If you ever happened to be in Istanbul and particularly in Sultan Ahmed area try not to miss having a meal at Faros. It's easy to locate as it's only steps away from Beyazit metro station.I have been to this restaurant three times during my trips to Istanbul and would love to recommend it to all.

Was exhausted after a busy day in the Bazar & the sightseeing. This place was perfect to take a break, nice and close to all main attractions. Highly recommend the stuffed grape leaves - the best we've had in Turkey.

Food was so good. I highly recommend the New York steak, chicken kabob, and the chicken ottoman. The quantity and taste was really delicious and try the special testy kabab, they make it in this special fire clay pot. Get your camera ready for it !!! If you're Istanbul, you definitely must visit Faros Restaurant Old City in Sultanahmet!!

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.
