I really liked this restaurant. The food was very tasty and freshly made. The specialty it seems are the crepes (sort of pancakes) with meat and cheese. Very good and they are made directly there by a woman (please think about tipping her if you go). The staff was nice and helpful. The place is super cozy, you sit on... More

So we tried Turkish cuisine for the first time here and believe me it was beautiful. The ambiance of the restaurant enhanced the flavor of the food. The clay pot stew was superb and it was delivered to the table after a fantastic stunt from one of the staff. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

Try the Turkish Style Chicken, it's amazing! It's a bit pricey, but as so many on the turistic area.

Handily located between the Hagia Sophia and Topkapi palace I thought this restaurant was a good lunch spot. Yes it is in a tourist area but I didn't think there was anything to fault about this place. The staff were welcoming and friendly. I would recommend the Gozleme which are made fresh in front of you and which were tasty... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
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.
