About
At Ephesus Restaurant, we promise you a meal to delight all of your culinary senses and bring you to the very heart of Turkish & Greek cuisine. Turkish & Greek cuisine is largely the heritage of Ottoman cuisine, which can be described as a fusion and refinement of Central Asian, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and Balkan cuisines.Turkish & Greek cuisine has in turn influenced those and other neighbouring cuisines, including those of Western Europe. The Ottomans fused various culinary traditions of their realm with influences from Middle Eastern cuisines, along with traditional Turkic elements from Central Asia (such as yogurt), creating a vast array of specialities-many with strong regional associations.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The last time I went to Ephesus was a few years back before they moved closer to the strand and was so excited to be going back as we previously had a fantastic experience. This time it felt like corners had been cut and I...certainly would not hurry back. Went as a party of 4. When we arrived our table was not ready and we were seated 30 minutes after our booking time. No apology or offer of a complimentary drink. There is also no bar area so we were left standing around. Food was mediocre and almost seemed like they had 'run out' as an example we had sharing platters for our starters and had 1 tiny meatball and 1 dolmades (supposedly to share) but a large amount of dip- for £17.95- need I say any more. This was followed by a moussaka with no aubergine and was more cheese than anything else. On a positive note staff were very friendly and bubbly but the food was really lacking.More

My partner and I chose Ephesus for our Valentine's meal as it's our favourite restaurant! We have been once before in it's current location for partner's birthday in December and our first meal together at Ephesus was in it's prior location. The food is outstanding,...every time. The staff remember us, make us feel so welcome and are incredibly attentive (in the best way). It's also very aesthetically pleasing, beautiful light fittings!More

Hadn't booked but were made very welcome. All the staff are very friendly and helpful Service was very quick Food was amazing, we had 3 courses and they were all delicious It was my partner's birthday and the waiting staff sang happy birthday to him,...he was a little embarrassed but did enjoy it 🙂 Would recommend this restaurant whole heartedly Maybe unlikely that we return as we are in the area on holiday, but if we lived locally it would definitely be a favourite for us!More

First visit to the new premises, very impressed. The new building is well spaced out and elegant in design. Food and service better than ever, the excellent bottle of Yakut was a added bonus. In fact it was so good we had two! Everything was...laid back and easy going, table ours for the evening so no rush. I wish Ephesus every success in its new venture, its obviously been a huge and much needed investment in the town of TorquayMore
