Leb-i Derya

Bar in Beyoğlu

On the top floor of a dishevelled building off İstiklal, Leb-i Derya has wonderful views across to the Old City and down the Bosphorus, meaning that seats on the small outdoor terrace or at the bar are highly prized. Many people enjoy the pricey modern Mediterranean food on offer, but we aren't impressed, so only recommend it as a bar.
