Rocca Restaurant at Raffles

The newly opened Raffles Hotel at Zorlu Center located on the premises of the prestigious Zorlu Center is set to shake Istanbul’s gastronomic scene with a number of bars as well as two distinct restaurants. Even a quick first glance reveals that Raffles’ motto, ‘passion to exceed’, seems immersed into the culture of their newest branch. Rocca Restaurant, located on the entrance floor, has indeed exceeded our expectations, and will surely set a new standard for hotel dining experiences across the city. Rocca Restaurant’s executive chef is Ali Ronay, whose past ties with the Kitchen Guerilla and Gastronomika are balanced with his extensive experiences at the Kempinski Barbaros Bay in Bodrum, the Ritz Carlton Istanbul and the Dionysos Hotel in Kumlub├╝k, Marmaris, to name a few. The menu he has exclusively created and will be heading up at Rocca restaurant is an ode to the excellent service, the grandeur and the authentic flavors of Istanbul’s old upscale lokantas. In their newly developed a la carte menu, Ronay and his team reworked Turkish flavors according to their inquisitive palates and aesthetic sensibilities.
