Inside Topkapi Palace, near the 4th courtyard. You can see a signboard, and just walk down. It offers good view of the Bosphorus Strait. Good for having a coffee break, after all the walking. Be prepared to pay 5-7x more than outside though, for a cup of coffee. However, we have no complains, as we are in a palace, and... More

This cafe in the grounds of the topkapi palace, has great views over the Bosporus. we had coffee, fruit and cake, which was all very good, I thought it was a bit on the pricey side compared to similar fayre we have had elsewhere in Istanbul, but I guess the location commands a premium

During a private tour trough old town Istanbul we had lunch in this place. It's situated within the sultan palace complex and has a really fantastic view over Bosphorus. As we where there with our guide, which knew the people, we were treated super friendly. Food was great and so we really enjoyed the time between the walks.

Empty at 11am on Friday in July, staff were very friendly and I didn't at all mind paying TL13 for my black coffee considering how spectacular the view is. You get what you pay for.

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

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood 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.
