We had a wonderful meze meal and enjoyed a bottle of wine against some spectacular views of the Bosporus, Hag Sofia and the Blue Mosque. Our waiter, Yunis was exceptional. Would highly recommend for a drink and snack after the touring of the mosques.

Seven Hills restaurant is situated on hotel's roof next to Sultanahmet square with a fantastic view on Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque at one side and Bosphorus at the other side. You can enjoy delicious fish, lobsters and seafood having a look round the historical center of Istanbul with its ancient archetecture from bird's eye view.

The rooftop view as the sun was setting was unbelievable, with the sky changing colors over the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Our table shared a fresh fish platter, which was done to perfection. The view wouldn't let go, so we sat on the porch outside the bar for after-dinner drinks, with cozy blankets to ward off the evening chill.

From the moment my friend and I stepped foot on the outdoor terrace at Seven Hills Restaurant, I was absolutely blown away. The view of Istanbul, the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque was unlike anything I've ever seen. To make it even more incredible, we were there just before sunset so we got to see the sky's changing colors.... More

Slightly on the pricey side but totally justified by the stunning views or the city. We watched the sunset in awe.

I visited this restaurant by pure coincidence whilst walking past, my friends and i were reeled in by a waiter at the door. We were starving at the time so it didn't take much convincing.

I got the kofta and chips and it was the best I've ever had! My husband got a lamb steak which was cooked to perfection. To top it off the view is absolutely breath-taking! You are literally sat between the Haga Sophia and Blue mosque and also have a brilliant view of the sea. Would definitely recommend!

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
