Our meals were perfectly pleasant but not mind blowingly flavoursome as we hoped. That said, the setting was lovely, very good prompt service and so lunch here was worth it for the experience. I recall there was a ' fast food' aspect to the side that was very busy that may have had the same kitchen I don't know. I... More

This restaurant is by the bosphorus which means you get an amazing view while you eat. The food is a little on the expensive side and it's average at best, so you are essentially paying for the view. I don't think I will necessarily want to go back but it's a good place to visit at least once.

When we visit Topkapi Palace we stayed for a light lunch in Konyali Lokantasi Topkapi Palace. The view is amazing!!! that’s all.. The restaurant stuff give you the table they want, even if you explain to them that you want to be nearby the sea. Not only this… very expensive… we ordered on chicken shish, one salad ans one plate... More

This place must be experienced due to it's setting and the views. I had the beef steak which was delicious and was presented beautifully. On the downside the WiFi was too slow/not working and your meal will cost you an arm. Considering even the street food in Sultanahmet is delicious and very cheap I dropped 1 star because I felt...

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

Had a prebooked set lunch arranged by travelagent .It was a very basic , poor and an expensive. Crowded an dirty toilets added to this bad experiance. The only positive impression was the view ,and that was free. We will bring our picknic next time .

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
