Ridiculously experience

This is an absolutely stunning restaurant, food is great. Perfect for a first date,a romantic meal and dinner with friends. The meze board is fantastic but the small dishes are ridiculously expensive and although delicious not actually worthy of the R50 per small bowl. I have been many times and... read more

My umpteenth visit to anatoli and as always excellent. Decor is excellent and you could be in Istanbul. Service though not the most professional is friendly and good. Starters are mezze style arriving on a huge tray and you choose which you want some are warmed and brought back to the table. All we had (and that was many) were... More

We discovered Anatoli on our last night in Cape Town and wish we had found it earlier. It was amazing - easily the best meal we had in the city. The selection of meze was unbelievable, and every single one was delicious. The baba ganoush and the hot potato meze were amazing. The service was impeccable - the owner was... More

We fancied some different food while in Cape Town and decided to visit this Turkish restaurant, located almost next door from the hotel/apartment where we were staying. The food was excellent. Because we ordered starters, main courses and desserts, the bill ended at around R1,100. For four, this was reasonable, but not really cheap.

I was surprise by this Turkish Restaurant. This restaurant is in South Africa for almost 30 years. The service is very good, the food excellent and the belly dancer very stunning! I shall certainly visit it again

I have been going to this restaurant for over 15 years and I am pleased to say that it still offers a fantastic selection of Turkish mezze. We happened to go on a Monday where you get 1 free mezze for every 4 ordered. Good to see a few new additions since my last visit about a year ago. There... More

Anatoli most definitely offers a very unique and romantic dinning experience. With so many places in Cape Town following the same dinning trends, Anatoli provides a breath of fresh air. Coupled with this, the services is extremely good, and they offer what I consider to be one of the best reasonably priced wine selections in the city.

I was part of a group taken to Anatoli Turkish Restaurant last Friday evening as part of a birthday supper. What an enjoyable evening out. Very interesting starters and what was nice was that every one chose a different starter and we could all taste each others starters we gave us an opportunity to taste a wide variety of dishes....

Very large selection of Meze dishes . What seems at first to be small amounts of food, the meze platters combine to provide an excellent quantity of delicious food.

The venue is superbly finished with stylish Turkish decor. Traditional foods served on traditional large serving boards - impressive to the eye. Good quality Middle Eastern Foods - catering for both the Vegetarian and Meat-eaters. Lamb is soft and succulent. Lovely place for an intimate dinner or for a group of friends.
