One of the best atmospheres I found in Istanbul during my stay. They speak good English. Good food and wine. Nice outdoor seating area with street view. Best during evening. Calm and chill music

Kirpi Cafe - Kosuyolu - is one of the best brasseries in Istanbul with its selection of food and beverages and its comfortable atmosphere. I have had the possibility to monitor its evolution from a small cafe with garden to a full-fledged brasserie providing international cuisine well before it has opened branches elsewhere through the years. It is a progressive... More

Chic modern interior design that heightens Turkish-European culinary fusion. Grilled salmon was succulent. Aromatic fruit juices refreshing to palate. Moist chocolate mousse cake with dollop of vanilla ice cream and mint sprig garnish sizzling hot out of the oven must-have. Attentive service. Definitely worth visiting.

Noticed this place off the main road which was perfect as we wanted somewhere tucked away from the madness of Bagdat Cad. The place looks great - really stylish and quirky. Great selection on the menu, we struggled to choose! Went for a cheese toast, chicken and mushroom fettuccine and the mini burger meal for my son. Everything was spot-on.... More

Whenever we'd like to meet and eat beautiful staff at Bagdat Cad. , we never think of another place. It's Kirpi.With variaty of wine and food selections and warm, cosy atmosphere, i like this place so much. Deserts also good. They used to make a suffle with white chocolate&almond, which was dreamy. Hope they'll put it back on the menu... More

Since this place is close to where I live, it's been a meeting point for me and my friends. I really like to have lunch here and I highly recommend that you save some for the delicious chocolat soufle. If you are planning to come here for lunch on Sundays, get ready to be disappointed because they start serving lunch... More

There is not much different about the food. Nice steak and chicken, nice salads, sandwiches. All served well and delicious but I can not say anything truly extraordinary about them. Quality is well though. The prices are alittle higher than they should be considered the alternatives around. I liked the lemonade and çökertme the most
