We headed up to the terrace for fabulous views of the blue mosque and the old city. I had the fabulous kebab and the fruit plate after was delicious. Great understated service and very reasonable.

Great food, good prices, good service and a romantic view of the Bosphorus Strait, the Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque. Great at night or day.

If you are not looking for fancy food and want a nice place with great view a totally recomend it!! We decided to have a romantic dinner with a view on our last night in Istanbul, and this was perfect! Food, drinks and service is ok, nothing expectacular, but we had good food and a lovely view to remember.

Incredible views of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia from their white tableclothed rooftop area. We didn't eat, but had lovely wine whilst watching the sun come down over the incredible buildings right next to us. A MUST when in Istanbul just for the wine and the view.

Roof top restaurant is the perfect setting for a leisurely lunch, dinner, or bottle of rose with mezza's. View is spectacular. I go every time I am in Istanbul and it never disappoints.

Agreeing with other reviewers about the view is done without hesitation. The views from this roof top restaurant-day or night-are amazing and unforgettable. Unfortunately the food is quite forgettable. The wine list comes on a plastic card. There are a number of choices but only one red and one white is sold by the glass. Since I was dining alone...

The restaurant is situated on the top floor of the Arcadian Blue Hotel and has excellent views of the Blue Mosque and the Marmara Sea. The décor is ordinary but the view makes up for it with full length windows right across the front. The night I was there they had live music as in traditional music played by an... More

We chose this restaurant because of it's location next to the Blue Mosque and overlooking the city and Strait. It was relatively small and intimate - so romantic. The food and drinks were delicious; the service was impeccable and friendly. As sunset the views towards the illuminated Blue Mosque were amazing. When the call to prayer started, I thought I...

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.
