Efendy was definitely the top restaurant on a trip that included Boston, the Maine coast and other places in Nova Scotia. First, the owner or manager was accommodating as we showed up without reservations. And the food was excellent. Linda's moussaka was very tasty, and...More

As a change from the inevitable seafood bars, this is a great spot. Although the seafood kebab WAS delicious.

It is ironic to visit Nova Scotia for maritime experience and to have the best meal in Halifax in a Turkish restaurant :). Seriously, I had a tuna steak and my wife had some kind of seafood medley and everything was very good. Great combination...More
