This was by far our favourite restaurant/Bar that we visited during our stay in Istanbul. Staff were extremely nice and inside is very cozy for couples looking for drinks. This will be our first stop when we return to Istanbul.

Lovely experience (location, design, music, serving, food). We enjoyed the place together with our two boys and it was a pleasure.

Stumbled a Ross this place by accident having avoided lots of restaurants touting for customers. Very friendly when we stopped for a drink so went back for dinner the following day. Food fantastic and cheaper than nearby restaurants.

Decided to visit this place, because whenever we were passing by - it was looking atmospheric and interesting. They bring you everything that was ordered very fast. It's a pro. The turkish coffee and tea were good. The pide was fine. The water pipe was...for 10 mins, then it had no taste. The waiters' service has to be improved.More

Unfortunately I must say this was the most bland tasteless food we had in Turkey. Was here years ago and food was great then, decided to go back but was hugely dissapointed. Food without love. Unfortunately.

We stayed in the Airbnb above the Palatium which was amazing with a view of the sea, the Blue Mosque, and Hagia Sophia. The restaurant had great food and a very fun atmosphere. The Byzantine Palace being excavated beneath the restaurant is a treasure.

This place is FANTASTIC! We were walking near it almost every evening, but unfortunately decided to visit it only at our last day. While sitting in the cafe you can’t even imagine what is under your feet - the ancient part of Magnaura palace. They...made a great thing - trying to save the historical place. The service was amazing too! So we were so pleased to visit this place and fully recommend to visit it too.More

Great casual spot for food and drinks. Comfy, cozy atmosphere with good food. The best part is the archeological excavation under the floor might be the best part. Peek through the glass panels while you dine and ask nicely if they'll let you walk down...to explore - they let us!More

Just dropped by in a rainy evening and slumped in the sofas. Had a glass of wine and some pide and a delicious Rice pudding...easy going for guests and staff! I am sure that pre Covid was rammed with Lots of youngsters.

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere

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
