with colorful paintings covering the rest of the walls. During the weekdays, Ezgi-Umut perform with the help of a flute and guitar, on the weekends the Tayfun Turan Band performs, and on Tuesdays there is a Latin night.
