This was our restaurant on our last night in Istanbul and the first time we were not harassed to come in. Which is why we came in! It was the best meza'd place we'd had so far and we'd had many. Good conversation and pleasant service. I would go back if we were staying longer.

We ordered the stuffed grape leaves, lentil soup, testi (pottery) kebab with lamb, and the recommended stuffed chicken. All were delicious, especially the chicken. Great service provided by Ali and Ali. Loved the atmosphere as well

We stopped at Fuego during our walking tour for lunch. We were sat outside and since it was a beautiful day I didn't mind. Even though we're outside, their tables were linen covered, sofa benches and very clean. That's already plus 1 for me!! The staff were polite, spoke fluent English, and don't harass people to eat in their restaurant.... More

Like this restaurant, because they dont hassle you. The food is great. All credits go to the nice staff who makes you very welcome. Maybe you pay a few euro's more (€3-5) its fresh and super. Also the wine and coctails are much better than other restaurants.

This place was recommended to us. We had the combo appetizer plate and the combo grilled plate. They were both great and the portions were very generous. The meat was very tender and juicy. The service and atmosphere were unforgettable.

Love this place! Wanted some good al fakher sheesha not the typical Turkish flavours you find everywhere so I searched this area and was recommended this place by a waiter at a nearby restaurant. From the moment we got there the staff greeted us and made us feel very welcome, all spoke good English and weren't pushy to get you... More

The food is sublime and, for being in such a touristy area, the staffers aren't pushy, are very friendly, relaxed and will often offer you a post meal free tea/coffee. they let you sit as long as you like, even if you just order cofee with bread (with comes with hummus and a yogurty spread that I still dream of).

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.
