Balıkçı Sabahattin information
The limos outside Balıkçı Sabahattın pay testament to its enduring popularity with the city's establishment, who join cashed-up tourists in enjoying its limited menu of meze and fish. The food here is the best in Sultanahmet, though the service is often harried. You'll dine under a leafy canopy in the garden (one section smoking, the other nonsmoking).
Be sure to choose your fish from the display near the restaurant entrance – cold mezes are chosen from trays brought to your table. If you're lucky, waiters will bring free desserts at the end of the meal (both the figs and the quince are delicious). This and water are included in a TL5 cover charge.
