I've been to Gallipoli many times over the past twenty years. The food is always excellent with attentive yet not overbearing service. In a street packed full of eateries, this place is always busy, surely a good sign.

We went there recently, for the first time. They sat us in the back room next to the entrance, there was clearly no space for a table there, very uncomfortable, every time waitress passed me to get through to the other tables, she was knocking on my chair constantly, the whole place is really packed with tables with barely any...

Excellent Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine. Smallish and very popular, but definitely worth trying to get a table.

I been to this restaurant twice, in oct and august this year. Both times I had the meat moussaka which is simply excellent! Light and full of vegetable, and apart from the cheese on top it doesn't feel or taste fat at all. It is served with a salad on the side which is also spot-on, simple but super fresh... More

Went here on a Saturday night and there was no seating inside but there were seats outside where there are overhead heaters. There was a birthday going on inside, so to be safe it would probably be better to book in advance and it's obviously very popular. The food was outstanding, service was quick and the staff were really nice.... More

We talked to a young London couple on the flight over to Great Britain. They highly recommended the Gallipoli Bistro. It was a good tip. My wife and I loved the food. We went there in the late afternoon. It is a walk from the Angel Underground. We were welcomed by a young man and woman that seated us and... More

A year later and the food is still very good ;) nothing has changed ! Nice setup and a cozy dining room with a touch of Turkish history. Food was once again delicious! Good Iskender kebab and a good glass of Turkish wine! To close with a sweet baklava and a Turkish coffee!

Upper Street in Islington has a number of good food outlets, but my favourite is the Gallipoli Bistro. The food is great, the interior decoration with all its lamps and pictures create a very special setting and with a very competent staff, this is a place to come back to.
