  • Amazing view of Bosporus river while dining. A good place and must have dinner once when visiting Istanbul. Verity of restaurants offering different foods. Enjoy the view of Bosporus and ferries under the one of the oldest bridges over river.

  • Interesting bridge with numerous restaurants below connecting old Constantinople with newer part of the city. Do come in sunset and night as it is interesting to see with so many locals and tourists around. During the fall of Constantinople Turks made floating bridge here and this current one is fifth bridge on same location.

  • Very nice, authentic place. You get the feeling of beeing a part of Istanbul. I like it very much. I like fish sandwich serving in near restaurants on boats. At evenings there is special atmosphere, especially on weekends. There is Spice bazar near Galata bridge.. On the other side of the river we can see Galata tower. There is also nice atmosphere in the evening.

  • Such lovely view of the Bousphore also good place to meet all the fishermen on this bridge around the clock. This bridge full with local restaurants on both sides of the bridge plus so delicious sea foods.

  • Interesting spot with lots of fish restaurants and a wonderful smell of fish everywhere. Cool photo spot, lots of fisherman on the bridge fishing all day every day.
