Our group of high school students had enjoyed nine days of traditional Turkish food, but we were getting a little homesick for some good American food. Midpoint was a welcome surprise!! The location is perfect about halfway up Taksim between Galata Tower and Taksim Square.

Some in our group ordered quesadillas (with excellent guacamole), while others had pasta and even big, tasty burgers. Everything that was ordered was wonderful and cooked to perfection!!

I would compare the variety of food choices to a TGI Fridays or similar casual dining. If you're looking for a break from traditional Turkish food, Midpoint is the place to go!!

The name says it all - this restaurant is half-way down Istiklal Street. A perfect place to stop for lunch. The food was very tasty. There were four of us and we all ordered salads. All the salads were large and delicious. I had a grilled turkey salad with pomegranate dressing.

There is a nice view out the back of the restaurant and the seating was comfortable. The only problem is the number of smokers, but if you want to eat outside, then you must be prepared to tolerate the smoke.

Had nice lunch with colleagues...had very nice Caesar salad with nice Turkish white wine. Was very nice. Probably the best part of the restaurant is the breathtaking view over Bosphorus

This restaurant has awesome views. You can sit outside on the rooftop and enjoy your delicious meal while looking at Bosphorus. Their drinks were great. The service was really bad though and that was mainly due to too many customers and not as many waiters.

Midpoint Galatasaray is at an excellent venue. Easy to reach but hard to find a seat:) The terrace is nice if you can get a table at the front, especially for the evening. You can see the great Golden Horn and Topkapı Palace view with night lights on. Service is a bit slow because the terrace is always full and the waiters are good but not enough to serve fast enough. If you get a table at the sides, unfortunately not much to see but the walls of the surrounding buildings...
