They served a set 3 course meal. Each dish was amazing. The meat incredibly tender. You could tell the quality of the meat was very high. Yes it is expensive... More

The food was great. The view was fantastic. It is probably more for having drinks than dining or maybe more intended for adults. We a family of three has to sit around two small round tables (put next to each other). Yet, I definitely recommend a try if you are in the area.

The Seasons Restaurant, situated in the historic district of Istanbul, offered an elegant, unexpected oasis garden restaurant, perfect for a refreshing, delicious respite luncheon during our intensive day of sightseeing. This lush, five star experience lies within the courtyard walls of the Four Seasons Sultanahmet Hotel, which unbelievably, is the site of a former prison. Wow; what a makeover!

We stopped for lunch and very much enjoyed the ambiance, meal and service. The assorted mezze was a delicious assortment of some 8 different items. The eggplant pide was exceptional and the pizza delicious. The Turkish coffee is outstanding. Fabulous!

The restaurant located in the glass pavillion inside the Four Seasons Hotel Sultanahmet yard. Lovely midday and romantic at night time, it offers fine turkish and ottoman cusine. Ideal place to have a good kebab after bathing in Hurrem Sultan Hamam (few steps away from hotel). Enjoy!

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
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.
