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

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.

oversold my guests and intimidating them to buy way more than they needed..like showing us a seven pound fish and then bringing us the whole fish rather than a fair portion of a piece of fish for lunch..Great view but across the street you get both great service and excellent view of Ayasofya

The Restaurant really offers the best view of Old Istanbul. Overlooking the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia you can not get something better, specially if you go for dinner and admire the sunset over the spires of the Mosque. The service is excellent and the food is good for a typical tourist place. The staff is very friendly and you... More

The view from the terrace cafe is to die for. You can see both the Asian and European side of Istanbul from here. The food is good, if not great. The stewards were attentive & quick.

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.
