Why locals love it

This delightful top floor restaurant and café offers a fantastic panorama of Istanbul. If there’s a long queue at the Galata Tower and you still fancy seeing the city from the sky, head here for an almost identical view.

Why you should visit it

The owners of this place have run a pâtisserie since 1975, so you can expect a wide range of delicious cakes, pastries and other baked goods. They also serve salads, sandwiches and meat dishes. Keep in mind that the prices are above average.

Special tip

Order a cup of tea or coffee, soak up the views and watch the seagulls as they fly overhead.

Well, I wouldn't praise the service, prices or staff here but the view is amazing. You can see the beautiful Bosphorus also historical peninsula from here. On the other side you can view the part of Galata Tower. Their desserts are delicious by the way.

This is a must cafe to visit while you are in galata tower area. The view is so wide that you can see galata tower, golden horn, sultanahmet area, bosphorous area / bosphorous bridge and asian side of Istanbul. Nice place to have breakfast or for a coffee break.
