Had a salad,which was plenty for two, and the fish casserole. Although good, neither were exceptional. Service was attentive and the place seemed very popular. Perhaps some of the other dishes have earned this place its high TA rating.

We went there because we saw the reviews in Tripadvisor, so we believed that it's gonna be good and we didn't make a mistake. We recomend it since the fish is fresh, they are very polite and the prices are reasonable.

I was apprehensive when the salt crusted sea bass arrived at our table and the waiter set it on fire as if it were cherries jubilee. One bite convinced me that my concerns were unwarranted. It was a "wow" moment. The wait staff was attentive to our needs and my wife and I enjoyed talking to them as their time... More

Recommended by our hotel (Neorion), we had a very nice dinner at the Sultanahmet Fish House. Our google map didn't reflect the actual layout of the old city and we only found the restaurant by accident. The restaurant was small and cozy although there might have been an additional room upstairs. It felt more like a neighborhood restaurant than a... More

Ate here with family - 2 small kids. Great food. Husband and daughter had the salt baked fish (great to watch them preparing) and said it was great. Son and I ate a selection of vegetarian meze (yeah, fish restaurant was wasted on us, but its always a pleasant surprise to also find good vegetarian food in a fish restaurant!).... More
