There are two aspects of Loti in this review. At street level, Loti cafe offers a cover-all menu with well presented and prepared dishes for every hour of the day, from breakfast to supper and later. We had brunch, which was excellent, not just because of the food, but the outstanding service; professional, punctilious, prompt, while never obtrusive. My wife requested a couple of items not on the vast menu which, after brief explanation, were promptly delivered, consumed and pronounced to be excellent. Result. After 11.am, we might have opted instead for the Loti rooftop, which offers what must be one of the finest vistas in the city. From here, you can look down across the Blue Mosque (Sultanahmet) to the Bosphorus, its many boats and their creamy wakes against the blue of the sea. We returned for a late nightcap, and the view was no less impressive at night. The lunching and dining menu up top is less varied than street side, and has a more international than Turkish flavour to it. The choice is yours.

After visiting eyup mosque we took the cable car , wow amazing view . We had some snacks and beverages while enjoying the magnificent view of Golden Horn and the Bospour. We really didn't mind to spend hours just sitting on the terrace and enjoy the view. If you like you can take a taxi from any point of istanbul and go straight away to pirre lotti area . Don't forget to go and see the tombs , the area itself has very nice atmosphere. We visited this cafe in the morning and went again with some friends at night as well so we had the chance to enjoy the view morning and night time DON'T MISS IT

Brilliant views out over the Golden Horn! We took the little cable car up and - once seated and sipping our coffee in the cafe - felt a real sense of Loti and his amorous adventure.

A convenient stop after walking up the hill from Eyüp Sultan Mosque. The view of the Golden Horn is magnificent from here, worth spending some time sipping a traditional Turkish tea or coffee on their terrace. Toilet is free to use (open to public) and is very clean.
