This restaurant has views all over the city and the water. Visit even if it's just for a drink, but the food is wonderful and the staff friendly and efficient, great value for money especially considering the location. Always a fantastic selection of fresh fish to choose from.

The view over the main attractions and waterways of Istanbul is the attraction here and one could almost forgive the huge mark up on a bottle of wine that normally retails for 20 TL. The calamari and fish stew are good and the food is reasonably priced, as is the tea. Staff provide shawls to keep patrons warm as the... More

I have an affinity for roof top bars so I was pleasantly surprised when a friend and I stumbled upon Seven Hills. This was the third or fourth rooftop we visited in Istanbul and it was by far the most beautiful. The first time we visited Seven Hills we stopped by for a glass of wine and appetizer and were...

This rooftop restaurant sits between Ayasofya and the blue mosque and also has view on the Topkapi palace. On the other side is the view of Bosphorus & you will surely be impressed with the food. The food was good, but the experience was amazing.

We stumbled upon it by accident while walking to Ayasophia. But the view was magnificent. Price is expensive though. And the waiters are very persistent in pushing the more expensive stuff. Be insistent and try other stuff. Although the choices of food is limited and many items are priced by seasonal weight.

This is without doubt the best place for watching Istanbul, day or night. Pity that the food is so disappointing. The sole I had the first time (out of 3 visits--the view is really wonderful), although I had asked whether it would come without any coating, was battered to death. The second time we went the food was expensive but... More

Beautiful view, but poor food sanitation. Although its great to see your fish and pick it, a day of diarrhea and vomiting later, it seems like a really great way to pick your own bacteria laden fish. Either that or they washed the salad in Istanbuls non-potable water. Maybe just stick to bottled water here to enjoy the view.

Heard about this place from some reviews for one of the best view of Blue Mosque (Sultanahmet) and Hagia Sophia. So we made our way there (my husband & I). We went there around 6-ish just a perfect time for the golden hour (sunset). It was amazing and stunning. The Blue Mosque & Hagia Sophia standing just right in front... More

We chose this rooftop restaurant for its views over the water to the Asian shore and of the close-by Blue Mosque. The grilled fish platter was excellent, as was the service. Romantic.....and good value for money
