My wife an I came out of our hotel (Biz Cavahir - separate review) and 20 metres away was The Meat House. We were tired from travelling and took a chance. We were so glad we did! We went for a traditional starter and shared and it was delicious and the bread - oh my word! Main courses did not... More

Food was EXCELLENT! Really delicious and varied. The service was friendly and the price was really good. Our meal came to 130 Turkish lira for 2 beers, a big bottle of water, 1 starter and 2 mains. We also left a tip. Well worth a visit if you're in the Sultanamhet area.

When I see a restaurant filled with elder turkish gentlemen I see that as a quality stamp. And I have not been wrong with that theory in ten years. Go there and enjoy real turkish food and a familiar feeling. Good food seldom comes with a small bill but this one does.

This restaurant is a little out of the way and doesn't look like much. But the service was very good and the food was tasty and filling. Very good value considering it's near the tourist area. You have to like cats though, as the restaurant is very tolerant of them.

I am a Turk living abroad and visited this restaurant on a trip with my husband. The place had raving reviews so we thought we'd give it a try. The food has nothing to with Turkey, it is kebab, adapted to the taste of the tourists. Cheap meat, no flavor, I have had better kebabs in London. Even the cat... More

Back in Istanbul, we dined at meat house on our first night and were not disappointed.The service was very professional yet extremely welcoming, remembering our visit last year. We started with the fried eggplant dish and yoghurt and watercress dish; mains were... 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.
