Without a booking we arrived to a very laid back and warm welcome and shown around the restaurant, finally settled on the mosaic table immediately on the right as you enter. We were looked after by Patience who was very attentive and brought an enormous Mezze tray to our table. We chose a few dishes that from the freshly prepared section. The cold dishes were left at our table and the hot dishes delivered soon after. Mains followed and the fish dish was amazing. The chef Jacques and the manager Washington came by to check on us, which was very welcome. All the staff are very friendly and the service was excellent.

Anatoli's is has been one of my favourite restaurants in Cape Town for years, has the best prepared and best selection of meze in town, to suit anyones palette or dietary preference. My advice go hungry, ignore the main courses and just feast on meze and delicious breads. We were a party of 8, ordered 3 meze each, which we all shared, still had food left over. Only 4 managed desserts, which were also delicious. A superb evening for anyone from a couple wanting a romantic evening to a group celebrating a birthday. Also has a superb wine list. Give Anatoli a try, you won't be disappointed. I only have one small crtique, the belly dancer is not that great, but just turn your back and enjoy the food.

Second visit. Went in July, loved it and returned now with family who enjoyed it as much as I did. My brother has been decades ago and was incredibly impressed. Decor is unpretentious but very charming, warm and atmospheric. We all had the set menus - regular and vegetarian. Each course was beautifully presented and tasty. Service was excellent, lovely to watch the kitchen staff swaying to the music and the food delicious. Set menu was very reasonably priced. As good a visit as the first time. The belly dancer who performed on Christmas Eve added a little bit of magic to the evening.

Warm and friendly welcome. We were lucky to get a table on new year’s day. A good choice on the menu, but it’s not very detailed - it’s unclear what comes with the dishes. Whilst the staff were friendly the service was slow, it was a busy night by the end with all the tables full. When our food did arrive it was fairly tasty and looked good. I would say you’d need to order the meze platter with any main for any sauce accompaniment. The bill had a tip included already, there’s an automatic 10% charge after 200 Rand!!! It was one of our more expensive meals in CT but did not make it onto Instagram.

Anatoli was one of my favourite restaurants in Cape Town but has a new owner and new menu now. We had the meze for starters and decided not to have mains as the food is not half as good as it used to be. The service and ambiance is not the same. I miss Tayfun and the old Anatoli will no return.

So disappointing. Lacked service, taste and just about everything. 5 course set meal started with a good soup and was downhill from there. The final main a very chewy small rib. Not worth the wait. Yes waiting between dishes makes you run out of wine too.

The last time I visited Anatolis was 25 years ago! I thought it was a fantastic restaurant with a lovely atmosphere, friendly staff & great food. I wondered if it would live up to my expectations. Well it superceeded them. I had intended booking a different restaurant but they were in the process of relocating so Anatolis was actually my “fall back guy” Boy did they deliver, the food was superb. Simon, our waiter was brilliant - knowledgeable, a good sense of humour, attentive but not hovering. I love the decor. 25yrs later & it’s a fresh, chilled Middle Eastern vibe thats modern & authentic. The food was absolutely superb. We were a party of 4 derided to order the mezes. 9 dishes plus 2 breads. Oh my hat, every single dish was divine. We were like stuffed lil porkies but did we Sat not to dessert. I had the chocolate fondant which was so huge a shared with hubbie. I thought it I had died & gone to heaven. So glad we had the unexpected pleasure of enjoying dinner at the “fall guy” Had such a fab evening with our friends, we will definitely be back. High recommended

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! This little gem is easily missed as it is not well marked. But what a find. We took the advice of a Trip Advisor review and only ate a selection of the Mezze. And to my amazement 6 was too much for the two of us. Such a great nature to choose from. And really nice wine list. Such great service too. Sunny excellent.

Fabulous start to the evening of celebrating my best friends birthday with Superb Mezze Starters and great service from the ladies but sadly there after the food declined We ordered 2 Gnocchi, 1 line fish and 3 Rib eye steaks - the pasta & fish was fine but sadly the rib eye steaks with garnish of broccoli, onion rings and mushrooms jus were cold in texture and the steaks were awful in cold and the dishes were just not plated right - Warm Jus , Cold Rib eye… yuk We spoke to staff who were lovely who said they would change the dishes - sadly all they did was reheat the plates and the steaks came back awful and over cooked plus when my friend approach the Chef in the kitchen he was dismissive & said that’s what you fu%£ing asked for and was downright rude Thereafter we sent the 2 steaks back and decided to take our birthday party elsewhere in Cape Town , not ordering more wine , drinks or desserts The whole night was spoilt by a Chef that had serious delusions of grandeur and could not seriously cook a frozen lollipop 10/10 for the staff for allowing us to speak to the owner as he was empathetic and should compassion unlike the Chef Sadly a spoilt evening by one person 😒

I have never had Turkish food before so I cannot compare it to another Turkish place. However the food tasted great and the overall experience was very nice
