Matbah

Fancy sampling some of the dishes served to Ottoman royalty? Then head to Matbah, one of a growing number of İstanbul restaurants specializing in so-called ‘Ottoman Palace Cuisine’. Drawing on cuisine favored in the Ottoman palace kitchens between the 13th and 19th centuries, the menu changes with the season and features unusual ingredients, such as goose. Set within beautiful surrounds and with traditional live oud music on Friday and Saturday nights, Matbah is one of Istanbul’s premier dining experiences.
