Wow I don't what can I say about Soul Kitchen that will do it justice! It's amazing.. from the service from Berkan and his team, the close proximity to the blue mosque, to the spectacular views of the Marmara sea and the beautiful tasty Turkish food. Every morning I woke to a wonderful nutritious Turkish breakfast to give me the... More

The service here was impeccable. The atmosphere is very nice. We went for the view (understanding that our meal would be a little more expensive because of how close to the sea it was). The food was tasty, but since we had dinner there (at night), there wasn't much to see out of the windows, and like someone else mentioned,... More

A real gem with a fantastic sea view terrace. A lovely setting, warm friendly staff and great food. Can't emphasise enough how great the staff are here. Very glad I wandered in.

A cool, quiet evening in October - so little atmosphere. The music was good, the service better and the typical Turkish food excellent. The view from the terrace of the Sea of Marmara was spoiled by the busy road between us but the food was excellent. Well worth a visit if you are staying close by. You won't be disappointed... More

Went to Cheers Soul Kitchen for 2 reasons. Firstly, it was drizzly and it was next door to our hotel and secondly because of the TA reviews. We had attended the Alaturka Cooking Class (highly recommend) for lunch so only wanted an appetiser and a couple of drinks for tea. We found the beer expensive - large glass for TL14... More

First time I was in Cheers Soul Kitchen was this same year (2015) February. It was an incredible treat on my last night in Istanbul. Now I just got back and was welcomed with a hearty Chicken Potato Tomato Soup and the freshest salad I've tasted in my life (really, and I've travelled half of the world) It was a... More

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.
