After a long and tiring day sightseeing in Istanbul you can enjoy a cold beer, a glass of wine or a soft drink away from all the hussle and bussle in our Garden Terrace Bar. After a hard day sightseeing our guests enjoy a beer wine or soft drink before heading out for dinner. In fact any time is a good time to enjoy our terrace.
You can meet fellow travelers and swap Istanbul stories and join in our BBQ during the summer months. Ayasofya does not have a restaurant, however there are menus available from our local restaurants and you can enjoy a a pizza or even cook your own BBQ if you wish.
Ayasofya s Garden Terrace is a great place to read your book, plan your time in Istanbul in the quiet of the morning, relax in the afternoon, join friends in the evening or just gaze at the Sea of Marmara any time.
Drink prices are very reasonably priced
Free coffee and tea are available any time !
