So you get to sit at the most private corner of the Sultan's palace and eat great Turkish food overlooking the Bosporus near Saray Point, what's not to like? Yes, it's not 5 star but the food is good, authentic but pricey for what it is, but you can sit for hours over a meal or just a glass of... More

We were lucky and found a table in the shade on a scorching hot day. The views from this place are amazing. The service is good and you’ll find a few tour guides here, (usually a good sign). The food and drinks were good. Would like to spend an hour here another day on another visit.

We just happened upon this restaurant while touring Topkapi Palace. The view was fantastic and we were tired. We weren't expecting much, as restaurants in such places are usually mediocre at best. We were pleasantly surprised. The service was great. The waiter helped with recommendations after inquiring what my preferences were. Everything he suggested was superb. My husband had the... More

we stopped there because we had walked around over 3 hours, and suddenly from a terrace we saw the view, the sun, the nice tables... and that was it! WQe decided it was time to lunch so we just checked prices, found them acceptable to our budget of 10 to 15 euros per person, and we landed eager to taste... More

We have been lucky enjoying our dinners and breakfast in this restaurant. Delicious desserts and nice buffet but if you can choose and go for lunch, it won´t dissapoint you. Try to eat on thursday: Aegean Fish. There are plenty of dishes and after my election, lubine, I´m sure all of them will be extremely Tasty and delicious.

Konyali is located on the Topkapi Palace grounds. If you plan to spend most of the day at the Palace/Museum, this is a great place to take a break, relax and re-energize yourself. Ask to be seated in the outer periphery of the restaurant, so you can enjoy the gorgeous views of Asia and Europe! Service and food are both... More

If you wish to taste the Ottoman Cuisine after your Topkapi Palace tour I highly recommend you to stop in Konyali. Besides the tasty food the view you have while eating is one of the best. No wonder why they are always busy.

This restaurant has drop dead gorgeous views of the Bosphorus. We sat at the full service restaurant and had attentive and outstanding service all the while looking at the opulent views. We had asked the waiters for food recommendations and they were excellent. Expensive, but not exorbitant food- but consider the location.

Had lunch at the Cafe section. Shared a can of Coke and a chicken pastry for TL 33. At least they could have put a bit of chicken in but the pastry was OK. There are people selling icy cold bottles of water for TL 1 and others selling Cobs of corn for TL 2 just outside the entrance. I... More
