Not ur average tourist trap

After days of mediocre tourist trap food we finally had a decent dining experience. Service was top notch, food was well presented and full of flavor. Come hungry because the portions are very generous and prices are reasonable. One of a handful of restaurants worth going back to.

This restaurant in the old city near Hagia Sofia (no views) was as good as any and better than most in Istanbul. The restaurants in the area tend heavily to food from the template of what, for want of a better word, might be called "Turkish Tourist Cuisine". The food is perfectly tasty and palatable, just not greatly different from... More

We ate a dessert here and were surprised. The dessert was delicious and the staff really helpful. The restaurant doesn't look much for the eye, it didn't stand out from the rest of the restaurants, but it was really really good! Don't mind to ask the staff for recommendations, they are more than willing to help you! They recommended a... More

We stopped here our first night in Turkey for a full dinner. We sat outside, which was very comfortable even in November. We had the fried cheese appetizer (delicious) and the pomegranate balsamic dressing for our salad was amazing. The kebaps were very good, and the baklava plate has 3 kinds of baklava, all of which were delicious. Definitely recommend... More

Unlike nearby restaurants, no one was harassing us with their menu trying to pull us in, and it proved the right sign. The food and service were great (we had Iskender Kebab and grilled sea bass and ordered chicken for our children), and we will definitely keep this place in mind on our next visit despite the myriad of restaurants...

Had a great meal at Fuego in the old town. The food was exceptionally and goes beyond the kabobs to offer some very unique and great tasting specialty options. Highly recommend.

We were recommended Fuego by our hotel reception. The food was very good and they staff were excellent. I can't remember all the names, but our main contact there was Ali. He speaks very good English and will do everything possible to make your visit to Fuego a good one. We did try another restaurant one one evening, but it... More

We went to their other restaurant first, which was great as well, and then they send us here. Very good food and terrific service.

Maybe I was just THAT hungry but the spicy kebabs were about the best food I had in a long time. Best kebabs during a 10 day trip to Iran where I basically had them every single day. The sweet cat that sat on my lap to warm up was a treat too. ( even though cats aren't really my... 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.
