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

Facing opposite to the serene sea of Marmara, a short walking distance from historic Sultan Ahmet square, Marbella Cafe Restaurant is young at heart, relaxing atmosphere, and with pleasant service that serves in a romantic ambiance. It is a place where one can experience a spectrum of elegantly designed, rich and fresh home cooked meals that fulfills the appetite. Flavors tickling the smallest corners of the mouth, delight in wholesome main dishes; meat, poultry and fish to delicately sweet turkish desserts made with high quality ingredients that are prepared fresh right to your table. Sip velvety local wine from the menu. Breath in the soul of the sea of Marmara with a water pipe (Nargile) at Marbella Cafe Restaurant.
