We went there on late April 2014 and were so impressed with the dishes. I missed the name card so that's why this post is late... :) Too bad we tried two kinds of the meals only and both of them were perfect!!! Beside the fish, we love everything in this restaurant. Nice design, good service and the owner is... More

Service was good but there were not a lot of fish items on the menu. Food was good and I would go back to this restaurant again.

We had just arrived at the Levni Hotel and stumbled across this restaurant for dinner. The food, in particular the meze of dips to start, was delicious. Ercan was very attentive throughout our meal and chatted to us and amused our 11 year old son. Highly recommended for the food and service.

The food was very good. Although the portions were a little to big for 2 people. My parents ordered a seafood plate for 2 and it was too much. Other than that the food and service were great. I ordered the grilled chicken and it was very good!

Went to eat here after reading the recommendations but was disappointed. The owner offered a refund , was very attentive and even changed the dish to another one , however it failed to impress as well.

Great small restaurant for seafood with personal attention from the owner Mr. Oktay. The food was good and was not that expensive. I recommend it if you are in Sultanahmet area, in Istanbul.

This restaurant has added to my splendid memories of Istanbul. We are expert in fish, so believe me, you will not be disappointed to eat fish in this small, very nicely furnished restaurant, with kind and friendly staff, situated in a strategic point in Sultanhamet, close to the main monuments, but not too close to hear noises, so you may...

My Wife and I visited this restaurant on a recent visit to Istanbul. We did book in advance and I would suggest that this is a good idea , as it is not large and was full on the evening we were there. The service was very good and nothing was too much trouble. The wine list was adequate, although... More

Having had so many excellent meals at a large number of cafes and restaurants in Turkey over the past four weeks I've probably been both lucky and spoiled. However tonight's meal at Sultanahmet Fish House wasn't particularly special for me, unfortunately. I don't like giving bad reviews especially when the owner and staff are friendly and helpful but if they... More
