Pleaseant tour group luncheon w/a beautiful view of the Bosphorus

We had an enjoyable luncheon as part of a tour group. All items on the multi-course Turkish luncheon were good to very good. The portions were generous. The service efficient albeit hurried. Seating was very tight. I cannot comment on the value given the meal was part of a tour. Our view... read more

We came here as part of our visit of the Topakapi Palace and Blue Mosque. Celebrity Cruise excursion chose this restaurant. The food was plentiful but not well prepared and not tasty!

We had lunch here at the cafe. It was very nice. The view out over the bospherous is gorgeous. The cafe was basically self serve with a wide choice of sandwiches, hot plates, and desserts. Although not cheap, it was very nice and relaxing.

At the end of Topkapi Palace, this restaurant has a fantastic terrace facing the Bosphorus. The food was very good, they have Turkish and western varieties. The price was a bit higher, but it was worth it.

I've been here before. Despite how crowded it can become, the service is excellent, the menu vast, and the overall experience, looking out over the Bosphorus is not to be missed. I highly recommend lunch or a meal here when visiting Topkapi.

Konyali offers a beautiful view of the Bosphorous in a pleasant environment. The prices are on the higher side - to be expected as it is located inside the palace - and th e food is nothing special. If you decide to go, it is worth the overall experience.

Which is why I'm reluctantly giving this restaurant 5 stars, just for the glorious views alone, unlike the ongoing ridiculous prices here. The fact that they have a "Captive" audience inside this magnificent palace and this being the only Cafe/Restaurant on site, says it all I'm afraid. However, as we were getting kinda "Palace'd " out after several hours wandering... More

The restaurant located inside the Topkapi Palace in a very nice location overlooking the Phosphorous. The food is good but I think the prices and taxes are very high compared to food quality. I think the reason is the location and the fact that it's the only restaurant in the palace area, so if you are hungry you have to... More

On one side is the historic Topkapi Palace premises and the other side the sea. Wonderful view while you take a break from having roamed the Topkapi Palace and your legs would be crying for a bit of break!!!
