We found this place by chance, after a long day exploring Istanbul. It is very peaceful and offers a nice view of Aya Sofia. We only had some tasty sweets not dinner. A bit pricy but considering its location It's not of a surprise.

This is a lovely restaurant right next to the Hagia Sofia. We had a delicious turkish pizza from here and the sweets were simply wonderful. Staff is very polite and food reasonably priced considering the great location.

A very beautiful cafe restaurant, with a great view of Aya Sofia. That's pretty much all about it. The food was ok but it was expensive for what it offered.
