The food was very good. We chose the kabobs for 2. Service was excellent. The complimentary apple tea was also nice.

This was a quick lunch stop on one of our first days in Istanbul, and it quickly morphed into a place we stopped in for dessert even when we'd eaten elsewhere. Solid, dependable, reasonably priced food and drink!

We enjoyed 2 meals here. Both meals were really good. The location is perfect as we spent a few evenings having drinks across the road with Shasha (spelling?), relaxing on the lounges then only had to cross the road to have a good meal. Their selection of food is varied, their apple tea yummy and the service is quite good.

A nice place to explore Turkish cuisine at a lively corner in Sultanahmet. Friendly service. They do not serve alcohol here.

Rumist Cafe was recommended to us by a friend... not only for the great turkish coffee and even pizza on the menu, but also the rug shop up stairs. We were looking to by a Turkish carpet during our trip to Istanbul. There are many eager carpet salesman all around the city... you will find yourself visiting the Blue Mosque and then before you know it sipping apple tea at their carpet shop. Not the case with Ibrahim... the owner of the cafe and the rug shop that is just upstairs. We went to find him and we were so happy that we did. Ibrahim is a fair and honest rug dealer... very informative about his pieces and not pushy whatsoever. We purchased 2 fabulous pieces, and we stayed within our price range - we could not be happier. Thanks Ibrahim... we look forward to seeing you again on our next trip to Istanbul!
