Gallipoli Cafe & Bistro is a charmingly popular restaurant in Islington that serves a menu of Turkish & Mediterranean cuisine. We are situated at 102 Upper Street, Angel & Islington. Gallipoli Cafe & Bistro started back in 1996, were two very passionate and extremely driven individuals Enver and Erdal Ucar who embarked on opening the first of what would go on to become a chain of three Gallipoli restaurants all within a short stretch of upper street, Islington.
We the co-founders had one thing and one thing in mind when we embarked on this journey, “customer satisfaction”. With a genuine interest and desire to provide excellent food, our authentic Turkish & Mediterranean cuisine proved to be a big hit and saw Gallipoli Cafe & Bistro transform into a very lively and popular hot spot.
We deliberately set out to create a place with great character and ambiance,
We came up with the idea of an Ottoman-themed décor which fabulously displays dangling lamps and trinkets hanging from the ceiling, walls completely covered with a quaint prints framed in a collage display.
To get the full effect, the evenings show off the Bistro at its best. You can enjoy a delectable menu of meats, fish and various vegetarian dishes.
Along with our fresh and healthy menu we have friendly staff at your beck and call, they drive a very efficient service so our customers can enjoy a wonderful dinning experience.
We graciously became known as the place to come for romantic meals, dinning with friends, birthday celebrations because we offered a fun and entertaining experience.
Belly dancing is one of the treats you can enjoy at Gallipoli’, those celebrating birthdays can let loose by dancing on chairs and the ringing of cowbells hanging from the ceiling then after be serenaded with happy birthday being sung to the celebrant by the waiting staff. Fellow diners are also encouraged to sing along.
The vibrant blue exterior shows off the quaint bistro quite attractively, with al-fresco dining, the uniqueness can be soaked up outside as well as in. standing out front you can see just how the hanging lamps and trinkets illuminate like sparkling gems in the window giving passers-by a treat to feast their eyes on.
After 18 years of such huge success we continue, and never cease in paying close attention to all of the core values we have here at Gallipoli’s.
We insist on sustaining those values without compromise and because we are so thrilled over the popularity of our charming establishments, your appreciation of the service we provide acts as fuel to feed and drive us to continue on the path we have set ourselves on by delivering quality food and customer satisfaction always.
