We stopped here just because we were really hungry during our Nicea visit. The kofte and the sucuk were so delicious that we decided to come back here just to eat again. You can also order salad and yogurt. It should be noted that the service was very fast

I only advise you to taste the delicious meatballs of Kofteci Yusuf here, this is because the main branch and the location is good on your visit to İznik. Fast and good service, complimentary starters and the best part is the dessert called "kaymakli Ekmek kadayifi" which you shouldn't miss

We were driving to Bursa and my friend insisted I try the köfte at köfteci Yusuf's place before we continued on our trip. Went there about 23:30 and it was packed, luckily there was a table available! The food was absolutely amazing! The service was impeccable. I can't wait for my next trip to Iznik so I can have some... More

This place was a whirlwind! My boyfriend and I walked in and were shown to a table that already had bread, salad, dates, Aryan, soda water and juice already on the table. We were asked what we wanted and I walked inside with the waiter to show him pictures as I don't know Turkish and he didn't speak English. Just... More

When in Iznik you must stop and eat at Kofteci Yusuf. The open kitchen grilling meats from their famous Kofteci (meatballs) to lamb chops fills the air. The taste was delicious. All the animals are farm raised and produced by Yusuf. There is a story to the success of the young man who started this restaurant from a very small... More

My husband knows what is real kofte/meat tastes like, and he gives you ten out of ten. While our stay in Iznik we went twice this place and enjoyed meat, salads and sweets. I loved so much their olive oil and village bread. We couldn't resist to buy semifinished kofte, beef and ribs for barbecue.

My son and I were touring through this town (Nicea to us...), and stopped in for some kufte. Really enjoyed it. We sat outside (it was a very warm March day), and it was very pleasant. The waiter didn't speak a word of English, but we managed just fine. It's only about a block down from the church/mosque that is... More

We saw the name on pre-works of our İznik holiday, and we tried them curiously. We ate Köfte and Sucuk. Köfte was very nice, we liked it. Not much onion, with better taste. But Sucuk was average taste. We like spicy one, but this is not like that much.
