I have been to Dostlar twice with choir friends, and have always enjoyed it immensely. It doesn't look anything special from the outside, but don't let that put you off, the food is amazing!
The first time we ate there was after a choir concert in Nicosia in October 2009, and Hulya sorted us out with a delicious late night meal of kleftico. I'd never eaten kleftico before, but now I wouldn't want to eat it anywhere else, as it was melt-in-the-mouth tasty. The service was good, the price great, food wonderful and the view of a lightning storm over the sea made it an evening to remember.
We returned again in June 2011 and I knew that I would have to have the kleftico again. It was as delicious as I had remembered! Again, Hulya looked after us superbly, and we spent another very enjoyable evening eating and drinking in the covered outdoor dining area.
When I visit Cyprus again, Dostlar will definitely be on my "must visit" list.

If you're in the Kyrenia, Karaoglanoglu or Alsancak areas of Cyprus you are doing yourself a massive disfavour if you do not visit this restaurant.

Chic it is not. Boutique it is not. There are no frills and the location itself is very basic. But the food is to die for. This family run restaurant has been in existence for at least 20 years. They are from Sivas on the mainland and the food is all very fresh and absolutely delicious.

They do wonderul pide (pizza) and lahmacun (spicy minced lamb flatbreads) and the kebabs are very succulent. The bread is made on the spot, the salad is crisp and fresh and the chips are home made and of a superb texture. The best of all though is the kleftiko which sometimes you have to order in advance. It literally melts in the mouth and, served with a Cyprus potato, is absolutely delicious.

We've been visiting the Dostlar for around 20 years and have never been disappointed and they've grasped the concept of chilled white wine which a lot of places haven''t What ever happens do not be put put off by the appearance. All the la de da restaurants in this part of the world tend to charge British prices. Here you can eat superb food very cheaply.
