The view!!! That's what this place is about! The food is rather average and pretty expensive. The service was good and friendly. As we came with a baby stroller waiters helped us with bringing it up and down, that was very nice. When the weather is good you just have to spend your time enjoying... read more

I was there with a friend in the middle of the day, amaing views, amazing views.... we just had few crisp cold beers of Efes since we had reservation for another restaurant. Beers were not cheap but add the cost of views it certainly worths every penny of it. I cannot stop thinking about this spot how incredible it would... More

We spent four nights and the Seven Hills Hotel. the hotel and restaurant staff were extremely friendly. There is a lovely breakfast buffet with fabulous views of the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia and the Bosporous. Enjoyed delicious fish for dinner. This is the best view you can find anywhere in the Sultanamet area.

I always have at least one meal here when I visit Istanbul. I have never been disappointed. The staff are friendly, food is good and the view is great.

We decided to spoil ourselves for at least one evening in Istanbul with an extravagant dinner. We decided on this restaurant due to reviews on how amazing the view is. Granted, the view is one you will not easily find in Istanbul (360 degrees) and is absolutely worth seeing. That is also the only reason I rate this restaurant with... More

Well worth a visit if you are in/near Saltanahmet Square as it's just round the corner. You take the lift in the very chic main hall and go to the top floor. The terrace restaurant has tables both inside and out with a spectacular view of both sides of the square. Prices are moderate for such a nice place and... More

This week, I came for a seafood dinner & loved the rooftop restaurant's 360 degree view. Just spectacular! It was chilly eating outside in November and the restaurant doesn't provide outdoor heaters. I wore a jacket, and the waiter offered a shawl to put over my shoulders, which made a nice difference! I ordered the Fried Calamari appetizer & the... More

Located right next to the sights in Sultanahmet, provides amazing view to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and to all the sights around there...and also to the sea of Marmara. The staff was really helpful, trying to give us blankets for the cold weather. We ordered Turkish coffee which was really tasteful

It does have one of the best views around the area. It was great to have both ancient monuments right there in front of me during the meal, but what a horible food. I ordered the most expensive dish with meat and It came with about 4 different meats from the menu. All 4 were horribly gross. Flat, no taste... More

We went here on a recommendation and it was crowded on the rooftop. However the food was indifferent and overpriced for what it was. The waiter was insistent on pushing the terribly overpriced seafood. Views of the Blue Mosque, but that it about it.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
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.
