Food is very nice. Service suxs & the coffee well lets say they can not make it because of this I would not eat here or recommend to family or friends. Not only when asked for money back from the 2nd made coffee the person behind the counter argued with us. What happened to customers satisfaction. Bad service Cafe Zeytin.

good spot but seems very popular at weekends so get in early. Value for money with more of a café atmosphere. Enjoyed the decorations

Took out 13yr granddaughter with us, she had 3 courses, we managed two! Well presented food and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Nice atmosphere.

Great place to go pre cinema or theatre as they know the meaning of quick efficient service. Tasty Turkish food and a great atmosphere. Bookable separate alcoves which are great fun.

We were in Tauranga for the night and found this restaurant with an interesting Turkish menu. We were seated and then completely ignored. After about 15 minutes, without even being offered a drink we asked a waitress passing by if we could order. She grunted and moved on. We waited a while longer while she came backwards and forwards cleaning... More
