Out business delegation was taken to this hotel after a long day of meetings, and the dinner couldn't have been better. There is a wide selection of food items to choose from, including sea food and kebaps... The food was excellent and the service extraordinary.. Its slightly on the higher side in terms of prices, but you get what you... More

In Ankara there are few places that you can have a special dinner. This is a correct place. They have a very rich menu and food is always fresh.

You can eat a wide spectrum of Turkish cuisine in Göksu. Fish, chicken and meat is always well prepared and served in a otantic atmosphere. Due to the origin of the owners of this restaurant, typical food of eastern black sea coast are the best dishes. Never miss the French souffle in the end. It is the best in Ankara.

We had a conference dinner here, organized by Baskent University. We were in a separate room, inside what is a huge building over many floors, and ours had a spectacular view. The food was just gorgeous; served quickly; at prices that are high by Ankara standards, but that are still entirely reasonable by international standards. I would return here.

I had a lunch there, and everything was above expectation. The menu in Turkish and English, the prompt service, the cleanliness and enough space, the quality of meals, and the prices (hot meals from 10 to 40 liras, tea is free, half liter of water for 1 TL. The staff was not speaking English but it is common in Ankara,... More

This is a high-end restaurant. If you don't appreciate good wine, food and service, I recommend another location. Absolutely beautiful interior, and great view from rooftop level. Tables were not too close to each other, like other restaurants in Ankara. No English menu, but waite staff spoke English. Abundant food choices. Parking in the area is very limited. We ordered...

Goksu is located in the heart of Ankara close to Tunali Hilmi. Dishes were tasteful, service was good, ambiance was perfect. Try borek and grilled lamb. It seems fishes are fresh and delicious too. They play violin and piano during dinner. It deserves a visit to taste Turkish cuisine.

The restaurant has four floors and a roof (open in the summer evenings). You can have either lunch or dinner. They have brunch (long breakfast) on Sundays. They have nearly all kind of typical...
