Situated in the corner of two streets SirEvi terrace has somewhat more room around it, which make it more peaceful than others on the same street. Chairs and tables are bulky enough two help you concentrate enjoying meal, and the tables are spaciously positioned to give your group some privacy. The personnel will willingly join tables for your company. The... More

I tried a few places in Sultanahmet, which is a very touristy, over priced place, and this was far far better than anything I tried. The food was delicious, authentic and service and pricing reasonable. I really thought this was a "genuine" Turkish restaurant rather than others around it targeting tourists and therefore more "western". I would recommend trying this... More

Exquisite Turkish food served in great atmosphere in old Sultanahmet, Istanbul. Staff very friendly and respectful. Shepherd's meat with vegetables and served in an iron dish was wonderful. Salad with feta cheese provided a great starter.

Great restaurant out of the many on offer in the old town area of Istanbul. Dishes are beautifully served and delicious. House wine is very good, reasonable and worth ordering. Really nice english speaking professional owner was there when we visited and had made himself a wonderful salad for his own dinner which he promptly shared with us!!

We visited this restaurant on our second night in Istanbul and we loved it. The staff were so friendly and attentive, the food was wonderful and the atmosphere was great. Excellent live music, great outdoor seating area and extremely friendly waiters. We liked it so much we went back again on our last night. We will definitely visit next time... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
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.
