We had a small lunch here, seated at the table just inside the open window. It was a very good location; close to the Galata Tower. But the food was also pretty good.

After admiring the Galata Tower, we decided to eat somewhere close. We choose this restaurant and did not regret it! The food can be chosen at the moment (a kind of buffet), where they mount your plate accordingly to what you've chosen. We decided to...More

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
