A lot of walk to explore Topkapi Palace. We say many halls. At last we had 20 minutes to have a good view and relax. We spent it this restaurant having one scoop of ice cream. It costs TL 5 only.

The Konyali is in a wonderful location overlooking Saray Point at the junction of the Bosphorus, the Golden Horn and the Sea od Marmara. It is the only restaurant in the Palace grounds and charges accordingly. It offers a good range of dishes and is a great place for an extended lunch when you need a rest in the middle... More

This has been on of my favorite cafes, you get to see the entire Bosporus view from the terrace of the cafe and it's simply breathtaking! They serve great dessert, I was tempted to have it all! Make sure to try their rice pudding- bu lezzetli! As they say it Turkish. Simply delicious

A beautiful study in opulence. Beautiful tile work, carvings,vaulted ceilings, marble, carpets, etc.. Crowds of well mannered school kids learning about their cultural heritage. The lawns and gardens were extensive with wonderful views of the Sea of Marmara and the Bosporus. Historically, the Sultans were killed by family members, so being Sultan was not great. The buildings housed jewels,weapons, religious... More

Self-serve. After walking for hours through Topkapi Palace, this is a nice place to relax, have a refreshing drink and a snack. Overpriced, and they were out of some foods when we went through, but still worth it. The outside terrace is covered, which protects against sun and rain. And it is big enough that you can move to find... More

The konyali has the perfect view of Bosphorus and relaxing atmosphere after the Topkapi Palace visit. Restaurant was pricey but the view was worth it.

You certainly pay for the view! - about €8 for a simple pastry, drinks even worse. At the time it was cantine-help-yourself.

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.
