We were looking for a nice restaurant to wrap up the Istanbul leg of our trip. Found Seven Hills Restaurant on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a go. We had our hotel make reservations for us on a Fri evening - highly recommend reservations, plenty of walk-ins were turned away. Well, actually... read more

We had a great time at this place. Not only because of the food but also thanks to this very professional and entertaining waiter Serdal. Plus the view is terrific.

We expected much more based on the many positive reviews. It was good but other than the spectacular view, it was just OK. The food was solid. We ordered a meat casserole which was not on the menu. We saw it being brought out to the neighbouring table. It smelt amazing and it was very good. Beware that the menu... More

We chose the restaurant because we could see the terrace from the street and thought it would have fantastic views of Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque in the setting sun. We were right! The location was perfect! We had delicious seafood and great service from the waiters- especially Ismail. We had swordfish kebabs which were grilled to perfection. We... More

Seven Hills Restaurant is maybe the highest spot in this area. We went there for dinner and especially chose to go in Ramadan because they have the high up hanging lights between the minarets( Mahya) then. When the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia's lights are lit at sunset,the view with the reddish sea at distant is really breathtaking. They... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
