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

We stopped there not for the food but for a coffee. This place is a mixt between a bistro, a coffee shop, and an hotel. Ambiance chilled, and a little bit hipster! I like it.

We tried Nakka as we were staying nearby and really loved it. There's a nice relaxed atmosphere and a great casual terrace. The food was great! And pretty large portions. We would definitely recommend it and would go back.

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
