“Authentic cuisine”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Enjoyed a great meal cooked by Mehmet and his wife Rahine, all local fresh meats and vegetables, a real taste of Turkey, Very friendly and welcoming people. The inside of the restaurant is very compact but this added to the occasion, and the aroma of the meats cooking was wonderful, but there is loads of alfresco space for when the weather is kinder.

We ate inside as the weather was atrocious, January being the rainy season!! and a really nice touch when we were ready to leave, Mehmet called his son who drove round in the pouring rain to give us a complimentary journey back to our hotel. I had the mixed kebab, with roasted vegetables - chicken on a shish, and succulent local lamb and beef cutlets. It was delicious. If you are visiting Ephesus then a meal at Selcuk is a must. We would really recommend this restaurant - it doesn't come any more authentic, and great value.

“Great grub, great people!”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Mehmet Bey and Rahime Hanim were simply lovely people! Welcoming and friendly on a cold, windy, rainy evening. We were the first to arrive that evening for dinner. Mehmet cooked up delicious mixed Kebab of chicken shish, lamb and kofte and his wife Rahime filled the table with plates of delicious Turkish salad, dolma and local wild mushrooms cooked in oil and onions - absolutely scrumptious!! All washed down with some Efes Pilsen! By the time we finished eating, the weather had got worse so Mehmet called his son to give us a lift back to our hotel. Such warm, helpful people and delicious hearty food!

“the best delicious turkey trip”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

We found this restaurant in the second day of we got selcuk, an old couple run this restaurant, we eat grill fish and meat, the fish is best we ever have, we really like it. When we left, he told us tomorrow will have the best fish, the real fish. And the next day, we aleady have dinner, but we still miss the fish, it's so beautiful and so delicious, so we come again. To our surprised, we got the turely big fish, it's so big and fresh haha. Its the best and delicious we have in turkey. I'd highly recommend it, You never ever miss it!

“Don't miss having a meal here”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

We had a wonderful meal here. The family - mum, dad and son - who ran the restaurant went out of their way to make sure we were happy, and served delicious food. There were six of us there for dinner and every meal was great. I had the vegetarian plate and it was honestly the best meal I've had in Turkey. I'd highly recommend it.
