Good food at a resonable price.

In the middle of the Sultanahmet, it doesn't look like much, but it was recommended by the hotel. Food was good and reasonable. Service was excellent. They specialize in meat dishes as their name implies.

We were in Istanbul for 4 days. This was by far the best meal we had while there. It was located next to our hotel, the Biz Cevahir Sultanahmet. The salad was very fresh, and we had a lamb dish that was truly amazing. I can't recall the name of the dish, but it reminded me of lomo saltado, which... More

Upon the recommendation by our hotel, we went to this restaurant before taking off to the airport. Lovely fresh bread the size of a balloon were served twice to us first with starters then with our mains. Their lentil soup had a nice kick, the french friends were VERY good and the kebabs (adana, and chicken wings) were tasty and... More

Quiet side street, small restaurant. Nice tasty lunch but lentil soup stands out. Perfectly seasoned and a real deal at 6 TL = $2.00! Go there!

General: - We got 10% discount because we stayed at Mavi Guesthouse. - The place had lots of printed photos with random people (probably restaurant visitors) and printouts of TripAdvisor Awards, which looked like a show-off. - I would come here again and have Adana kebab. Minus: - We took Adana kebab (20 lira) and Sarma Beyti Kebab (35 lira).... More

Everything worked perfect. We got our food fast, though, the restaurant was full of people. Since the owner of the restaurant knew the owner of a guest house where we stayed, we got a discount. Besides, it was free wifi and friendly service

We ate here twice while staying at the nearby Seven Hills Hotel. The food was traditional Turkish fare, not fancy but delicious and very affordable. The service was prompt and courteous, I believe the owner was there and he was a very gracious host. There are a lot of small (<15-20 tables) restaurants in the area to choose from, we... More

I came here as it was close by and wanted a meal with meat. I ordered a beer and the meat casserole as the picture looked good. The beer was served in a warm glass that must have come straight out of the washer which meant it was warm after two minutes. I only drank half. The meat casserole was... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
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.
