Lovely cafe restaurant in side street with good food and service. Try the kebabs and bean side salad with iced tea.

There's nothing fancy about this place. Menu is simple and no alcohol, but if you love food for food, then don't miss this experience. They simply have the best kofte and cop sis within hundreds of miles (competes with cop sis from Selcuk). If you bring a date here and she enjoys the night, marry her--you got one that enjoys...

You can easily find this restaurant in Yalikavak with its very tasty meatballs and yoghurt. The prices are reasonable. But if its crowded you may wait for some time.

This is a family friendly joint with good quality "kofte" and "cop sis"; Turkish meat balls and mini lamb cubes on skewers respectively. You sit at wooden tables on the street. Waiters are speedy quick, menu is simple. Can't go wrong to give it a try. Delicious.

They have done it right each time. Very juicy meatballs. I recommend ordering a double portion and get the white bean salad. Locals know this is the place for kofte.... More

Excellent Köfte for a reasonable place in the center of the old shopping district under the trees The restaurant offers only Köfte (meat balls), Piyaz (dry beans with onion) and skewed meat. These come with bread toasted in a special way. I have subtracted one star because the owner did not allow free internet to customers.

Two weeks in Yalikavak and this place was awful and the worst visited. We had three lamb sis skewered on something not much bigger than a cocktail stick, served with a few pieces of tomatoe and lettuce all served on a tiny metal dish, usually used for mezze - the pieces of lamb were no bigger than my small finger...

I could not believe the service that I encountered. I asked the restaurant accross the street to take my food from there to the mentioned restuarant (K.K.). But they told me Kavakli Köfteci (K.K.)would not accept me there. So I asked if I could bring there food, he told me to ask K.K. When I spoke with K.K. They refused... More
