We had dinner at Anatoli on our current visit to Cape Town. What a pleasure to dine a high-ceiling almost grand room with hanging textiles and excellent acoustics. We'd not dined here for two years and were delighted that all was still excellent. Our dinner consisted of 6 or 7 selections from the mezza board and a bottle of Cape... More

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the extraodinary food Anatoli prepared for my birthday celebration last night. The food worked a magic over my guests and people relaxed in a deep way, enjoying each morsel, being surprised by new flavours, intrigued by tastes and feeling the love and care that goes into great food. It was exceptional and an... More

you are transported into a different world in this beautiful space! Anatoli never disappoints! i have been visiting it since the early 90's and despite having changed hands a few times the food remains consistently good, the decor is even more beautiful since it's last refurbishment, where they have changed the lighting mood which enhances this space even more..

My 3rd time here and I loved it again. We found it last year while staying nearby and this time I took my mum back, she loved it too. Being vegetarian we can choose from about 90% of the delicious mezzes so that's what we had, just a selection of these. The staff are helpful and friendly and the atmosphere... More

It's definitely different! This Turkish inspired restaurant has lots to offer. Starters are brought to the table on a large mezze tray and main courses are ordered from the counter and brought beautifully prepared to you table. Its very Turkish and the wines are inexpensive and the venue is worth a visit. it's been around for ages and reservations are... More

I was around and got in without booking at 7:30pm. It was fully booked but they allowed me to order on the bar. Went straight to see the main course options; they all looked really great, but the slow cooked lamb shank caught my eye. It was perfectly cooked, tender and tasty. Then I order the coffee cream caramel. Also... More

The reception and ambiance was warm and has an exotic feel to it. The food, oh man, the food! my wife and I had the assortment of mezzes and we could not get to the mains, these were simply delicious. Then we skipped straight to the Turkish rice pudding - very niiice! Ali, his uncle the chef and the team... More

Anatoli’s is a lovely little Turkish restaurant with fantastic ambience and service to match. We spent a lovely Valentine's evening there and the food was superb. The restaurant is in the heart of the LGBT area in Cape Town, which made us feel right at home, so the fact that we were the only gay couple on the night made... More

I hadn't been to Anatoli for many years so I was wondering what it would be like when friends suggested that we go there with them for dinner this week. Everything was PERFECT - from the excellent friendly service, to the delicious food, to the perfect lighting levels. The decor is also amazing. The attention detail can be seen in... More

We loved the decor and warm welcome by the owner. They serve you drinks and you order your bread and they ensure it comes fresh from the oven with your selection of 22 mezzes. The waiter brings a huge tray of fezzes and explains each to you. Some you get straight off the plate, some they heat up and bring... More

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.
