It is a really nice place for the romantic dinner. The kitchen is perfect, as well as the wine. Host and the staff are very attentive and nice. For those who prefer a cozy atmosphere, soft music and the smell of the real fireplace - this is it! I definitely will return here again! Recommended!

Enjoyed this place especially the friendly staff, no fewer than 3 different members of their team came over, introduced themselves to me and shook my hand, and were genuinely interested where I had come from to dine at their place (I was alone so not intrusive in the slightest). Brought me free humus and bread and even gave me a... More

The roaring fire drew us in on a very cold, snowy New Years Eve but we never expected the excellent hospitality or entertainment that came with it. Traditional Turkish dancers, muscisians, belly dancer and fantastic fireworks in the street. Great fun, great atmosphere, good food and wine and very friendly host and staff.

They have many local and European dishes to choose from so you will be spoilt with choices. The staff speak good English and always provide service with a smile. Sebastian the head waiter, extremely funny and very helpful.... More

Well we were extremely unfortunate to have experienced this complete scam!!!!! We went to this restaurant as we were staying nearby and we hadn't read any reviews beforehand, if we had I probably would still have gone to this restaurant as the reviews read well, however, this was not what we were to experience! The food was mediocre at best.... 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.
