We literally just ate at Raymond's and I had to jump on and let everyone know how amazing this place is!!! After wondering the streets of Istanbul we came across Raymond's the gentleman who tries to get you in the restaurant was very polite and honest (not like the 10 others we were hassled by), we said we were looking...

The food is absolutely outstanding. I loved my kebab so much. I regret going there on my last night, therefore I could not go more... The guy who try to catch you from the street is also a very nice and funny character. Price is also reasonable.

When we came here for the fist time, we were impressed by the great atmosphere of the place. So when we come to Istanbul next time, we'll choose the Raymond restaurant.

Staying at Sapphire hotel we came to use Raymond many evenings. A nice unassuming place. Good and friendly service. I particularly liked the börek and the köfte. Large glasses with Efes, not least!

We were staying opposite this hotel restaurant and went there one night for a meal. I wish we had gone there earlier as the food and service (and wine) was wonderful. I had a mushroom casserole and my partner and a friend had fish casseroles. All were really excellent. The service was friendly and thoughtful. The three of us were... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
