Be like the locals and have a fish sandwich at one of the places on the Eminonu pier. The atmosphere is bustling and it is always a good sign that your fellow eaters are to a large extent locals. Great value at 8 TL and a filling mid afternoon snack. You can take the train to Eminonu and then a... More

Place crowded of people (locals, tourists,...) just walking, taking a Bosforo cruise or a boat to or arriving from the Asian part of the city, eating some take away watermelon or boiled corn. It's enjoyable to merge with the flow of people or look at the hundreds of them from the Galata bridge

Catch your ferry from here, I think it was 12tl per person. Kids were free. You get to see a lot of the attractions from here. Unless you want in depth view, then you will have yo visit the site by foot. I found the Galata tower worth it by foot. Nice way to catch a nap on the way... More

Quite crowded place. However, u dont get irritated by that. U can enjoy amazing view of boshphorus and taste delicious fish bread (balik ekmek) at the same time.(price 10 TL) Also u can find quite elite restaurants under the Galata bridge.

Getting a grilled fish sandwich off a boat was a unique experience. The sandwich itself was good, not great, but cheap enough to warrant the experience. Great people watching area, too, and a stone's throw away from the Eminonu stop.

This busy spot comes alive as a centre for boats and ferries taking trips out on the Bosporus. It is also bustling with local fishermen selling their catches and kiosks offering an array of local snacks and delicacies. We went over a weekend and it was packed.
