This is a perfect choice to have the best view of Blue Mosque and Hayia Sofia. The food is good. You should try the fried calamari.

The setting and views are second to none in this old part of Istanbul. Views of the Blue mosque, the Hagia Sofia and Bosphorus are hard to surpass, especialy at sunset. But they got it so wrong on all the other parts, Old and tired decor, and the same for the waiters. Most of the meze platters are pre-prepped and... More

Within a few blocks if the Blue Mosque is the restaurant with arguably the best view of Istanbul. Overlooking where the Golden Horn and the Bosporus join with the Haga Sofia and Blue Mosque on the inland side, dinner at 7 Hills is a magical experience. Be prepared for good to excellent food (if you have time the salt baked... More

The restaurant is reasonably priced and has a fantastic view and service. You can have a 360 degree view of Istanbul from here. A popular place for sunset dinner. Our waiter, Yilmaz was great and knowledgable with the menu!

Title says it all really although I should add that the service came across as a little disjointed at times as well. Need to book to get the best viewing tables.

We went for a drink and mezze. We got a reasonable table. The views are spectacular, as good as you will get in the historical area of Istanbul. We went traditional start to the meal; rake and mezze. The mezze was very average and when I went to the ladies I saw lines of each dish, prepared and ready for... More

Rooftop "restaurant" with unique and stunning views across the Marmara Sea on the one side and over Haya Sofia and the Blue Mosque on the other. The highest "restaurant" in old Istanbul. Not built in, canvas roof. Go there for drinks in the mid afternoon, and so avoid the crush and the truly awful food and service that is dished... More

We were looking for a roof top restaurant in Sultanahmet, and Seven Hills was the perfect choice. Their roof top is higher than the other buildings nearby, so you have an uninterrupted view of the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and the Bosphorus, and you look down over the Four Seasons Hotel. We hadn't realized it was a seafood restaurant, but... More

You won't miss this fabulous restaurant, just look up from the square in-between Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque. The most prominent restaurant on a terrace is Seven Hills! Wonderful food, impeccable service, special thanks to Nusret and Murat, and unbelievable view. You will see Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque, Marmara Sea, Bosphorus in the best possible way, and away from crowds.... More

We made a reservation for dinner at 7:30pm and enjoyed the view over Istanbul as the sun gradually set. As for the food, this is a seafood restaurant and if you don't like fish, I would eat elsewhere. We had the sea bream which was pricy, but beautifully cooked. Drinks and food were expensive, but I guess you're paying for... More
