we stumbled accross this place while walking the streets of SultanAhmet. the staff were welcoming but not pushy. great atmosphere. The pizza was by far the best we had in Istanbul. Testi was great even though we are not fans of Turkish cuisin. We definitely recommend this spot.

I do not understand why the place is so highly rated. Average food at best, quite bland. The prices are to high compared to the quality of the food. Would not recommend.

We only went there to watch the EPL, the service was OK, the food was terrible. The pizza was under cooked, the pasta was the worst my daughter has ever had! And the mushrooms we firm but lacked any kind of flavor! The burger we ordered was OK. What a waste! The owners need to improve the food.

Having stayed in Sultanahmed for 3 weeks it was good to have a friendly local cafe/restaurant that I could pop into for a cay, beer, chat and often would have food there too. Emin, Medsud, Mamoon owner Cazim and the other guys were always welcoming, and especially our friend Kevin who took me a tour of some local places in... 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.
