We had two mixed kebab platters, a vegetarian sampler, Turkish coffee and calamari, with pita bread. We were very pleased! Reasonable prices for huge servings! Great service as well!!

If you are looking to have good food off the waterfront Efendy is a great option. The food is fresh and delicious. The grilled meat was tasty and the traditional mediterranean items like hummus was made fresh and on point.

Simple yet delicious Turkish food, served promptly on a busy evening. Waiters were good, patio was very comfortable in the evening air. Experienced with Turkish food, we recommend Efendy to all.

I was really surprised by the food and the quality. The chef makes everything fresh and on the spot. The baklava is to die for. You will not be disappointed.

Good stop. We didn't go in and sat on the deck. Had the chicken kebab. Good rice and pittas, and a good salad. We enjoyed it and would go back. Food was hot and traditionally medeteranian.

As a fan of the Mediterranean cuisine, I did like this place too. The meat was succulent and delicious, and the sides were fine too. We felt like the side salad had a bit strange dressing, but it didn't seriously affect our positive experience.

The only wine by the glass is house wine, but it’s decent. Lentil and falafel vegetarian plates are excellent and tasty, with rice, Turkish salad and pita. 2 sauces accompany that are both good.

We had chicken as well as vegetarian dishes and loved their chicken dish. Although the vegetarian dish wasn't as good as the chicken one, it still was quite good. A really good choice for some good food but not so much for experience.

Effendy is a hidden gem if you are in the mood for Mediterranean cuisine. Nestled on a side street, it is small, cozy and perfect for a catching up dinner with a friend- the food is tasty and flavourful- we tried the chicken kebabs which...More

The access contains a couple of small steps as it has an outside seating area that is raised off street level. Otherwise it is only 2 or 3 steps from street level. I do not remember a ramp, but it could be possible there is... More
