We were staying across the street and wanted a simple dinner. The front desk suggested we eat here. It was a nice dinner but the service was more than charming. We had a new best friend lots of entertainment for the evening. This is the perfect place for a low key evening in Istanbul.

We ate here almost every day we were in Istanbul. Its a nice quiet restaurant in Sultanamhet with great food. A good place to have a beer and relax after walking the city.

Nice restaurant in a nice location. The food was good, I just think we wait to much time for them to bring out the food. However the atmosphere is very friendly and nice decoration.

Ok…you all may have experienced that moment in which you're walking around in a daze trying to decide where you wish to eat with all the touristic restaurants trying to persuade you to try their restaurant. Look no further, we found the perfect small restaurant/wine bar directly across the street from the beautiful Eresin Crown Hotel that will check off all of your boxes.

Just a 5 min walk from the back of the Blue Mosque, the Hippodrome restaurant/wine bar will make you say Ahhhhhh. It’s simple, stylish and has a warm atmosphere. They serve traditional and beautifully prepared Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine.

The moment we approached the restaurant we were drawn in by the nice jazz/nouvelle music being played, and other patrons lovely dishes. We were warmly greeted by Antonio who provided exemplary personalized service all evening. He provided perfect recommendations based them on what was fresh and our desires. The restaurant has street side seating as well a hip indoor dining room. The mezes (appetizers) that Antonio suggested, were the best we experienced in Istanbul. Our favorites were the mixed Turkish mezes platter, the succulent sizzling shrimp and mushroom sauté in a clay vessel, the grilled fish, Iskender Kebab and their fresh salads. Ingredients were extremely fresh and their wine and cocktail selection was extraordinary. We loved the Campari vodka martini and fresh Mojito on the warm evenings.

We so enjoyed our experience that upon our return to Istanbul after traveling throughout Turkey, we returned to the Hippadrome Restaurant and enjoyed another fantastic meal and outstanding service.

We sincerely recommend this restaurant and would return without hesitation. In my opinion, don’t waste your time and money on subpar meals and service at the touristy restaurants down from the Blue Mosque Park. Thanks again to Antonio and chef for making our dining experience in Istanbul so memorable.
