Great place to have late drinks and if the fancy takes you, a shisha pipe. Relaxed atmosphere with outdoor seating. Staff can provide blankets if it gets a bit chilly and there are also overhead heaters. Great cocktails and a good assortment of other beverages....More

Mitani, which is centrally located on Akbayik Caddesi, is a real gem. A stone's throw away from Aya Sofya, and other places of interest in Sultanahmet, this cafe is as comfortable as it can get. Our host/waiter Azrat ensured that we have a good time...More

Certainly Mitani Cafe it's not on the top of restaurants in Istanbul because of the food. Their speciality is the service. All the staff were very nice with my group. I ordered and recommend the Kebab that comes hot in the pot. Unforgettable experience!

Great place for food and shisha. Excellent customer service. Great, polite and welcoming staff. We ended up there every night on our holiday. Definitely recommend

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

Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
