Overpriced and average, but worth a visit.

The position of this place is the only reason to pay it a visit. The restaurant is overpriced, 38 Euro for one cappuccino, one coffee and a local beer. My cappuccino was less than average too! I do not regret going there, though... The sweeping views of the Bosforous, Hagia Sophia and the Blue... read more

I visited this restaurant with a mate and we were blown away with the views. In addition the meal was excellent, the service great and the price reasonable. Rather than choose from the menu I asked for two different mezzes .. one fish and one vegetarian. We dined in style for around two hours.

As you wander through the Sultanahmet in Istanbul you are constantly regaled by the owners of roof top restaurants with offers of the best view over the Bosphorus etc. Often exaggerated and even unfounded but the Seven Hills really does have spectacular views over the Bosphorus, the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Not only that but the food is excellent.... More

I can't recommend this place highly enough. Come at sunset for the most beautiful views and wonderful experience you've ever had. Ask for Ismail - you won't regret it.

Ismail made our visit to this top class restuarant extra special!! We had the salt baked fish and it was 'melt in your mouth' delicious. We would highly recommend this restuarant to any seafood lover......

Visiting Istanbul with two friends and we went to Seven Hills on a recommendation. The view was absolutely magical: the Blue Mosque, Ayasofya, and a full moon reflecting off the Bosphorus. Our food and wine was quite good (shrimp casserole, pazi dolmasi, and chicken kabob). The highlight of the evening was our delightful server Serdal. He was attentive, gracious in... More

Had a wonderful meal with my daughter while visiting Istanbul for the first time. Unparalleled views, one of the largest/most delicious lobsters we've ever seen, and impeccable service from our server, Ismail. Truly a perfect evening!

This review is based on two evening meals. A meal of mezes and wine on the day we arrived from California exhausted and another more complete dinner meal. OK, it not the cheapest place you can eat at, but we had no surprises as to the bill. The second evening meal we decided to order a entire grilled fish selecting... More

Located in the Blue Mosque complex, this restaurant is located on the terrace of the highest building in the area. Great food, great service. Very crowded and waiting for a table is a given.

The rooftop at this restaurant is gorgeous. The sunset is unbeatable and you can see both the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia as you enjoy some wine and your meal. It feels very elegant and upscale, true luxury. The food itself is very expensive and the portions are small, and it's not in keeping with the prices in the... 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.
