    Overall we had a pleasant experience at Mürver but we didn’t realise it was the hotel restaurant of the Novotel which was not what we had anticipated. We found the food to be good but not exceptional and very overpriced for what it was. We both had fish of the day which wasn’t priced on the menu but charged at 1400TL which was double the price of most of the main dishes on the menu so that came as quite a shock. Our service was fine but quite reluctant (ie we weren’t allowed to move tables to be closer to the window even though there were several empty tables around us, and we were also told we couldn’t try any of the wine before we bought by the glass which is very unusual).

    Mürver Restaurant exceeded all our expectations! From the moment we stepped in, we were greeted with warmth and hospitality. Every detail, from the carefully crafted salads to the mouthwatering main course, showcased the chef's expertise and dedication to quality. The seafood, in particular, was divine, served in a sauce that left us craving more. And let's not forget dessert - simply amazing! Our server, Mr. Aykut, was a true gem, attending to our every need with professionalism and a genuine smile. The ambiance was perfect for a delightful evening with my sister, complete with good music and a stunning sea view. Overall, an unforgettable dining experience that I highly recommend to anyone seeking exceptional food and service.

    (Translated by Google) There is nothing to say about Mürver's magnificent menu from Michelin-starred chef Mevlüt. At the same time, it becomes a privileged restaurant with a unique view of Galataport and Sultanahmet Island.

    Michelin yıldızlı Mevlüt şefin elinden Mürver'in muhteşem menüsüne diyecek yok. Aynı zamanda Galataport 'un ve Sultanahmet adasının eşsiz manzarası ayrıcalıklı bir restaurant haline geliyor.
