Compared to all the other restaurants in the area the food was tasteless and dry. We asked for a yoghurt sauce 3 times - never got it. The waiters never paid attention to us even if the restaurant was empty. Horrible expererience

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

Do not miss this delightful restaurant tucked away in a side street off the main tram route through the historical heart of Sultanahmet. In a street full of restaurants, the Dolphin stands out for the exceptional quality and excellent value of its food. Enjoy a wide variety of traditional Turkish dishes served by friendly and efficient staff. Nothing is too much trouble for Erol, the hospitable owner who has an unlimited supply of tricks with which to entertain the lucky diners, many of whom have already made more than one visit – a good recommendation in itself!
