Manager of the restaurant complained that we ordered too many different things. I took number 62, spicy meat in pastry. While there was nothing spicy about the meat the worst thing was that there was no pastry in the dish. They just replaced the pastry...More

We had lunch at this restaurant at a very calm time. The owner Erdo greeted us and gave us full details about the way he would prepare our chosen meals and why he prefers it this way. The menu is extensive and therefore difficult to...More

Turquoise is one of our go-to restaurants as a family. The setting is quiet, cozy and friendly. The host clearly enjoys talking with the diners, and will gladly give more details about the dishes that are served. These are scrumptous! Quality ingredients, lots of flavour,...More

The waiter is bizarre. He made a comment on my accent. We couldn't order 3x the same dish. He didn't have enough ingredients. I ordered what he recommended. Then we waited for about 1 hour. Dish was small. Veggies scarce. My wife's meal was cold,...More

Yesterday we had dinner at this restaurant. It is an odd place, since the cook runs a one-man-busines. This makes service rather slow. He is a good cook though, presenting us tasteful, colorful and healthy food. Loved the home made bread and the sigara boregi....More

It's a well known fact that people who live in the Mediterranean countries live longer. It's due to their healthy life-style and their wholesome and fresh food. Add to that an ounce of passion and you've got the ingredients for Turquoise, Erdo's restaurant.
