We were invited so I do not know the cost but the food was very good and the service was fine. The seating outside was very nice but the inside needs renovation, especially the restrooms.

In our two week trip to Turkey, we had a chance to visit Kosebasi Izmir. We decided to eat at this restaurant by reading on tripadvisor and the recommendation by our hotel staff. This restaurant by far the best traditional Anatolian cuisine we have tasted. Excellent seaside location, very friendly owner, professional staff and fairly priced. Highly recommended.

While visiting Izmir with my husband who is Turkish (I'm an American), this restaurant came highly recommended by his friends who live in Izmir. This place definitely lived up to its recommendation and I'm so glad we decided to go here; its traditional Turkish kebaps are so juicy and delicious, the multilingual staff and owner, Berat Uygur, made us feel so welcomed! He is the definition of Turkish hospitality and made our experience truly unforgettable!

This restaurant was highly recommended to me by many people, so I chose it for dinner during my one night stay in Izmir, and sure enough, the food and the whole experience was amazing! The restaurant specializes in classic Turkish kebaps, which they prepare masterfully! Besides the amazing food, the location of the restaurant, the hospitality of the staff and the service was fantastic!

If you live in Izmir area, or visiting from out of town, this seaside restaurant is a must see!

In our short stay in Izmir we had the opportunity to go to this restaurant. Our tour guide recommend this one. The communication with the staff was rather difficult. The food is really very good and paired with those delicious and unpretentious turkish wines made us have an incredible afternoon.
