Good for drinks and view

We were solicited on the street to try this place but saw the reviews on the food were questionable. However, we wanted to see the view and went up for just drinks. The view is good. There were a lot of others doing the same as us. The food that we passed smelled good and looked okay. It's tough... read more

After a quite busy morning visiting the Topkapi Palace we decided to have a break and enjoy a terrace due to the very good weather that day. We saw the restaurant from far and we just decided to reach it. The restaurant is located on top of the hotel with the same name. The Sultanahmet area is the same area... More

Amazing views from what we suspected to be a tourist trap and we weren't disappointed. Subpar food in spectacular setting. Go for a sunset drink if you can but avoid getting trapped into a meal.

Loved everything - the restaurant is on top of a hotel in between Hagia Sophia and the blue mosque. Fantastic views. Service was exemplary and the fish was awesome. We had paso dolmasi, sea bass, and swordfish.

The best views in all Istanbul - one side the sea and the other side the Haghia Sophia and Blue Mosque. Mostly seafood, well-prepared with flare. Lively atmosphere. Highly recommend.

One of the best rooftop restaurant to enjoy the view of hagia sophia and blue mosque. very crowded for a rather small restaurant. service was average and you got the feeling that you were expected to leave for faster turnover. A bit hot during noon time. Breakfast and late afternoon coffee would be perfect

A near total fish menu with stunning rooftop terrace. Our party shared the grouper fish which was cooked to perfection and presented well. The team are all exceptionally friendly and helpful with recommendations.

I and my wife have been in Istanbul five times, and every time is a new adventure. Having visited most of the main cities around the world, we believe Istanbul to be the best of all. Hills, seas, people, safety, food....a unique mixture of feelings that can satisfy any desire. We are used to walk all the day, with a... More
