Nice food, nice people and service; a bit too pricey

First night in Istanbul, and we dined in this pretty restaurant. Menu is rich and varied. Our kids ate everything with pleasure and we did too, particularly the chef's special dish (mixed grilled meat with veg). We had 4 entrees, 4 main dishes and 2 desserts. No wine. 35 euros each. Lovely... read more

I didn't go to this Restaurant, as the VERY agressive touting for custom in front of the door irritated me so much that I walked away.

We ate here on two occasions and both times were well looked after. Even though our visits were in November, the outside tables were kept warm by powerful wall heaters and blankets if needed. The restaurant is situated in the heart of the tourist area and I would imagine could become very busy during the summer. I would recommend booking... More

We had been on a culinary walking tour earler in the day and just needed something small and satisfying. They accommodated us spendidly despite only having a main course. Lovely table, nice if unspectacular setting, good competent service.

After spending a day seeing the sights, we stopped here for a leisurely evening dining experience. The menu offers many genuine Turkish options. We had cocktails and ordered lamb and a sizzling meat dish and could not eat all we were served.

When you are staying in Sultanahmet for vacation, you can't avoid walking by the Mozaik Restaurant without having a chat with the fun guy in the hat, standing right in front of it. The Mozaik Restaurant is located in a very vivid street that is full of restaurants and people and by night turns into a cool place to spend... More

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.
