My wife and I chose to have dinner at the Seasons Restaurant on our first night at the Four Seasons—Sultanahmet. The restaurant is located in the central courtyard of the hotel, and looks out on the beautifully sculpted gardens that make this hotel special. The meal we enjoyed was one of the very best in recent memory. The atmosphere and... More

We decided to push the boat out book when visiting Istanbul and booked a table at Seasons restaurant in the Four Seasons Hotel Sultanahmet. To be honest, the overall experience was underwhelming. The Four Seasons itself is stunning and lives up to its five star rating and the restaurant, both the inside tables and the tables outside in the courtyard,... More

After a very long day's walk touring all of Istanbul (really, we walked for over 7 hours), we stopped at the Four Seasons as we wanted to take in what we knew would be a very relaxing and welcoming peaceful setting. It did not disappoint. While we could have eaten in the beautiful gardens, we opted for the rooftop terrace... More

Had a wonderful relaxing lunch on the terrace in the hotel's gardens which was once the exercise yard of the prison.

The Seasons restaurant have a great western and Turkish menu. The prices are reasonable for Istanbul and I found the quality of the food very high. The wine menu had local wine which was all excellent. The service great as well. I would highly recommend going to this restaurant

Popped in for lunch after a bit of tourismo & glad we did. Excellent food, great service, lovely, quiet peaceful setting only moments from the main tourist sights. Lahmacun excellent (do try it), seafood & borlotti beans & kebab with the best bulgur wheat ever. Ideal for a decent lunch after Topkapi etc.

We went here because my wife was mad that we didn't stay at the Four Seasons. The food was excellent, the ambience was excellent, and the service was top notch(one tier higher than excellent). We wish we saved room for dessert.

Entering The Four Seasons is like to be in an another world.. here more than ever. The restaurant is in the middle of a luxurious garden where everything is quiet compare to busy Topkapi, Hagya Sophia, the hippodrome and other landmarks at doorstep. Prime service, superior price for a nicely executed cuisine.

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.
