Inspired by the fire burning year-round in our kitchen, we expand our menu and our discoveries in taste according to the spirit and ingredients of each season. Mürver is a kitchen where different cooking techniques and regional recipes are discussed and reinterpreted with local ingredients around an open flame.
Fire is the protagonist of our story.
Sea is the most vital source for our kitchen.
Earth and Anatolia are its biggest miracle, providing crops, ingredients, as well as the labour and recipes of growers.
We cook over fire.
We incorporate aromatic herbs both at our open-flame wood-fired grill and in our brick oven, serving daily fish and seafood from the Fish Market as well as cuts of meat which are aged, dried, and smoked in-house.
Since our opening in 2017, our most beloved dishes have become Mürver classics in their own right, earning themselves a permanent spot on our menu. The ‘Trakya Kıvırcık’, Ash-Grilled Octopus, and the decadent ‘Yanık Sütlaç’ with oven-baked pudding and ice cream are some of the signature dishes from our menu, which highlights the best ingredients of every season.
Mürver’s inventive, comfortable, and modern décor features materials like wood, marble, sheet metal, and copper, accompanied by a touch of greenery as well as fantastic views of the Historic Peninsula, Topkapı Palace, and the sea.
and gathering around a table,
the clinking of glasses accompanied by laughter,
food—and, naturally, fire…
We love sharing and equality.
Understanding. Loving as is. Experimenting.
Discussing the miracle of food and regionality
with ingredients provided by the earth, water, sun, and labour.
We love learning, changing, and diversity…
