At lunchtime, Köşem BBQ Restaurant offers a wide range of lighter meals and snacks including omelettes, burgers, pizza and pide as well as a selection of sandwiches. A special favourite are the local pancakes (gözleme) with a range of savoury fillings such as cheese and meat.

The dinner menu at Köşem is varied and extensive. To start, there is a great choice of typically-Turkish mezzes to tempt you - both hot and cold - such as aubergine salad, haydari (a thick and tangy Turkish yoghurt dip), stuffed calamari and cheese rolls. Main course choices are both Turkish and 'international' in style and include Adana kebab, lamb casserole and swordfish fillet.
