“Great Food & Atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

We always go here for our family special occasions or just a nice nite out. Never been disappointed and always have a lovely time. The staff know us and always make us feel welcome. We've been going here since it was just Cafe 45!! Highly recommend this little treasure!!!

“Ak Deniz - Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Myself & my husband ate here on Saturday evening. The restaurant was full and with a couple of birthday parties in. We were seated straight away, after a few minutes one of the waiters asked if he could take our order, unfortunately we were'nt quite ready as we had never been here before so didnt know the menu. We were told he would come back to us in a few minutes but it was actually quite a while later, I am assuming this was down to the fact that the restuarant was busy.

My husband ordered a starter, when receiving the starter the waiter asked if he would like more bread, my husband said yes, but unfortunately the extra bread never appeared. Our main meals arrived fairly quickly after the starter, not much to comment upon here, only to say that both our meals were 'average', They were hot and cooked well, but not particularly appealing to the eye and just average flavours, nothing to write home about.

We did not order desserts so cannot comment on these.

We were seated 'around the corner' which is the additional area of the restuarant that opened up, housing a further 4 tables. I feel that we were not looked after as attentively as the main part of the restuarant. One of the young waitresses who brought us our bill actually asked us if we felt abandoned sitting in this area, I feel she was pretty accurate to say the least !

All in all a very average meal. The singer was interesting to say the least, whilst the music was good, unfortunately there was a great deal of distortion due to the fact that the microphone was far to close which created the distortion in the music !

We will unfortunately not be rushing back to Ak Deniz.

“Great atmosphere. Great service. Great food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

We were booked for a party of 3 on a Friday evening and this was our first visit to AkDeniz. The restaurant has a lovely welcoming interior, a strong Mediterranean vibe to it, it definitely gave you that "on holiday" feeling especially with the delicious aromas stimulating your appetite.

2 members of our party opted for the set meal (3 courses), which is £20 per person (minimum of 2 people), the other member opted for mussels in a creamy tomato sauce to start and pirzola, which are lamb cutlets, for the main.

The set meal included mezze for starter which came with a multitude of colourful bowls of dips and sauces, and also a selection of chorizo, calamari, haloumi, salad and a chorizo and prawn dish cooked in a chilli sauce. There was plenty to go around and all the dishes gave you an amazing variety of flavour. The mussels were small but tasted wonderful, the sauce they came in was absolutely amazing, a basket of bread is provided to every table and we all really enjoyed sampling the dips and sauces, a perfect Mediterranean starter.

For the mains the set meal provided a fantastic mixed grill as well as other dishes such as paella, moussaka, stifadho (chunks of beef in a sauce)and a chicken dish that we missed the name of but was delicious, in fact it was all delicious. The meat was wonderfully seasoned and cooked perfect, the beef literally melted in our mouths. a 2 person set meal would have fed 3 of us but we also had the lamb cutlets which were as good as any of us had ever tasted. Perfect for ditching the cutlery and picking up by the bone to eat!

Needless to say our bellies were satisfyingly full at this point, however the set meal also comes with baklava and ice cream, which is a sweet pastry for those who have never tried it. This was in line with the rest of the meal, lip smackingly beautiful and could not be wasted, no matter how stuffed we were feeling! We also ordered a liquer coffee which was lovely too.

The service we received throughout the night was top rate, and you would expect a similar level of service to restaurants that are much more expensive. The staff were friendly and courteous and added to the wonderful dining experience.

This restaurant may not appeal to those who like quiet restaurants as the atmosphere is, although relaxed, vibrant and lively. After our main course there was a belly dancer who also got any willing diners up to dance, which for us, added to the holiday feel of the whole experience.

Overall the value for money, especially the set meal, is excellent. Quality food is worth paying for and for £80 for the final bill (including a bottle of wine) we feel we got a bargain for the excellent food.

If you like a fun vibrant atmosphere with your food, and want a real taste of the Med, we highly recommend this restaurant.
