It is a good terrace with a great view to the Bosphorus. Well located close to the Galata Tower. Prices are not cheap. Service is ok. Nothing spectacular, but interesting to take a visit.

A place to go if you are around the Galata Tower. You can see the tower and view of Marmara sea. We went there in the afternoon for a tea, cool place to hang out or chill.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
