Description: Experience the best cuisine that Turkey has to offer at Anatoli. Be greeted warmly by attentive staff and seated in an intriguing Victorian warehouse, built in 1904. Anatoli has been serving the best Turkish food in Cape Town since 1984 and this wealth of experience and success is well reflected in the offerings on the extensive and well-planned menu. Freshly baked flat breads accompany traditional meze, presented in equally traditional oversized trays. The knowledgeable waiters will enthusiastically take diners through all of the meze available. There is something to suit every palate at Anatoli due to the variety that characterises Turkish cuisine. Experience a memorable culinary journey through Turkey care of Anatoli at Green Point.

whether its the main courses or the mezze platter, or if one is really lucky to be hungry enough for both.... there is always an abundance of wholesome goodness and middle eastern taste sensation in the food here! add to that the high cielings, spacious rooms and engaging decor, excellent service from all, and you have a winning combination for a great evening out. the serving of the hot bread with the mezze's is pure theatre at its best too!

I have been introduced to Anatoli many years ago and have been back a number of times when visiting Cape Town over the years; however not for the past five. So it was with a little trepidation that I suggested to a group of colleagues with me at a conference that we go there for dinner. Working for a global mining company means that we travel a lot and get to experience dining at its very best (and worst). We are not easily impressed.

Anatoli ticked all the boxes. Our orders covered almost the whole (huge) tray of meze, as well as most of the mains on offer – and every single dish was delicious. The service was attentive and the setting superb. The restaurant has aged gracefully over the years with time adding a welcoming, lived-in patina to it all. Being a chilly winter’s evening, the air-conditioning was set just right, adding sufficient warmth without leaving one feeling stuffy.

The portions were generous, and following on that excellent selection of meze, some mains were not polished off completely. However, this was not for a lack of trying by the guests.

Anatoli must be doing something right to be still relevant after more than two decades in the business. In Cape Town there is no better place to be on a chilly winter’s night.
