“Innovative cuisine”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

If you are looking for something a little different than the standard Turkish cafe dinner offerings, try Kiva. Don't be fooled by its Galata Tower location-- food is imaginatively prepared, and take standards and does them different.

This restaurant is located right next to the Galata Tower. There are great choices on the menu, and you can see lots of the dishes and select from them. The staff were friendly and helpful.

“Fantastic time at this restaurant!”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

This restaurant is in a great spot at the foot of the Galata Tower with a relaxed but upbeat atmosphere. Our waiters, Yasim and Halil were absolutely lovey and we had a magical evening enjoying the delicious Anatolian food. Can't fault this restaurant, both the food and the service were excellent and I would recommend it to anyone.
