Do not be fooled by the fancy doors or the view, if you want good food this is not the place to go. The food is very over priced for very mediocre food. Not many options to chose from and only spoon full portions, left still feeling hungry.

The service is good. The food mediocre. Prices high. It is a place for tourists. Great views from the terrace. If you can't find a table on the terrace, then there is no point dining there. Go for the service and views. Not the food and prices.

Great rooftop view! Hamdi offers both great food and good view! Typically Turkish food carefully prepared, and great view from the Galata bridge and the “new” part of the city. Important to make reservations in advance.

The view from the upper floor terrasse is great, overlooking the Bosporus. We got a table without any reservation (not many tourists now in Istanbul). The kebabs were about the best I've got in Turkey, so 5 stars for this course. For the price level that is OK in this city, I think. What needs an upgrade is the service... More

We had lunch here while visiting the spice bazaar. What a delight. This is a white tablecloth place with excellent food, good service, and reasonable prices. It is a rooftop restaurant with a view too. Very popular with the locals even though in a tourist area. At the waiters recommendation we started with a shared salad served family style. It... More

Authentic Turkish dishes. We tried kebab with pistachio and kebab with yoghurt and it was delightful meal. Cheese kunafe was very good. All of that plus two cups of tea for only 27 euros. The staff are nice and attentive.

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighbourhood Profile
Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighbourhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.
