If I was leaving nearby I would be a regular. All dishes were excellent - the one I would highly recommend is the octopus casserole.

I was desperately looking for a restaurant to take my customers around Sultanahmet and found this restaurant. They were quite helpful. The food was fresh and tasty. My customers also loved the atmosphere. The prices are high but not absurdly, it is normal for the area. Overall, we should have more of these nice little restaurants in Istanbul.

The commercial looking outside belies a very attractive local restaurant. They certainly know how to cook their fish with many varieties including local favorites. Grilled salmon was quite delicious!

Delicious food and nice atmosphere. The real highlight for us though was how friendly the waitstaff was. Our baby (8 months old) was unhappy with sitting in the highchair so the waiters took turns carrying him around and playing with him. They went the extra mile to make sure our meal was wonderful!

Friendly service Grilled Sea Bream very good, swordfish skewers seemed a little over seasoned but quantities ample. Wine choices limited and quite expensive compared to other places With half bottle of wine and starters came to approx £46 but most expensive dinner we had in 4 nights From what we saw of the size of the bass in the salt...

We had a fun evening and great fresh fish at this small, unfussy restaurant steps from the main tourist area. The owner is delightful with helpful suggestions and his own playlist in the background. Hanging lamps, quirky decor, good wine, fresh anchovies (go in November), sea bass and bream. The salt bake extravaganza is quite a show.

A lot of Istanbul seafood restaurants are on streets lined with restaurants featuring touts and picture menus. Sultanahment Fish House is not one of those. It is off on its own not far from Sultanahmet Square. The owner was very welcoming and the service was attentive, especially in comparison to another popular restaurant we tried. It has a friendly atmosphere,... More

2 visit to this restaurant in a month - I liked it so much that I arranged my hotel to be close by! Food is really good and reasonably priced. Ditto the wine - I've paid a lot more for less in Istanbul. The owner is excellent, as are the staff. He's polite and courteous to all the guests and... More

There are not too many seafood restaurants within the historical areas. Most of them are located on the Gatala Bridge, which are very touristy and not too inviting for us. We liked how it looked from the Tripadvisor, so we tried this one. The setting was quite simple, but the foods were great. Unlike most of other restaurants (not specialized... More
