I always wanted to visit this place and eat the famous Esqomry fish sandwitch, the sandwitch isnt really worth it but the experience is a must. Enrich it with a torsho (pickles) cup and freshly squeezed lemonade.

The boats just rocked away on the water and the view was amazing. Thoroughly recommend the day cruise which departs from here.

Fresh fish, directly out of the stove your bread. With some turkish shalgam drink it's a good snack before you move to your next location, sultanahmet side or to Taksim across the galata bridge considering which side you have covered first. Rather than having a fish meal in a restaurant under the galata bridge this place is a lot cheaper... More

Nice little pier near Sirkeci. This is where you embark on your Bhosphorus cruises as well as get ferries and boat rides or a water taxi to various points in the city. They also have several restaurants underneath the Galata bridge. Beware of the many salesman that will try to sell you a Bhosphorus cruise for an overly inflated price.... More

Its def a must to have a fish sandwich in Istanbul and it was only $6 which was not too bad but they do have bones. The place can get crowded but the lines move quickly and just find a seat nearby to enjoy it.

I had heard much about the fish sandwiches at the Eminonu peer, and I admit that the fish is delicious but everyone should be aware that if your not careful you could choke on the bones in the fish.

Was told by a friend that the fresh fish sandwiches beside Galata bridge was a local favorite so I made my way here. For $6 Turkish Lira you get grilled fish with lettuce and onions on a bun. It was so good I came back twice. Nearby is the New Mosque and Spice Bazaar so at least there are other... More

This area is neally always busy and is bursting with the aura of old Istanbul. You can buy fresh fish for pennies or sit down and enjoy an ice cream as the pleasure craft chug along the Bhophorus in front of you!
