Adults and kids enjoyed the food, especially the meat-stuffed eggplant and "fasulia". Prices are fair for a touristic area. Highly recommended for first timers in Istanbul!

The Can Restaurant has saved many family outings for us. It's conveniently located, reasonably priced, the food is tasty, and the kids can see what they're going to get. Our boys love the chicken & chips, and meatloaf on potatoes. We like the stuffed eggplant.

One issue with the location of Sultanahmet and its cluster of Istanbul's top tourist attractions is that there's a corresponding increase in pushy sales - be it in carpets, tours, or restaurants. Walking down the street you basically run the gauntlet through all the touts...More

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
