Lovely restaurant with a stunning roof terrace overlooking the Marmara Sea and the blue mosque on the other side. Recommended by our family run hotel owner because it had local food and local prices. If you want traditional Turkish food, friendly staff without the tourist premium, do try this... read more

Great Turkish food particularly the pide and on the 5th floor terraces fantastic views of Blue Mosque (get the postcard view you can't get any where else). Then low prices and cheerful staff. Perfect.

Arriving late to Istanbul, our hotel suggested Doy Doy as it was close and served traditional Turkish Cuisine. The terrace view of the Blue Mosque was amazing and also gives a great view of the Marmara sea. Friendly local staff are able to converse in English, the food was of a reasonable price and good portion sized. We ate here... More

For us, no visit to Istanbul is complete without visiting Doy Doy at least once. The food is excellent, very fairly priced and the views from the top floor terrace are excellent.

The food is excellent, and the service is great. Be sure to climb to the terrace for the view! My favorite dish was the stuffed eggplant, although the kebab is also excellent!

We were told by the hotel staff to visit this restaurant. The food was very average. The meat they served was of inferior quality. The Pita Pizza was average. The service was very average too. The view from the rooftop was really good. The prices of food were average. The best thing they served was Kunafe (Turkish dessert), this was... 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.
