It has 2 review sites, one call Sembol Meathouse and the this one - Meathouse. They are the same place which also causes some confusion. Its located near the Blue Mosque apartments around the corner... More

We were tired of all the restaurants on the main streets trying to force you to eat at their establishment. I found this place using tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. The food was very good and the service perfect. They were eager to please. If you are in the area, this is a lovely departure from the main area.... More

We went to Meat House on the recommendation of our guesthouse owner, and were not disappointed! We loved the "puff bread" and mixed meat kebab. The wine was great, and the owner lovely and friendly. The complimentary chocolates and hot drinks we were given at the end of meal were a welcome treat. The couple at the table next to... More

This little cafe in the old town area is fantastic! The owner is charming and authentic. The food is great. You can sit there for hours and have coffee a just watch the crowds go by. Thank you for a wonderful time.

The owner takes pride in his food and customer service. Nice indoor/outdoor on a street hidden between carpet shops and the Blue Mosque. Perfect for lunch.

Meat house is amazing. Go here have a kebab and it will change your life. So tasty. Bread is delicious too. Bread comes as a big hot puff. Great food, super friendly owner. Check it out. Prices are fair as well.
