If you're in the neighborhood for the Galata Tower, this is a great place to stop for breakfast/brunch.

“Fantastic brunch, I want more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

A friendly service team offered us one of the best brunches of my life, a large range of Turkish tapas—some sweet, some savoury—with a touch of Georgian specialities.
Homemade juice-mixes, coffee variations and even wine (which is becoming rarer in Istanbul) capped an agreeable experience I can only wish anybody.
They also very nicely told us (five persons) that we should go with only three orders, as it would be enough and it was - I love it when people don't oversell their products nor reduce portion sizes to make more profit...

I strongly suggest to reserve a table though...

“Great cafe for dinner too”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

Following other good reviews we looked for Privato after visiting the Galata Tower. Courteous, charming staff, good well crafted food and reasonable prices. The view of the floodlit Tower through the rear was a bonus.
