Ambiance/Location: Located under the Galata Bridge with a beautiful view! Well, that's it... The Restaurant is cheaply decorated with Greek-locking stuff, but it's not worth to talk about any more. Service: Was very friendly and good. Unfortunately, we went to know why when the bill arrived. They stay friendly even in the discussion about the price, but it felt false... More

The food was not bad, but charging 500 lira for a single Turbot is criminal. Just shows how much more TA is worth than the hotel recommendation.

You have to be aware of this restaurant, these are bandites when they presented the bill, which is not transparent at all. The food is nothing special but the bill was surprisingly high, 690 TL for 3 persons! Avoid this restaurant if you can. These are professional bandites to rob innocent tourists.

Neighbourhood Profile
Karakoy
Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most historically significant area, it’s currently one of the most happening parts of town as well. Here street vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks of the Horn where the views of major attractions across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions, such as the iconic 14th century Galata Tower and the Museum of Modern Art. A major hub for local and international waterborne traffic, Istanbul’s commercial and maritime heritage remains as relevant and evident as ever in Karakoy. Commuter ferries mingle with luxury cruise liners at its busy port, ensuring a continuously cosmopolitan flow of people..
