Eat here quite regularly and they never fail to impress. The food and the service are always first class. The mixed grill is the best option if you can't decide what to have. The staff are friendly and will do anything to accommodate you. Booking is advised as just turning up and getting a seat is highly unlikely. Also offer... More

We went to this restaurant for the first time at the weekend and it certainly exceeded our expectations. As you enter there is an impressive open charcoal grill and the scents of mediterranean barbecues waft around the restaurant but not intrusively so.The set lunch for £11 was a delight. There was a good choice of starters and the mains included... More

As Liverpool lacks in good quality Mediterranean/middle eastern I decided to visit as it is my favourite cuisine. coming from a middle eastern background and being a food lover and cook i was very impressed with the authentic flavours. food was serviced at good timing and waiter and manager very friendly, nice portion size and menu has the right amount...

The food here is so good, I just keep going back! Its all fresh and delicious, cooked in front of everyone....just the best kebabs I've ever had. The lamb with aubergine is amazing too! Definitely worth a trip, you wont be disappointed.

A group of nine of us went for a birthday meal and it was great. The food was very tasty and of decent portion size. The starters were tasty, especially those pastry tubes with cheese in (my girlfriend had them and I had starter envy!). The mains were good and flavoursome - meat, rice, salad, bread - exactly what you... More

I'm a huge fan of kebabs and BBQ, however, from my experience, most Turkish restaurants serve bland, unappetising food. When we arrived at the restaurant, the food was another story: the meat was perfectly seasoned and the lamb was easily the most succulent lamb I have ever tasted. Even the salad was delicious and perfectly dressed! The dessert was also... More

I have been to Elif both in this location and at Childwall several times, it is a great restaurant. excellent menu, great quality food, superb meze, charcoal grill, friendly service, great prices, always extremely busy. For the extra touch, try the Turkish wines - they are available but not on the list. definitely highly recommended.

Popped into elif for an early evening meal - we only got a main meal each of kebab. however these were delicious! Loved that the food was cooked fresh and authentically - very tastey. Definitely will be going back at some point to try more dishes.
