Great experience!

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... read 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

What a view! You can see Aya Sofia, Sultanahmet Mosque, Bosporus and sea of Marmara! Food is ok, just had to wait a little bit longer then in other restaurants.

We have eaten here a number of times and each time it has been delicious. The views are breath-taking and usually that means that the food isn't good but this restaurant is different---excellent!

Gorgeous!!! Views 360 of the Bosphorus Strait and Blue Mosque Hagia Sophia.......... Staff and beyond welcoming! Food wonderful wine lovely. Expensive wine however you are up paying slightly for the views. Definitely a must see when you visit Istanbul at night time even if just for one drink to admire the sunset!

Enjoyed a glass of wine watching the sun set over the Blue Mosque, doesn't get any better! Our waiter, Ismail was a great source of helpful information. Truly a must do.

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.
