Nicole Restaurant – Tomtom Suites Istanbul


In 1901, the present building was built as the Soeurs Garde-Malades (Nursing Sisters) Apartment where Franciscan nuns lived. The building, which also hosted the Levantine and Greek families until the end of 1920s, had been damaged over the years due to changes in hands and neglect. In the early 2000s, a major restoration work started in the district and thus it became the city’s cultural, artistic, entertainment and gourmet center. The building has been restored with great respect to its origins, giving it an enchanting appearance.

Nicole Restaurant, located on the top floor of the building, is named after one of the former owners of the building, nun Agnés Marthe Nicole.

Established with inspiration from the building’s historical past and today’s modern reflections, Nicole Restaurant aims to provide guests unforgettable culinary experiences on its stylish terrace presenting a breathtaking Istanbul view by blending the Traditional Turkish Cuisine concept with a unique contemporary interpretation.
