Very classy place. Great decor and ambience. And most importantly amazing Food. I love Mediterranean food and this place does not disappoint anyone. I was here during mid week so not overly crowded either.

Beautiful fish. Lovely decor. We were here on a week night when there were few other people around, which worried us at first. However, when the food appeared so did all our worries. Excellent service. Very central. Not at all expensive. Good night all round.

...some eating place while avoiding the usual traps. Of course there are a few good places in the old city but not easy to find for people who never set feet in Istanbul since 37/38 years. Massi can maybe be classified as Average but with a big PLUS. We tried out the place and were convinced, so we returned back... More

We had dinner at Massi last week. We sat in the upstairs garden - its not a terrace but is outdoors with pomegranate tree in it. Very nice. The food was excellent, and the kunefe was certainly one of the best i've ever had.

We had a very good meal at this restaurant and enjoyed each course with no complaints whatsoever. Not only was the food of a high standard but the wine complemented it beautifully and the service was impeccable. We enjoyed two entrees, one made with eggplant and the other an artichoke with finely diced carrots and other vegetable, accompanied with toasted... More

The roof top dining terrace is a special place where we enjoyed great service and superb seafood. The team here were friendly and attentive and really made for a memorable evening in Istanbul

The food was decent and a fair price. Service however, was poor compared to the usual Turkish hospitality of other restaurants in the city. Note there is a 10% service fee and you are charged for the bread and water placed on the table. Would not go back because of this.

We visited here twice in 4 days. The 1st visit was good, fresh food and fairly quick service, we visited very early in the evening so this may have played in our favour. The 1st hint of a let down was that none of the cheaper bottles of wine (20 euros) were available, all sold out we were told, the... More

Located a short distance along the road to the left of the far end of the hippodrome( away from the tram line). We had read other reviews, had been to an overpriced tourist restaurant nearby, and decided to give this restaurant a try. We sat upstairs at the back in a nice sized open air balcony area with a large... More

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.
