Any country that has a business named after a John Wayne movie I have to check out. They even have a poster of the movie on display. They have western style pub foods. Wraps, salads, wings and appears a lot of vegetarian choices. Nice ambience, nice big screen televisions. I was disappointed they didn't have a special house hamburger. Only... More

Once again, I am in Istanbul, eating at the Red River Pub, on the hunt for the perfectly prepared calimari. Freshly fried, served on a bed of argula, and a side of dill flavored dipping sauce, and a wedge of lemon, it is currently priced at 17TL, the same as last year. And, just as tasty. I am so addicted... More

Red River was my go-to local casual restaurant when I was in Istanbul over several days in September. The staff were friendly and efficient, spoke English very well, and the kitchen produced good quality inexpensive food. There's a decent drinks menu as well. And - they show football!

I first ate here 2 year's ago. Today I had lovely lunch, a mixed meze plate and an Efes near. The meze was really delicious, the staff welcoming and the ambience relaxing. The Red River is near all the "sights" in the old town, it is inexpensive and quite different from the kebap shops around.

I can positively say that Red river pub is one of the best pubs/restaurants I've ever been to. Not only did they speak english (which made everything much easier when it came to ordering) but they also served gluten free meals that both looked fantastic and tasted great. Honestly speaking, I am on gluten free diet and it is sometimes... More

Went here on two occasions and on both times the food was excellent (salad, kebabs, etc) and service friendly. They also showed the Euro Cup finals on various screens and we found it a great place to hang out after dinner over a few drinks as well. Desserts were also lovely and worth going for!

Red River Pub is an amazing American pub with a nice atmosphere. During the day you can enjoy your drink outside, and it is also possible to watch the important football games while enjoying a cold beer or a coctail. If you feel hungry there are a lot of dinner options too. The staff is very nice, especially the guys... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
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.
