We stumbled across this bistro while attempting to leave the hustle & bustle of the main shopping street. It was a little piece of homely tranquility in an otherwise bustling area. Hidden down a side street the staff will greet you with the warmest welcome!...More

Lovely little cafe with a nice selection of fresh food. The menu changes daily but everything we had tasted great. They also have a local Turkish wine that we would recommend. We even made friends with a cat on the roof terrace.

We had wonderful lunch at Nakka Bistro. Big portions of salad. Curry chicken was very good as well. We sat at the terrace on the third floor facing the old beautiful building.

One of the best places we visited in Galata. Delicious food, wonderfully friendly staff - and on the 3rd floor they have a great open air terrace. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the Istanbul for a couple days, and got in love with this cozy, laid back place. Great coffee, nice cookies, music and wi-fi - you cant ask for anything more :) And the people who are working there are super nice too!...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
