Description: It resembles a Greek tavern restaurant by the Aegean sea with its white and blue coloured decoration and frescoes on the ceiling. It is located in a cobbled stoned street in Sultanahmet ( oldtown) and offers more than 30 different traditional cold appetizers, hot appetizers and special home made mezes with very fresh seafoods.

The Kayikci Restaurant is on a little side street just off the main street that goes along the Haggai Sophia and the Blue Mosque. The location is convenient, but away from the traffic. On a cool day (1 Dec) they had excellent heating for the sidewalk tables. We were very comfortable and the service was excellent.
One of us had a fine vegetarian dish that was fresh and tasty. The other had a lamb dish served on a traditional hot plate that was blissfully good.
The hummus is wonderful.
Excellent espresso to finish.

We stumbled into this place walking around and were glad we did! The salt fish presentation was flashy and the dish with the yogurt and aubergine puree was fantastic!

We chanced upon this moderate, cheerful neighborhood restaurant in Old City and were so pleased we went back again. It is small cafe style, but the food is excellent, as is the service. We ordered a Yakut red and were pleased with it as well. You can choose your fish and style...and the mezes are very good. Make sure they bring the puff bread from the next-door (co-owned) restaurant. Either is good but we liked the fish side better.

Our hotel recomended this fish resteraunt and we enjoyed ourself so much we came back again a second time during our 1 week holiday.
the staff were excellent! very welcoming and helpful, Our waiter Tarik recomended the sea bass cooked in salt and we were very glad we took his advice, the fish was superb! We also could have chosen some very yummy looking mezes. The wine chosen for us made the meal the best we had all week, Anatolya white.
I would recomend this place to everyone and want to say thank you to all the staff.

A friendly welcome leads you in to a very enjoyable evening at Kayikci: from the meze( starter plates) to the wide range of meat and fish dishes, and excellent wine. Modern, clean, quality food, helpful staff, and good value.
