I was unsure to choose Tbilisi for travel or Istanbul! But I prefered Istanbul again to visit this great city for the third time!
So as I heard a lot about Georgian food, and looked for a georgian restaurant in Istanbul before our travel and I fine Galata House Restaurant!
I can not explain how it was great! Very nice couple who own this restaurant. Very friendly and kind. Great atmosphere. The building was a Perison before. We talked a lot. The food was very very fresh and delicious. His wife played piano and sang a song for us in the middle of our dinner. It was a great exprience. Don't miss it. It was open since 1999...

This restaurant is overflowing with history and hospitality. The delicious food and cozy environment is a reflection of the owners' warmth and care for their guests. We enjoyed the Russian soup, cold appetizer plate, beef stroganoff, and tatar ashi paired with a bottle of white wine. Enjoy your night in one of the most lovely districts in Istanbul with good company and lovely piano music to accompany you!

The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming. We ordered a lot of cold starters and a Bilincik, which was a Russian crepe. The starters were very good. I ordered an Ostri which is a veal goulash. Excellent and warming dish, just needed some salt. Someone else ordered a Cakapuli, the lamb stew. The lamb was tender but the plum sauce was a little tart. Overall good food.

Traditional Georgian food served by the most wonderful hosts. We loved sharing the intimacy of the table perched in the bay window and chatting to the charismatic owner... what a place!
