A very small restaurant therefore it is hard to make a reservation. The food is very good. The view very very nice. The staff friendly. The prices were a bit higher than expected. I would recommend it.

My first time was much better, so romantic, so chic.. The food was still nice, well presented and tasty.. (More choice for the desserts will be appreciated..)Service was average, no like the first time.. no ''affinity" or simple question " if we need something.." (still like the first time...) The restaurant was full and no very quiet..I'm a bit disappointed,... More

The restaurant with its roof top location is a must visit. I loved the food and the way it was presented. Furthermore, price wise it is a very affordable and good value for money. Reccommended!!!

We really enjoyed the Imbat experience- lovely view, great food and attentive, friendly service. The bukme goats cheese starter was delicious. There were 3 vegetarian options for main meals, the tagliatelle alfredo was lovely, although not very Turkish!

The food was very good, tasty, well done, fresh and people really kind. Not the cheapest in town (for Istanbul standards, we paid like 20€ each) and meals are not as big as in other places. But the views are good and it was quiet, ideal for dinner, romantic and special nights.

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.
