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

Dinner here is one of the highlights of a visit here to Istanbul. Located on the roof of the Orient Express Hotel, it has one of the best views around. Throw in tasty food and a decent wine list and we were in heaven. You must try to get there for the sunset and be there when the lights come... More

Food is excellent. Service is excellent. We ate there twice, once for lunch two days later had dinner. When I mentioned to thewaiter that it was Mother's Day back home in the US, they compt us a free dessert even wanted to serve us tea and coffee on the house. Will definitely go back.

Nice view day and night. Had a sallad for lunch a couple of times. Nicely served including a small starter of hummus and bread. Had an evening meal. Very nicely served and well prepared. A salsa like sallad with a grilled fish was a bit tame ... would have benefitted from a bit of courage from the cook, lemon, oil... More

Awestruck by the wonderful views overlooking the Bosphorus. Impeccably clean restaurant and freindly staff. Slightly more expensive than other restaurants we went too (but still a lot cheaper than home) Had a beautiful meal and amazing service :-)

It is very cozy place thou it is somewhat challenging to get there as it is in 3rd floor. The view from terrace is good, but this... 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.
