Menu stated they offer English tea, though upon receiving the drinks, it stated awful. Nothing like English tea. Baklava was a very small portion. Overpriced for baklava.

The view on the 5th floor is breathtaking. The breeze was also wonderful on the hot summer days. The staff was very helpful in helping my fiancé prepare and carry out a surprise proposal. This place will always have a special place in my heart...because of that ❤️More

I was taken aback with the view from their top terrace, overlooking the blue mosque, Sultanahmet square, and at the end is the bosphorus river. It’s a pleasure to sit & sip some Turkish tea, coffee and enjoy the deserts baklava. It’s located very centrally....Walking distance from Sultanahmet square. It’s a must visit if you are visiting the blue mosque, and ofcourse when in turkey you are visiting the blue mosque :) love from India...More

The view was awesome, from the terrace you can see the blue mosque and hagia sofia along with all the city. The coffee was alright but 16 TL for a latte is a bit expensive.

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
