Faros Restaurant became our 'local' place to grab a coffee or a quick meal. Good food, good coffee & great service- Ahmet's a winning waiter! In a good location too- near the Metro, not far from the Blue Mosque or Hagia Sofia.

It is not the first I am going to the Faros Restaurant in Sultanahmet. But this time I have decided to let a comment because the staff really deserves it. First of all, you can find the menu in different languages as English, Turkish, French, Spanish... All the dishes are made only with organic food which is something I never... More

Friendly staff, good menu & good food. A lovely location close to the historic area ideal for some post sight seeing dinner. It's a good spot for people watching & soaking up the city. Love the pitta bread!
