Been here dozens of times and will keep going to Zeytins. Excellent Turkish. The service at this place never fails to impress. Always friendly and welcoming. The food is so authentic.

“Will recommend!!”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Tasty food and plenty of it. The service was excellent and we didn't have to preorder at the bar. Lovely ambience. Orded the Mezza platter before the mains, yummy!! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their mains, especially the lamb dishes. Will recommend this cafe for lunch and dinner. Well done Zeytin.

“Substantial meals, fresh and prompt, value”
Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

Great reliable casual dining, suitable for families. Probably pays to book for dinner unless you arrive early in the evening. I was pleased to see a variety of GF and healthy options, including loads of salads. Excellent wood fired pizzas. Friendly owners run a tight ship, with quick turnover of tables but manage to retain a relaxed feel at lunchtime. The Iskender is exceptional value if you require a large meal with is relatively healthy, though I found the beef a bit much and would rather have had about half the amount, at a better quality than what was served. Good children's menu on request with freshly prepared choices. Daughter enjoyed her sensible child sized pizza. The best curly fries if you are not worried about your waistline! One small feedback to owners: it's hard to read blue print on a black background on the menu. Would return.
