We were disappointed in Massi Restaurant, we arrived there at 8pm but it seemed that they were ready to close down. There was one other table of people. Service was slow, it seemed that they had run out of bread, so our meze arrived with no bread (we had to wait quite awhile before the bread arrived). They were then slow with our wine order (they didn't have the first bottle we chose). By the time it arrived we were halfway through the main course. The seafood was fresh, we shared some prawns which were good and then whole grilled fish. Unfortunately the quality of the food didn't make up for the poor service. Price was reasonable.

Massi is an oasis of peace in the crowdy tourist neighbourhood of Sultanahmet. We went in Massi three times during our holidays in Istanbul. The restaurant was always almost empty, maybe due to the recent opening of it. Surprisingly, we met several times the few same clients who seemed to have appreciated the food as we did. On the walls of Massi different historic pictures of the several neighbourhood of Istanbul while the furniture and the tablecloths are worth of a top class restaurant. The same for the food, but not for the bill that is very reasonable in consideration of the quality of the grilled fish served. Our best choices are definitively fried calamari, sea bass and all kind of delicious pastry. Fresh fuits including cherries, grapes and other Turkish fruits were offered free of charges. The waitress, even if with a poor English, was kind and always available. Summarizing: the place to go for tourists who don’t want tourist restaurants in Sultanahmet .
