Tourist trap, overly aggressive sales pitch. Cold oily food. The meatballs smelled like cheap frozen burger patties that had been left outside the fridge too long. The only edible part of the meal was the Coca-Cola. I have had some pretty bad meals in my...life. This was the worst. By far.More

The venue is very good. The staff and the flavor of the dishes were excellent. It has a unique view. If you ask me, it's a place for everyone to see. The seafood is very tasty

The night we went there , some good Turkish music and dances ! Don't know if it happens daily. We ordered drinks which were fine but the Sheesha / Huqqa was a bit off and we didn't enjoy it must. Prices for Huqqa are good.... 25 TL onlyMore

Very tasty and reasonably priced restaurant on the Galata Bridge. Efes beer, delicious meals and seafood, excellent service. In fact, we'd stopped there by chance, but after it we met sunsets in Istanbul just there and nowhere else.

The row of eateries under the Galata Bridge is extremely crowded and noisy. But this one is quite different: first the outside seats are placed so that we could watch the water. A cold drink along with a hotly prepared anchovy dish can be a...superb way to end one hectic tourist's day.More

This is your place when you want to drink Efes draught beer and smoke great nargile. By the river the outlook is beautiful. But not the cheapest place in town.
