We visited this restaurant based on google recommendation. We were not dissapointed. The waiter (and the owner?) was very nice, the food was delicious and fresh (we ordered grilled sea bass and grilled sea bream), and the interior was simple but unique. Definitely one not to miss.

Fish house plate with cheese (105lt)was exceptional mix of tastes... More

We ate here following a recommendation from my girlfriends sister who had visited before. I have to say that we were so glad we decided to eat there. It's located on a back street and it took us some time to find. But it was definitely worth it. The food is cooked to perfection and the flavours were epic. For... More

We had a good meal with the seafood mixed grill and some calamari and sea bass. Everything was good, fresh, and cooked well. Our only complaint (which is why it is not 5 star) is that it was not truly "grilled" in our opinion. It seemed all fried on a flat grill, but there were no grill marks and this... More

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.
