“A great dinner with a Bosphorous view.”
Reviewed 19 January 2010

This hotel restaurant also serves as restaurant for the Sumengen hotel next door. The food at both of my visits was very good. Nice appetizers, well prepared beef and chicken and lovely desert prpared at our special request. The staff is professional and gracious. A nice surprise and a beautiful view!!! Well done.

“The best You can find in old city area for sure!”
Reviewed 6 January 2010

We stayed in Istanbul for 5 days in hotel Obelisk and even after trying different meal in other restaurants for sure we made a resume for ourselves, that the best meal we had in Istanbul was in our hotel restaurant Obelisk, where we didn't have to think that we're tourists and that for sure we'll be cheated in this case. We felt there really very safe and positive. Meal was tasty, varied, atmosphere very friendly and a very good service, and all this also for a good price. Restaurant also has a roof terrace with a very beautiful view to the sea and Blue Mosque etc.. So that we can really recommend this restaurant and hotel for all coming to Istanbul, because we're sure You'll also stay satisfied with Your spent time at Obelisk.

“Best Value in Roof Top Restaurants”
Reviewed 25 June 2008

This rooftop restaurant is the best dining value we found in Sultanhamet, Istanbul. The view of the water is amazing at over 180 degrees. The breezes are cool and if it gets too cool guests are enfolded in Pashmina shawls. The food is delicious and varied: from classic Turkish delights to American standards. The staff is absolutely charming. And all this is with prices that are less than half of the other roof top options in the area.
