I tried to book this restaurant for my upcoming İstanbul trip. It was excellent the last time I was there. Unfortunately I was told that the restaurant is closed. The website is also down. Disappointing.

This restaurant offers excellent oriental food at reasonable prices. Located on top of a hotel, it also provides a very interesting view. In total, a good combination.

Amazing food, amazing views, amazing experience. Maybe the best place to dine in Istanbul. The whole atmosphere was just perfect, so much of the Istanbul feeling, as watching Bosphorus ferries rushing from Asia to Europe and back and seagulls circling round the Galata tower. Fine dining Ottoman inspired mediteranian cuisine, loved my shrimp starters and my lamb main, accompanied by... More

They serve lovely friend calamari - tender with a crunchy crumb coating and both a tartare-like sauce and a cherry sauce... More

Nice restaurant with affordable prices, you could get a drink maybe even tea or coffee. It's not crowded up there with a wonderful view of the Bosphor and the top kapi palace.

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.
