- The Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmet Camii)
- Hagia Sofia (Ayasofya Muzesi)
- Gala Kokorec
If you want to taste the local Midye Dolma, this place offers a great one at a really cheap price. This is my favourite Turkish dish. This was my dinner for 4 nights. It’s just too good J
- The Terrace Restaurant Café
If you want a cosy place to chill with nicely mixed flavoured shisha and choice of drink with a breath-taking view of The Blue Mosque, this place has the best spot.
- Akın Balık
If you want to have a nicely prepared seafood meal, this restaurant is the best. It’s normally crowded make sure to have your reservation in advance.
- Nadide Restoran
This restaurant is next to our hotel and full of customers every time we pass by so we decided to give it a try on our last night in Istanbul. The ambiance is really nice, the waiters offer great customer service and food portion is quite large.
- El Ahmed Terrace Restaurant
This is one of the famous terrace restaurants in Sultan Ahmet overlooking the Bosphorus Bridge. I was not really impressed by their mixed grill but I recommend the grilled Sea Bream.
