I visited the Stone Cave a number of times and most recently yesterday. Always friendly service and great food. I can highly recommend the menemen (with Turkish sausage) and the ‘healthy lunch’. Lovely food and a great place to either meet friends or just read...More

We often eat in the Stone Cave if we are going to a performance at the Arcola. Sit down by 6 and you can be finished just after 7. Arcola is 5 minutes away. Try the Meze, ridiculously cheap and delicious. Yummy

Having eaten menemen at several establishments in London I can confidently say this is the freshest and most deliciously spiced breakfast accompanied by beautiful warm bread and draft beer from when doors open. Excellent service and a great atmosphere. Thank you!

Brilliant place for breakfast, lunch, meal or just a coffee. Best mediterranean food ever. The food on the plate just looks so appetising. Taste? It is the best by far. Service very efficient and friendly. This restaurant is a gem in Dalston Kingsland.

We popped in for a fairly quick early evening meal before going out in Dalston. We had the mixed mezze for 2 - all the favourites, the borek and the tabbouleh were particularly good. As usual, that would actually be enough to fill me up...More

This restaurant in Dalston, Hackney has been in operation since 2002. It has continuously offered a wide range of authentic Turkish food, inspired by Ottoman recipes. The dishes are prepared with a well defined range of cooking methods and the aromas coming from the charcoal grill are mouth-watering. The Stone Cave offers breakfasts, lunches and evening meals, fresh juices, Turkish tea, organic tea, coffee, cocktails and alcohol. The location is ideal, easily accessible with Dalston Junction and Dalston Kingsland close by. The ambience of this establishment is enhanced by Turkish lanterns and unusual stone-like walls which provide a Cappadocian atmosphere. Belly dancing and Turkish music is a feature which in combination with the above, make this arguably one of the finest Turkish restaurants in East London. This is somewhere to come as a couple or as a party where you can be guaranteed a fun time and not be rushed!
