We have chosen the restaurant because it was Turkish wedding party inside. And because all other restaurants were too laud and too insisting in desire to get us inside. Lucky I have read all bad reviews afterwards, otherwise I would never choose it! Our experience was great, food was tasty, service was very good and the Bosporus view was just... More

This is a quiet restaurant located under a bridge. Like other contributors have stated, they too reduced the menu prices to get our group's business, there were 6 of us. Overall, not too bad, but nothing really worth mentioning. Wait staff were keen to serve us and we drank free tea after dinner. All up, just OK.

The come on guy promised us grilled fish with mashed potatoes and vegetables, live music, and complimentary coffee and dessert. He wanted us to be happy eating there and promised we didn't have to pay if we weren't.. On the menu the grilled fish was 18 lira, but we had to buy by the kilo at 80 lira for two.... More

We crossed the Bridge one evening and were practically eaten alive by all the Restaurant owners promoting their place. Some of them were really agressive. The guy at New Galata seemed nice enough and we wondered if we should try it out, as we were in Istanbul for a number of nights. So we went back the next evening. Several... More

we loved the restaurant, and the wonderful view. the manager, ahmet, is wonderful. I have never had such a fabulous birthday dinner in my life. we have friends who will be in Istanbul this month, and we have already recommended the restaurant. turkish hospitality and relaxation is like no other in the world.

This restaurant is located right on the beautiful Bosphorus along with about 20 other restaurants who are all competing for your business. We chose this restaurant after looking at menus, prices, and whether or not we saw locals in them. The service here was great; the head waiter doted on us and the staff was extremely friendly & attentive. We... More

I HATE GETTING RIPPED OFF This place is one of many fish restaurants that you will find under the bridge that the tramway uses to cross water from Saltenarmet to the modern side side of the city. We had a very average meal here and although the service was great, that comes as standard anywhere in Turkey. I had a... More
