“Nice view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

The service was very good, as you would experience in non-touristic restaurants in Istanbul. The restaurant overlooked the sea.

“Great view on the city & good kitchen”

We got here by chance & were absolute fascinated by great view & excellent food. Fresh fish & seafood. Not big choice of wine. Tables near window are excellent!

“Best view Seafood Restaurant in Istanbul”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

I have been to this restaurant 2 weeks ago and I am so much surprised.As a local I know it is too difficult to find a seafood restaurant around that area with a view and food like this.I wanted to write a review since I always feel sorry about tourists who are in that area and dont know where to go.Especially tourists from cruise ships,who has limited time and cant go Bosphorus.This restaurant with its white table clothes,amazing food and incredible view should not be missed.The service was very attentive.While we were there,we met the owner who travels a lot and enjoys good food.He said, he is a professional in finance sector which you can understand easily the way he runs his restaurant.I took great photos while I was there.I live in Bosphorus but soon, I will go back to this Karakoy fish restauarant to taste their great food .

“View, table-settings, taste, all great !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

There are two Galatali's, one on the Asian side, the other on the European... both is placed wonderfully... the European one is easier for tourists to reach and has much better view of old Istanbul... White clean sheets, wonderful tasting sea-food... not too cheap but deserves every penny... the sea-food in Istanbul is great anyway, but Galatali makes it perfect...

“Great fish dishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

I had exceptional fish dishes at this restaurant. The manager spoke fluent English and did a good job in suggesting menu choices. The service was very good, as you would experience in non-touristic restaurants in Istanbul. The restaurant overlooked the sea. During summer, it had an open roof and added bonus to the ambience. Booking is highly recommended or you have to come early.
