Delicious Food

Delicious food, very friendly staff, quick service even though the restaurant was busy, and the restaurant was really nice and cosy thanks to a big cooking fire in the middle of the restaurant. I would recommend booking in advance, as it was very busy.

A group of four of us went for a mid afternoon meal on 14/2. The menu is enough to be interesting, the food was excellent and the service friendly and personable. One of our party is a particularly picky eater but she enjoyed all her food. We would all be very happy to visit again if we are in the... More

We turned up without a booking on a busy Saturday night and were lucky to get a table. All the staff were friendly, made us feel welcome and the timing for ordering and bringing out the food was near perfect. The starters were a little disappointing with the special meze being little more than a plate of cold dips and... More

Not having eaten here for many years it was a delight to discover... More

Efes used to be a very good Turkish restaurant. I used to take my VIP guests to Efes. The quality of service deteriorated in the last few years and I stopped going to this restaurant. I had a stop there early on a Friday evening last week. They still have the same menu but it just appeared to me pretty... More

Food always excellent. We go there most weeks for a business meeting. Because of the soft furnishings, it is quiet so I can hear my colleagues clearly.
