The Iskele

Restaurants, Turkish Barbican

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

A spacious 'Meditteranean' restaurant with standard Turkish dishes.

Whitecross Street has become a destination for street food on Thurday and Friday lunchtimes,with stalls selling hog roast sandwiches, burritos, falafel wraps, jerk chicken and more besides. But in wintry weather, the indoor seating of the market street’s cafés beckon. The Iskele is one of them, a ‘Mediterranean’ restaurant on a spacious site with coloured glass pendant lanterns and other knick-knacks that give it an Anatolian feel.

The menu is mostly Turkish, as this is what they do best, and meze can be ordered individually or as sharing platters. The wine list is short but of unusually high quality for a place of this kind. 

The Iskele says
The Iskelé has been keeping EC1 locals happy with fresh, reliable Mediterranean fare since 2000. From their spot on Whitecross Street, we've welcomed residents, the Old Street tech newcomers and the City workers alike.
