Built at one edge of the Topkapi Palace the cafe / restaurant commands an unbeatable view of Istanbul. The sight of large cargo and other ships sailing in and out of Istanbul is entrancing. That's the food part. The food is overpriced and underwhelming for the most part. The stuffed meat dolma was good and flavorful but the doner main... More

Touring the Topkapi Palace Grounds can be exhausting so dining at this location where the Sultans ate for centuries is a real treat. Spend a little more for the full service restaurant which is more than most places in Istanbul, but still 1/4 the price of a comparable place in the US. Food was quite good and authentic and service... More

We went here as part of a guided tour for a "taste of authentic Turkish cuisine". All I can say was that it was awful. Basically, this is a tourist rip-off. I has good views but that's all there is to commend it. You'd do better to take a packed lunch.

No fancy service, no signature dish and no special thing about this place. Yes to be honest, thanks to the Ottoman Sultans for building Topkapi palace on top of that hill, the view is amazing. But sadly nothing more. Do not expect a great meal, but instead just enjoy the magical view of Bosphorus

My husband and I had lunch at this restaurant inside the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul. We sat at a table overlooking the Bosphorus which was quite pleasant. They have both a self service cafeteria and a sit down restaurant. We shared a meze platter which had about 8 different things on it, some of which we had not seen before... More

Located in the Fourth Courtyard, the restaurant offers incredible views of the Bosphorus Strait. Dining at a table under an umbrella is an enjoyable experience on a hot, sunny day. Food was average but good and service was quick and efficient. My salad, entree, and drink cost me 87 TL so value is low.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
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.
