The second time we have eaten at Ephesus and the second time I have been disappointed.

The food is very expensive for the quality and the quantity. During our recent visit the portions were verging on ridiculous, 2 slices of sausage (1cm x 3cm) 4 slices of haloumi (1cm x 2cm) 2 pastry rolls and some off salad leaves between 2 people! I suspect during our visit that the food was being spread out to accommodate the busy restaurant.
Th actual quality of the food is okay; although not at the level of the food prices.
We spent £175 for a table of 5 people and came away feeling terribly underwhelmed and ashamed to have wasted so much money on so little food for our family.

The staff were clearly very busy during our visit and it showed in attentiveness. We asked for some bread (included within the meal apparently) twice which never arrived. We had to ask for our table to be cleared, ask for our dessert order to be taken, ask for additional drinks, ask for the bill and then had no 'thank you' for visiting, 'see you next time.'

For the level of food, the standard of the waiting staff vs the cost. I cannot recommend that anyone visit.

I went here with a friend for the first time for lunch and will definitely return.
The waiter was excellent and so was the food
We choose from the fixed menu 2 courses for 8.95.
What a bargain there was a great choice and the food was well presented.
Everything was well cooked and nice warm bread as well
Washed done with 2 glasses if the house red!
What more can you ask for

We went on a Saturday evening. There was live music which was very good at the end of the evening there was a belly dancer, if you like that type of thing, not my cup of tea. Staff were very friendly, food was very good although my fish dish was slightly overcooked. Nothing was too much trouble. We sat near the window because we didn't want to have to shout over the music, if its cold outside don't sit near the windows they tend to be very drafty. Would I go again YES.
