This is a place not to be missed if you are in Sultanahmet. This may be the most beautiful view from a terrace in Istanbul. It is a restaurant to go for a drink in the evening or dinner because it is a summer venue and would be very hot during the day. This restaurant is across the Four Seasons... More

Istanbul is vacant now, very unnecessarily, but the place we wanted to go nearby was closed and we stumbled into this place. Had great mezes to start and the lamb chops and meatballs were great. Very attentive staff. Go to Istanbul now without the crowds!

A must visit Resturant in Istanbul! The views are second to none, even at night. You are overlooking the Marmara sea and Bosporus, Aya Sofia and the Magnificat blue mosque. They have a wide selection of fish and sea food delivered in a fancy way. Enjoyed it a lot and can't wait to come back

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
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.
