I was staying at the hotel and had lunch there. The food is very good and good service. Prices are little higher than street restaurants but worth the service and the quality. The view is very nice. Highly recommend.

Excellent restaurant with fine service. We enjoyed two very relaxing meals here. The fish is excellent. A friend ordered the crepes and they looked wonderful. Over all, reasonable for what you get - which is very upscale - and they don't rush you at all!

We were on a tour of Istanbul and stopped here for lunch one day. The restaurant served up an exquisite, fine-dining, pre-set 3-course experience. We were told that all dishes were representative of local, traditional cuisine. Presentation was very exact and appealing. The appetizer plate featured a spread of various tasters (feta cheese and tomato, green beans, yogurt with carrots,... More

Very good food. Without a doubt, since the head chef seemed to have worked quite a few places around the world with numerous hotels like Hilton, Ciragan Palace etc. I must recommend the Kalyon Kebab Special.

Ideally located in the center of the Historical Peninsula of Istanbul by the Sea of Marmara and right at the shore lane. It is 10 minutes walking distance to Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque and also it is 15 minutes walking distance away from Covered Bazaar. The foundation of our food begins with the best ingredients. We partner with local food growers. Preparing the quality ingredients with respect and expertise gives our cuisine its regional flavor.

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.
