Very good food, always hot, you get a basket of bread and dips upon arrival, don't hang back from asking for more, last time we went we had 3/4 baskets between 4 people. The only problem for me was the pudding, very limited choice if you don't like nuts and afterwards you get some Turkish delight which not every one... More

Absolutely love this little restaurant. Amazing fresh food and when you enter you feel as thou you are almost abroad away from the hustle and bustle of the busy town. The only thing I would say is that maybe at the weekends they could have some entertainment to liven things up a little. We went her New Years Eve for... More

I returned here for the 2nd time recently and had another very enjoyable evening. The food, drinks and service were excellent and the restaurant including the toilets were spotlessly clean. I will be going back and would not hesitate in recommending Selale to friends and family. Keep up the good work and thanks for a great evening!

It's a firm favourite of mine. Excellent value for money Good service What more is there to say Great place a real find

Agree with many other reviewers in most respects. Welcome certainly very friendly as was the service right through the meal. Efficient but not hurried. We (4) had a range of dishes from the traditional to the fish. Most dishes come with rice but the fish (Halibut) came with really excellent sauté potatoes. We had one side order of French fries,...

I just had dinner at the Selale and I am impressed. The food was great and the service very friendly. If you ever go to the Selale to have dinner, try the poached pears for dessert. They are delicious. I can only recommend the Selale if you like Turkish and Greek food.

Food was very good, authentic and quickly prepared. Not too expensive, fair for what you got. Staff were attentive and unobtrusive. Warm atmosphere with roomy tables. Wine was reasonable. I would go again, absolutely
