Without doubt, the most delicious meal I ate in Istanbul! And easily the most inviting and attentive service you will get anywhere in the city. With beautiful sea views, what more could you ask for?!

If you're looking for authentic Turkish dishes, you will be back to taste everything on the menu (don't go home without having dined on the Filleted Sea Bass Casserole) - sadly the chef said no when I asked him to marry me!

Cheers Soul Kitchen is one of our best memory from our trip in Istanbul. In this warm and welcoming restaurant, two steps from Hagia Sophia in the heart of Sultanahmet, starters are just delicious, main courses are fantastic, wine memorable and service is a five stars. We strongly recommend it.

Two days ago we were for a dinner and food. It was awesome as well as the kindness of the stuff. Souffle is MUST HAVE.
Place where you say Cheers more than couple of times.

After looking at tripadvisor, we decided with a group of friends to go have a nice dinner at this restaurant. We were a very big group and we filled more than 3 tables of the restaurant.

The food took forever to get served. It took so much time that at the end many of our friends had almost missed their flight and went to airport without eating their dinner and starving.

The food took forever to get served. It took so much time that at te end many of our friends had almost missed their flight and went to airport without eating their dinner and starving.

When we got our plate, it was very tasty but small, not filling at all. but we preferred not to reorden knowing it will take forever.

When we got the bill, we had a shock! The bill was handwriten, without any clear details and with a ridiculously high amount at the end. Considering the fact that each one took some drinks and a meal, we calculated that the total amount was obviously overcalculated. When we called the waiter, he has been extremely rude and provided no other explanation other than: "your friends who left probably didnt paid they meal, plus we added 10% for the service". We spent more than an hour arguing and trying to understand the bill. At the end, each one of us had to put more than 30 Lira in addition to what we had to put as per the menu.

So i dont recommend this restaurant, yes the food is definitely very tasty, but you'll regret it once you get the bill!!

Honestly we can't believe this place has such a high position in Istanbul restaurant ranking. The place is nice but the food has nothing particular, people inside were all tourists,and personnel were not too kind and very busy with their smartphones.
We ate in other Istanbul restaurants and food was much more good with reasonable prices.... here the bill does not reflect Turkish average hospitality. We do not recommed it, there are thousands of other typical restaurants in Sulthanamet, waiting for you!
