Food experience is great and can recommend the fish and chips. Strongbow on draft is fab. Looking forward to getting back there soon. Keep it up your doing just great.

The addition of the enclosed bar for winter makes this a really nice all year round place to go. The food is always predictably good and the family very welcoming to both old and new customers. Traditional and pleasant to be in.

We have been visiting Dostlars since first coming to the island in 2000, very friendly local restaurant initially run by Huyla and her parents and now with her brother and family. Really missed the year it was closed when father wished to retire but glad they are now going from strength to strength. Looking forward to being back on the... More

We always visit Dostlars, why, because the service is always friendly. Hulya alway greets you like family and not just customers. The food is very good traditional home cooked food. And the other customers are a happy friendly bunch, over the years we have shared meals with many friends here.

On our first night we made a bee line for the Dostlar which does the best Turkish food cheaply. I am willing to bet that many people are put off the place by it's unpretentious appearance. Do not let this influence you one iota. If you appreciate good home cooked food at a reasonable price then at least give it... More

A very understated building and one that I have driven passed many times and not noticed it. I joined some friends for dinner as they have been going for many years and highly recommend it. I class myself as a very fussy eater. It surprised me that I found a few things on the menu that I liked. There is... More

Huyla, her mum & dad run this little gem, this year with help from a lovely student from Pakistan. We love this place & the welcome is second to none. We have eaten here often over the years. Simple menu but all fresh ingredients & very well cooked to order. Kleftico is to die for but you need to pre... More

Dostlar is everything that is good about a small family run restaurant. There is a simple Turkish menu with no pretentions or frills. Just simple, home cooked food served fresh from the wood fuelled stove. Kleftico available when pre ordered and repeat customers recognised and welcomed. We mistakenly overpaid on our first night - befuddled by lack of sleep, mixed... More

Just returned from 2 weeks in Kyrenia during which we spent two nights dining at the Dostlar. We also frequented the restaurant two years earlier and it does not appear to have changed at all. Menu is limited but everything appears to be cooked to order. Kleftico unavailable this time but tried it in 2010 and it was excellent. Obviously... More
