Excellent excellent kebab and bread. Friendly waiters, but they insist you write a TripAdvisor review while waiting for the bill. Baklava was average.

We had mixed kebab and seabass. The meat is tender and the fish is fresh! Complimented with lovely service from the waiters. This is definitely one of our best dinners in Istanbul.

the food is good and tasty. I especially liked the chicken wings which were tender and delicious. The waiter(Mohammad) was welcoming and offered free water, salad and desert. One thing to note though is that tax is not included in the price.

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

They did have local seafood on the menu but we didn't try it. I would think based on the quality of the other dishes it should be good.
