This restaurant is a lot of fun. We were there with a group of 8. Mezze are brought on a huge platter for the table to choose. The quality of the food was very good. Delicate flavors, interesting combinations well beyond the usual hummus and dolmades. Main courses are chosen by going up to a steam table. While the quality... More

Notice the restaurant as it was very close to our hotel. Lovely interior and busy for a midweek night. Gorgeous presentation of 22 dishes which you could choose any of them. Delicious food and very reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

A great variety of mouth watering dishes can be enjoyed. The food was well presented and the restaurant has a significant ambiance underpinned with excellent service and attentive staff. I will highly recommend Anatoli, if you would like to try a taste of Turkey!

The restaurant serves food from a Bain Marie were it sits for goodness knows how many hours before clients make a choice. By the time it gets on to your plate it is overcooked and lukewarm. The prices are above average and the wine selection not only poor but heavily overpriced. Nobody even enquires whether you are satisfied and the... More

then I will highly recommend Anatoli. Well even if you are not sure, give it a try. Exquisite decor (if you totally love the Turkish decor and colors), wonderful staff and value for money. We were in Cape Town for business and couldn't help going there twice. Sure if we had a few more days we would've been there every... More
