This was one of our favorite restaurants during our two week stay in Cape Town. It's a 30+ year institution set in a beautiful space. The only menu is the drink menu, but the food is brought out to you to choose. The cold appetizers are brought out in a tray and the hot ones are chosen, then taken back... More

My wife and I and another couple had earlier discussed a return to Anatoli, a restaurant we had last visited at least a decade ago. Anatoli has been on the scene for well over 30 years and has, quite obviously, stood the test of time. It was with great expectations that we met last Saturday. I had forgotten quite how... More

Last day in Cape Town we decided to visit Anatoly a restarurant a bit hidden in Napier Street. The host a friendly and well educated arqueologist leded us the way on a turkish dinner simple, well seasoned and delicious. Interesting experience to have within a relaxed place. Hope we come back soon

My Beautiful Wife and I found ourselves back in Capetown for a few days staying in an apartment at the Rockwell and the guest notes suggested that Anatoli Turkish Restaurant across the road in Napier Street could be worth a visit if we were looking for somewhere to have dinner. Well MBW is quite a fan of Turkish food and... More

Our waiter was friendly and efficient. Unfortunately we were let down by the food. It was very generic and tasted like mass produced food. Anatoli is an institution in Cape Town so I was disappointed that it was so average. 🙁

Anatoli has been one of our favourite restaurants for the last 10 years and we have never been disappointed. I guess it is the fact that it is owner driven by Tayfun (who is Turkish himself) He is very passionate about good food and attention to detail. Going to Anatoli's is such an amazing experience. Tayfun manages to get everything... More

Highly recommended. Feels like Istanbul when you step in here. The food is authentic and very tasty. Lovely owner, Taifun. They bring a large tray of mezzes and these were so good that we had to share our mains. The stuffed aubergine is excellent as a main.

I have never eaten Turkish cuisine (at least, not that I am aware of) or at a Turkish Restaurant before – so I had no preconceived ideas or any expectations either. So, as a Turkish food newbie, I was not really sure what to expect, or what the “normal” procedure was. On entering Anatoli’s, we were shown to a table... 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.
