We ate here following a recommendation from my girlfriends sister who had visited before. I have to say that we were so glad we decided to eat there. It's located on a back street and it took us some time to find. But it was definitely worth it. The food is cooked to perfection and the flavours were epic. For... More

We had a good meal with the seafood mixed grill and some calamari and sea bass. Everything was good, fresh, and cooked well. Our only complaint (which is why it is not 5 star) is that it was not truly "grilled" in our opinion. It seemed all fried on a flat grill, but there were no grill marks and this... More

This restaurant is about 10 minutes' walk from the main square in the historical district of Sultanahmet. It was very quiet on the day we went there as tourist numbers had declined somewhat, according to the wait staff. The interior is cozy and unpretentious. The food was delicious! I would certainly return here.

This place serves amazing fresh sea food. The Shrimp in butter is amazing and has a great flavor. The grilled sea fish has its unique freshness about it. However this place is only about fresh sea food. The dessert is not really good. We ordered halwa with ice cream as suggested by owner, however had to leave it midway. My... More

The stuffed squid is our favorite. The service is super friendly, the food comes fast and is so tasty. The prices are reasonable and we definitely want to come back once we're in Istanbul again.

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.
