Eminent flavours of the Mediterranean Cuisine which has been the symbol of abundance and fertility for centuries, is being integrated with the most romantic sight of the Bosphorus. Since 1999 Lacivert Restaurant has been furnishing its services in a historical twin waterside mansion at the Bosphorus, at a spectacular quay during the summer months, and in cosy saloons with windows that hold the scene with their new designs during the winter months.
Today, this historical twin waterside mansion at the Anatolian Fortress that is integrated with “Lacivert Restaurant”, is a venue that most of us is familiar with. This mansion has hosted several black and white or coloured Yeşilçam movies in the previous years. From Türkan Şoray to Filiz Akın, Yılmaz Güney to Tarık Akan, several famous artists have performed in the movies that were filmed in this mansion.
Lacivert is established in 1999. Today, Lacivert is being regarded among the top 10 venues of Istanbul and it has been a long time since it has proved that it is lasting. Lacivert Restaurant is the work of Önder Köse who is a photograph artist. He is also liable for the administration of the venue at the same time.
It is a venue that is open throughout the year with its menu that varies according to the season. Its large garden, where green and blue meet, brings all beauties of the Bosphorus starting from the spring months. The service starts at noon hours and continues till late night. Quay bar is a romantic option for the appetizers during the sunset hours. The music prepared by DJ Canan is particularly for Lacivert and it integrates with the ambiance throughout the day.
The kitchen of Lacivert is under the management of Executive Chef Hüseyin Ceylan since the first day. Young, dynamic, and experienced team is assigned at the saloons. Lacivert Restaurant gives a distinctive importance to Turkish Cuisine as well. We are keeping the flavours that are among the classics of our cuisines, in the forefront of each new menu. We are injecting a brand new dynamism to our kitchen team by inviting foreign chefs and thus, we are giving the opportunity of brand new experiences that may be a benefit for the Turkish cuisine. Since 2005 Chef Cristian Plumail who is also the owner of a known restaurant that carries his name, with Michelin star in France-Nice, has been working with our Chef Hüseyin Ceylan from time to time. Moreover, the very well known Chef Miguel Sanchez Romera who has an award winning restaurant titled L’Esguard near Spain-Barcelona worked with our kitchen team in 2007.
Our journey shall continue with new projects. Bon appetite to everyone.
