Description: At Ephesus Restaurant, we promise you a meal to delight all of your culinary senses and bring you to the very heart of Turkish & Greek cuisine. Turkish & Greek cuisine is largely the heritage of Ottoman cuisine, which can be described as a fusion and refinement of Central Asian, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and Balkan cuisines.Turkish & Greek cuisine has in turn influenced those and other neighbouring cuisines, including those of Western Europe. The Ottomans fused various culinary traditions of their realm with influences from Middle Eastern cuisines, along with traditional Turkic elements from Central Asia (such as yogurt), creating a vast array of specialities-many with strong regional associations. It is this same fusing of traditional influences with our own regional expertise in delicacy that enables us to create a one of a kind eating extravaganza.

“Authentic and very tasty - highly recommended!”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

We were looking for somewhere different in Torquay and came across Ephesus. The food was so tasty, the staff were very helpful and also very knowledgeable with regard the different menu options. The atmosphere was great and the food came out quickly. I have since recommended the restaurant to friends and family and will be going again!

“Very tasty food, would highly recommend!! Thank you :)”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

We were welcomed in to the restaurant and sat very quickly and drinks orders taken very soon after. The restaurant is modern and clean, with a good table layout.

We had a hot mezze platter, dips and chicken Souvlaki. All of the food was perfectly cooked, tasty, hot and nicely presented. I eat a lot of greek/turkish food and I would say that this was really really good. They lean more towards Turkish than Greek, but very deliciously so!

Would highly recommend - we were there on a Thursday - not sure if you would have to book on a Saturday?
