Experience the best cuisine that Turkey has to offer at Anatoli. Be greeted warmly by attentive staff and seated in an intriguing Victorian warehouse, built in 1904. Anatoli has been serving the best Turkish food in Cape Town since 1984 and this wealth of experience and success is well reflected in the offerings on the extensive and well-planned menu. Freshly baked flat breads accompany traditional meze, presented in equally traditional oversized trays. The knowledgeable waiters will enthusiastically take diners through all of the meze available. There is something to suit every palate at Anatoli due to the variety that characterises Turkish cuisine. Experience a memorable culinary journey through Turkey care of Anatoli at Green Point.

Excellent.

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

Had a very nice dinner here in a recent trip. They bring a selection of mezzo to the table to start - cold dishes you get direct from the tray - hot ones come within minutes. Small selection of main courses you are taken to peruse - bit odd that part - but all the food was delicious in spite... More

The place was quiet during the week. The food was great. We had lots of mezze platters which were fresh and light. Would go there again to try the meatier dishes too.

Maybe my expectations were more than I received since I have just returned from a visit to the Middle East and compared to my expectations was disappointed. My main dish was overcooked and the managers response was "well you ate it ???" don't think I'll be back soon.

Somehow Anatoli manages to remain an intimate & stunning experience, despite many years of fame. Only warning is that it is VERY easy to overindulge with the meze platter, leaving no space for mains! As access to Napier St from Somerset Rd is permanently closed, you reach Anatoli, using Alfred St. You can park in the Rockwell Hotel's parking garage... More
