Have you ever asked yourself why tourists adore Istanbul? Definitely one of the reason is the position, with the Golden Horn on the one hand and the Bosphorus on the other, and a guaranteed sunset every evening. This is what you’re going to see from the Hamdi Restaurant in Istanbul. From the terrace on the last floor of this restaurant you’ll have the whole Istanbul at your feet, the Golden Horn, the Galata Tower and the Eminonu Mosque… Don’t you feel like a Sultan?
Joking apart, a lot of turkish people suggested me this place to taste the best kebap of the city, and since the best thing you can do while you’re travelling is to follow the local inhabitants advice, I tried many times to go there. But Hamdi Restaurant is so well-known and appreciated, that it’s difficult to find a table. Finally last year I booked a table directly from my hotel and I understood why turkish people speak so well of this restaurant of Istanbul: really tasty kebaps and baklava, 5 stars service, the most romantic view I’ve ever had, and all for a reasonable price! This is what I love in Istanbul: you can live as a Sultan! 🙂
So, this is my first advice for you, Istanbul travellers:
