Amazing food, amazing views, amazing experience. Maybe the best place to dine in Istanbul. The whole atmosphere was just perfect, so much of the Istanbul feeling, as watching Bosphorus ferries rushing from Asia to Europe and back and seagulls circling round the Galata tower. Fine dining Ottoman inspired mediteranian cuisine, loved my shrimp starters and my lamb main, accompanied by... More

We stayed at Orient Express and Imbat is on the rooftop of the hotel. We ate 4 times during our 9 day stay and had a variety of different food - meze, salads, fish, prawn stew, calamari and desserts. They serve lovely friend calamari - tender with a crunchy crumb coating and both a tartare-like sauce and a cherry sauce... More

Nice restaurant with affordable prices, you could get a drink maybe even tea or coffee. It's not crowded up there with a wonderful view of the Bosphor and the top kapi palace. You have to watch the sun set it is magnificent. Although it's not In front of the sea so you will not see the view as close as... More

we looked hard to find a rooftop restaurant that had good reviews for its food and this did not disappoint. A slight problem with overcooked salmon was more than offset by the quality of the rest of the food, the excellent service and sitting outside with a view of Topkapi as the sun set. We would recommend a visit.

We ate here on the recommendation of a friend. What a fabulous place. Situated on top of a hotel, it has magnificent views of the city. The food was excellent and the service terrific. Cannot praise this place enough. Unfortunately, we had the place to ourselves most of the time due to the downturn in people visiting Istanbul. Give it... 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.
