This place is a real gem because the terrace and service are so amazing, Mehmet is very nice guy who's working there, he was a real gentleman. The food is good, the desserts are great. Would recommend.

We had dinner here for our daughter's 17th birthday. The food and service were outstanding, the view is great, but what really took us by surprise was the personal touch : for desert there was a surprise birthday cake with fireworks on it and they gave her a typical Turkish delicacy as a present : Turkish delight. My daughter had... More

It was a while ago that I was in Istanbul - in November 2014 - but I am only just getting around to writing this review. Because my visit was some time ago, I will spare some of the finer details, but I do remember that I thought this restaurant was the best in Istanbul. We loved it so much... More

I'm not yet convinced that Turkey is really the place for fine dining, it's only been a few days in Istanbul but it doesn't feel like it so far. The food here was high end local at high prices and a decent location. The view and setting was good but not exceptional and that doesn't make up for relatively ordinary... More

We had booked for the second sitting, arrived early to find an almost empty restaurant. We were outside (a jacket is good if you feel the cold). Lovely views. Apetisers were excellent, as others have noted the calamari was in a light, crispy batter, the pan fried fish had amazing flavour. The mains were less so. I thoroughly enjoyed my... More

Located on the 7th floor of our hotel. Ate dinner here both nights we were in Istanbul. Good service and well priced dinners. Beautiful view overlooking the Bosphorus. Since there are only 2 settings per night, would recommend you make reservation.

We stayed in the hotel below and as we were tired from our journey we are here on our first night. The staff were attentive and happy to assist with meal and wine choice. The food was fresh and tasty. As the sunset over the city and harbour the lights came on and the views were beautiful across to Galata... 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.
