Lunch at Galata


We are one of the rare places in Finland with Turkish Wine in selection. Turkey benefits from a vast number of indigenous grape varieties and has an ancient winemaking history. That's why Galata has already selected some of the finest Turkish wine bottles for 2018.

Turkish cuisine strictly relies on quality olive oil, fresh vegetables, tender meat, natural spices, and other important elements. That's why Galata supplies only the finest ingredients to bring up the maximum flavor to our lunch and menu dishes.
