You will have interesting views from the bridge, but is not an outstanding place. There are many fish (and expensive) restaurants below the bridge, but the locals avoid them

Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the
Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in
search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name
jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed
cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow
streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to
the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the
evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside

Far, but you can get funicular to Taksim square, then walk on famous Istiklal street, which will get you to Galata tower and then - Galata Bridge. Easy and beautiful
