Plain, cozy, crowded place (very nice/comfortable on a cold day) with very friendly manager. typical Turkish dishes that are well prepared. We really like the roasted vegetable appetizer plate (Karısık Kızartması) with zucchini, eggplant and carrots plus a yogurt based dip, as I recall last time. with some pita. Then I had a Sac, which is sort of a sauteed... More

Family went to Defne for dinner. We got a nice large table in the back. Our server spoke very good English and helped us interpret the menu since they do not have an English version. We know some of the Turkish foods, so we made it work and we were very happy with our selections. They have a prety broad... More

We were wandering in Konstanz and felt somewhat peckish. So we popped in for a snack, but had no reservation. The restaurant was full but they managed to seat us. The kitchen was fast, and the food quality was really good. And the bill: a pizza, a macaroni dish, two large beers and two ouzos: 20 euros!

The restaurant has a slightly canteen feel so not for fine dining but was comfy and there is a view of the kitchen. Staff are friendly and efficient. The portions are really large so don't over order as we did. The various starters were OK but we have had better. The mixed grill Defne was excellent but huge. The salad... More

Went there because of what people where writing in here and I am not disappointed at all. Good and big plates, I totally recommend if you like Greek food. Family Atmosphere also while it is a small restaurant. Friendly and good service... Only minus is that they only have either porc or lamb meat...

I dropped into Restaurant Delfe for lunch. They offer a large selection of lunch special priced at €5.90 (not starting at €5.90), from pizza, pasta to various noodle dishes and Borek. I opted for the Firinda Makarna off the regular menu, which is a noodle dish with beef, spinach, cheese, onions and cream smothered with cheese and sprinkled with cilantro... More

Best to book a table as we saw plenty of people arriving and not getting in. Restaurant was packed on the two evenings we ate there. Food was super Turkish cuisine, really enjoyed Turkish Wok. Very reasonable. No English menu although waiting staff did their best to translate. A slight delay in getting the food although well worth the wait!

Defne is a fabulous little restaurant serving Turkish food. We have eaten here many times and it is always on our "to do" list when visiting Konstanz (Constance), Germany. It really does not matter what you choose from the menu, it is always good. Our favorites include the Sac (Turkish Wok!) and the Döner Borek (special Turkish prepared meat filled... More
