I got the kofta and chips and it was the best I've ever had! My husband got a lamb steak which was cooked to perfection. To top it off the view is absolutely breath-taking! You are literally sat between the Haga Sophia and Blue mosque and also have a brilliant view of the sea. Would definitely recommend!

As always we came for dinner and lunch at this restaurant. It has probably the best views of the Bospherous, and is in the middle of the Blue Mosque and Aiya Sophia. They also have a rooftop bar and cafe. If visiting to take photos please be respectful and have at least a drink if not a meal. It must... More

Food is nice. Service is not so polite in general but of course this is also a matter of the waiter. Overpriced but you should go there in spring early afternoon...Unbelievable view between Agia Sophia and the Blue Mosque.Very romantic when night starts to fall and the lights are turned on.

This restaurant has the superb views of the old city as overlooks both Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia and has a splendid view of the Bosphorus. Indeed as many reviews have mentioned, "The Best Views of Sultanahmet". The food was typical turkish fare and we enjoyed it. The service was attentive as the ladies got knitted wraps as the evening... More

This restaurant has the best terrace in the old city. It's situated right in the middle between Sultanahmet mosque and Hagia Sophia and its terrace overlooks both, plus the view of Bosphorus. Truly amazing. I wasn't impressed by their food btw., but the looks are just great. You can order tea and sip it, while enjoying the best views in... More

We were lucky enough to stumble upon this restaurant for dinner because the views and food are amazing. The rooftop dining area is the perfect spot to watch the sunset as you're positioned in between the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sofia. The seafood is a must as it is freshly caught and prepared after you self-select your fish.

The view is just stunning: Agia Sofia one side the blue Mosque the other one... Impossible better view. The food is tasty, If you don't like sea food the options are limited, specially if you like meat, anyway the dishes are tasty and more than enough quantity, the service correct and courteous and the price is ok for the food....

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.
