Well prepared and presented food, attentive and helpful service, real good wine recommendation and great, great views. Fine dining but not expensive. Restaurants, and the tourist industry are suffering from the off season and the bomb last week near the Blue Mosque. A great time to enjoy Istanbul!

The food was a delight, with careful presentation. Coupled with a beautiful view of the bosphorus and Istanbul alike.

Great recommendation by our hotel! Staff were friendly, very attentive table service, food was delicious. Smaller portions but still reasonably priced. And the view at night over the golden horn/bosphorous was beautiful. Worth a reservation.

It was our first night in Istanbul, and the views of the sunset over the magical spires was inspirational. And then the food arrived. My parents had seabass, I had the lamb - we all licked our fingers. The dessert too was phenomenal - the view, the food, the service ,... was all perfect! What a special treat!

We had dinner here on a recommendation from our hotel staff after the Hodja Pasha show. Fantastic food, unbelievable view, and friendly wait staff: what more can you possibly ask for?

We were staying in the Orient Express Hotel and were exhausted, so just walked up a staircase from our 7th floor room, and had dinner here. Quiet season, so we had a great table, an attentive waiter, excellent food (prepared just for us ;-)), and a bottle of good Turkish red wine. Just what we needed.

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.
