There is a narrow bit of road that a single car can get through and that gives a noisy vibe to the out front seating. Bruce had asked us to try his shop out when we arrived, so tonight we went in. He wanted us to enjoy the roof seating highlighting his Mamara Sea views, but we din't want to... More

We went there lunch time and had a table outside and at this time of the day it was quite noisy with the cars and vans passing just next to us. We ordered the soup of the day and the waiter gave us the option between lentils soup or tomato soup. We choose lentils soup and he brought us the... More

After being touted off the street the previous night we shook hands with the host and promised to return. When we did we were given complimentary entree of traditional Turkish bread and dips. Simple Turkish/Ottoman cuisine with fantastic service from attentive wait staff. Would eat there again!

This is our choice for breakfast, dining and casual drinks. The restaurant industry in Sultanahmet is very competitive but Kosk is our absolutely preferred place.

We had been here 4 years ago and tried to find it again. Good value, just off the tourist strip. Authentic Turkish dishes and friendly service.

We have been passing by this restaurant for the past 5 days, as it is located right infront of our Hotel Zoe Empress. We finally decided to have our last lunch here, and it is one of our very best. The seafood casserole, the Ottoman beef casserole and the Sultan's Favorite Chicken dish are exceptionally good. Especially served with rice!... More

This restaurant is only a few minutes walk away from Hagia Sophia but is down a small side street so away from the main crowds. It's also right next to the main strip of bars and restaurants within the old town. Simple food but really tasty. I wouldn't go for an evening meal but for lunch I couldn't fault it.... 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.
