The great location sums it up. The food is pedestrian. It has excellent service but the price for the quality served up is more than you expect to pay

It is a very good place to rest after visiting the Topkapi Palace and have a bite to eat. We enjoyed the food and the excellent service (to the waiter brought me a blanket as he saw I was a bit chilly, thank you :-) and the most amazing view of Bosphorus and the city.

Is the only place in the Topkapi Palace that sells food and drink. This makes the place able to have the most expensive drinks comparing with other cafes around the city that we visit. Hopefully we didn't taste the food and as we see from other guests it might not be something special but we don't have personal opinion about... More

This is my second time at this restaurant but the first time having more than a drink. It's so strategically placed that you will most probably end up there during or after a visit to Topkapı Palace, so I believe business is thriving. It was packed the last time I visited and this time as well. I can't say I... More

It takes a few hours to see the amazing sights of Topkapi Palace and an ideal way to break up your visit is to dine at Konyali restaurant on the palace grounds. The restaurant overlooks the Bosphorus, so make sure to ask for a table closest to the water. There were many choices on the menu - we shared a... More

Lovely spot to relax and have a good lunch after your visit to the Palace. Very comfortable, nice food, pretty good food. "Splurge" at the full restaurant for a less "touristic", less cafeteria feel. 100 TL for lunch for two was more than reasonable.
