Great panoramic view and good food

Visiting the Topkapi Palace, there is this restaurant inside the gardens of the Palace with probably the best view over the Bosphorus! We ordered some meat and it was very good not dry and the vegetables were Al dente! Then we went for dessert (mixed icecream and assorted Turkish delights), the... read more

When we came to Topkapi palace, we were greeted with a giant queue. We were hungry and decided to find a place to eat while the queue died. Fortunately we came across this amazing restaurant. The presentation was top notch quality. First of all, the views were truly to die for. Our table overlooked the sea from the best angle.... More

This place has an amazing view locating on the Bosporus sea with and amazing and excellent service , the only downside is the price which is little bit expensive.

Serving Ottoman Empire cuisine, and it's really a good place to go after a tiring walk touring in the palace and looking for a place to film you stomach. There is a nice Seaview from the restaurant. I love the donan kebab and also the traditional drink - Ayran which is so refreshing in the hot summer. Turkish coffee was... More

When your legs ache sufficiently to demand a break whilst touring Topkapi, make your way to the terrazza overlooking the Bosphorus where this excellent cafe-restaurant is located. The views are superb, and at mid-morning the crowds have not yet gathered here so it's possible to find a table to enjoy it all from. The cafe area is self-service. The pastries,... More

My wife and I visited the Topkapi last month (June). Highly recommend hiring one of the tour guides you see on the grounds by the ticket windows. We were on our own and inline long line to purchase tickets. We talked to an older gentlemen/tour guide who explained that he has tickets in his hands; he would take us in... More

It was a total surprise to us that this museum had a restaurant; it's at the back, on the side of the hill going down to the water, so it's not visible until you are literally at it's entrance. The views of the Bosphorus are truly awesome. The menu with pictures seemed a bit cheesy, though I have to admit... More

We visited for lunch as a group earlier in the week. The restaurant has a wonderful location, with sweeping views across and down the Bosphorus. Sadly the food didn't match the views. It was hard to tell for how long the starters had been sitting 'prepared', but the hummus was already changing colour...The kebab meat dish was inedible (for me... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
