The view is outstanding. The food is just OK and pricey for Istanbul standards. I asked for the fish to be filleted, no head, no bones. It arrived looking at me with all of the bones and skin. Just show up for a drink and an appetizer

Eaten at the Seven Hills a couple of times. The view is from the roof terrace is amazing, probably one of the best in Istanbul. The food is also very good and the service is excellent. If you are thinking of eating here - don't think twice, you will have an excellent evening !.

Astonishing view of both the Historic Area (the blue mosque and Hagia Sophia seem at the reach of your hand from here) and the Marmara. The coastline looks lovely at night. We were there twice and we found free tables even in the busiest week in summer, but it might be better to book in advance. We found the place... More

Our family went here for dinner to celebrate our daughters 16th birthday. We had been told that the views from the rooftop were superb, and this is true! However, the dinner was one of the worst we have had in years....mediocre food, horribly overpriced, tepid service - we would never eat here again.

Alcohol in Istanbul is expensive, especially compared to the food. The average cocktail at this place costs around 40 lira, which is comparable to other places but high when you consider that you can get an excellent 2 course meal in Istanbul for under 30 lira. The views at this place are amazing though if you go around sunset -... More

We were enticed into this restaurant by the promise of great views. When we reached the roof terrace, we experienced stunning views of both the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia. Service was good and waiters friendly and attentive. Food was good on our first visit and overall cost was reasonable. We returned the following evening (had forgotten the camera on... More

Yes, the view is great but the food was just ok. They were out of what I wanted so I ordered the bass. I'm not a big fish person but it was pretty good (FYI it's the whole fish...head, tail, scales) but the sides were terrible. It was served with one potato not prepared in any way and a couple...

This place has by far the best views of Istanbul. Great views of the ocean as well as the blue mosque. The food was good but the service was terrible. We waited about half an hour to place an order, the server didn't explain our dishes properly. We didn't have napkins and when we asked for them, it took nearly... More

Incredible view! Look one way and the magnificent Hagia Sofya, turn a few degrees for the Blue Mosque, then turn a few more degrees for the sea view. Stop now! Stand at the top of the stairs, enjoy the view, then find another restaurant for an enjoyable dining experience. The dishes were attractive and interesting but not memorable. The service?... More

Seven Hills Restaurant occupies the top floor and roof terrace of the Seven Hills Hotel, however the fact that the place is full to capacity most nights suggests that a large proportion of the diners are attracted from the surrounding areas by the prospect of enjoying the fabulous views. The restaurant advertises itself as a sea food restaurant but there... More
