Service was exceedingly slow on an evening that was not busy, over an hour for meal. Just mediocre food. This place is typical of... More

When you are in the Old City area, make sure to visit this restaurant. The food is excellent, but the friendly service is even better ! After a first visit, we returned the next day cause we felt so welcome. And this was in December, so even without the magnificent terrace views, this is an absolute must do. Guy Degrieck,... More

A cold and wet late October evening, feeling peckish and wandered by chance into this restaurant. Thank goodness we did. It is a gem! After a while, the wife and I felt that we were no longer in a restaurant but having a meal with friends, such was the friendly, warm, welcome that we received. We were downstairs as it... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood 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.
