This cafe would be the nicest place we have visited for a long time. The service was outstanding and the food was the best I have tasted. The staff were all very friendly and the wait time for the meal was very short. We will definitely be back well done.

Went out for a light meal, ordered kebabs, they are great but honestly, normal people could possibly share, they are huge. Service was brisk, good natured and efficient.

We love the food in this casual, vibrant, upbeat restaurant. It is family owned and run and features Turkish dishes, though the menu gives a nod to several different types of cuisine that fall under the category of 'Mediterranean', from traditional Turkish dishes that include spiced lamb, chicken, hummus, baba ganoush, et al. to Italy's pizzas and cannelloni, and so on. The food is fresh and delicious. Portions are substantial, so don't be afraid to share a dish to try multiple choices; you won't be disappointed.

Decor is colorful, with richly textured throw pillows strewn about banquette seats. The wine list is limited but sufficient. The service is brisk and leans closer to cafe than fine dining, though menu prices are such that lunch or dinner is consistently a light, fun, value worth trying or repeating.

Enjoyed an evening at Zetyin during the week. Very friendly waitress and lovely pizzas. All meals appear quite large and good value for money. Did not have to wait too long for our meals and the atmosphere was pleasant and relaxing. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Thanks for an enjoyable evening although we did feel that we had outstayed our welcome even though it was only 9.00 p.m. when we left. After a long weekend on the beach we were ready to relax for a while longer. Although the dessert menu was limited (only 3 options) our choices were delicious.
