While walking throughout the Sultanahmet district, we strolled upon this amazing restaurant. The decor is artsy with a historical feel. The wood burning fire will warm you quickly from the freezing cold during the winter months. We were welcomed by the entire staff, specifically by our server Nikka who was very accommodating and friendly. She recommended many dishes on the... More

This restaurant is located right at the very center of the touristic area, yet remain quiet with a relaxed atmosphere. All dishes were excellent, especially the seafood! Due to its location, you can enjoy a superb walk around Ayasofya by night after dinner :)

This restaurant is located in the area that is full of restaurants, tourists, etc. To our surprise, the food was excellent, as was the service. It is very nice inside also, with a frescoed ceiling and fireplace. The mezze were great. We had 3 of the mezze with fresh bread, and the lamb kebabs and the meatball with vegetables. Definetely...

We choose this restaurant because the man on the street said he wouldn't hassle us but he knew he had the best food and I'm inclined to believe him. They weren't pushy but yet gave us a solid Turkish meal. I would pass on the wine, but enjoy the oil, bread and olives. Great vegetarian options!

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.
