The Old House restaurant is a friendly, comfortable place to enjoy traditional Turkish cuisine. The eggplant dishes are especially good, as is the curried chicken. The specialty of the house is a slow cooked leg of lamb casserole, which takes three hours to cook and requires notification the day before. This restaurant is worth your time.

Dined here tonight (23rd October). Family of three with 2 friends. We were only in Selcuk for one night and wanted something traditional. The family welcome was warm and friendly and they were pleased to tell us about the dishes which are great value for money. The food was exceptional. All 5 of us (with varying tastes) enjoyed everything. The... More

We were made to feel at home. The spicy meat kabob was excellent as were the stuffed peppers. The setting in the garden is so comfortable.

We had a great time at the Old House Restaurant. We got there looking for the best place to spend our last dinner in Turkey with local food and wine and we found it. We had a bottle of Buzbag and some mezes and lamb shish kebap. Everything was delicious but what we enjoyed the most was the great service... More

We had dinner at Old House Restaurant during our last night in Turkey. We sat outdoors in a nice little patio. Our server, Sezai, was outstanding! He was very helpful, professional, and friendly. We ordered the meze and curry chicken. Our dinner was just what we were looking for, delicious traditional food! We will definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone... More

A must visit when visiting Ephesus! "Sezai" was our server and took wonderful care for our big group of 6 adults and 6 children. The Mezes were wonderful, many of us were vegetarian and were completely stuffed with the wonderful food!

We stumbled upon this courtyard restaurant off a the main tourist drag that was cute, quaint & good . . . Plus no harassing to come to their restaurant! Everything was great . . . The meza was divine along with my shrimp dish & even a few cats came around, which being an animal people we enjoyed too!

Lost and not sure which place to head into, kids are pulling at the edges of sanity after a hard day of planes, buses and 2500 year old ruins. The vine wrapped dolmati or Sama, the kebab or "yeeros" , super cold beers, and good selection of Turkish wines, in a beautiful courtyard draped with ivy clad walls, pomegranate, grapefruit,...
