Open since 1994, Sunset Grill & Bar today is one of the leading fine dining restaurants in Istanbul. Located on a hilltop below Ulus Park in the upscale neighborhood of Ulus, we offer a spectacular view of the Bosphorus, Bosphorus Bridge and Asian shoreline.
Initially specializing in “California” cuisine and also preparing the best grilled steaks in Istanbul, different authentic tastes from Turkish cuisine were also added to the menu to respond to the needs of our international clientele.
Noticing the rise in the popularity of Japanese cuisine in the city, in 1999 Sunset was the first restaurant in Istanbul to add a Sushi Bar for the discerning clientele.
Diners in Istanbul were introduced to “New Japanese Cuisine” when Hiroki Takemura, the Master Chef of the internationally acclaimed Nobu Restaurant in London joined Sunset Grill & Bar offering his interpretations of Japanese cuisine. His specialties include a choice of starters and main courses and change according to season.
In 2015, Director of Culinary Innovation Chef Fabrice Canelle has joined the team. He is inspired by nature and brings the finest examples of Mediterranean cuisine. Today, our menu includes a vast selection of specialties from Mediterranean, Turkish and New Japanese cuisines along with Sushi Bar.
At Sunset Grill & Bar, we have a longstanding highly professional and skilled kitchen and wait staff, consistently offering our customers quality service and excellent food.
Besides being a member of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs since 1999, Sunset Grill & Bar is the recipient of several international and domestic awards. In 2002 and 2009, we were selected among the “Best Restaurants in Istanbul” by the Zagat Survey prepared for European cities. We were selected the best restaurant in Istanbul in 2004 by Time Out Istanbul. In 1999, Sunset Grill & Bar was invited to prepare specialties from Turkish Cuisine at the James Beard Foundation’s “Oscars” recognized as one of the major foundations in the gastronomy world.
