About Efes Meze
Family-owned and a fixture down Greenwich’s Trafalgar Road for over 15 years, those uninitiated into the pleasures of Efes Meze are urged to book a table soon. With a traditional Turkish open grill as the centrepiece of this elegant, homely split-level restaurant, plus an outdoor shisha lounge, wide range of drinks (including the namesake Efes beer) and Turkey’s national spirit raki, Efes is one of London’s best for Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine and hospitality.

Long established in London’s Greenwich, Efes Meze is privileged to have long relationships with reliable suppliers keeping their kitchen stocked with fresh and organic produce, contributing to the renown attached to their mouth-watering menu of Turkish and Mediterranean delicacies. As is often the case with Turkish, Lebanese, and Middle Eastern restaurants, the quality of their sharing platters is a good gauge of the general standard when it comes to the rest of the menu. Well, this Trafalgar Road institution has made delectable meze a focus of its hospitality for the past 15 years, and a couple of these hot or cold numbers, paired with a glass of Efes beer, perhaps, a fine wine or a glass of fiery raki, ensure that Efes Meze ranks high in the city’s choices for Turkish fine dining.
Without a doubt, the focus of Efes Meze’s dining experience, if you put its famous meze to one side for a moment, is the presence of a traditional open charcoal grill in the restaurant. Here, you can watch Efes’ chefs expertly grill boldly marinated, spiced and flavoured meats to perfection. The Efes Meze special mixed grill is good for the indecisive, while rarities like the regional Inegol kofte to tempt those who think they’ve exhausted the possibilities when it comes to dining Turkish style in London. Another feature of Efes’ Trafalgar Road premises is its outdoor (but all weather) shisha lounge, where patrons can enjoy a flavoured hookah or even a cigar, ideally with a glass of raki, Turkish tea or coffee after their meal. While Efes is well-known to Greenwich locals, this beautifully appointed and hospitable restaurant deserves a wider audience.
Excellent food and very friendly staff. Everywhere very clean. Had the chicken shish which was "delish". Will definitely use again when in Greenwich. Completely recommended
The food was fresh, cooked nicely and stuff was friendly, helpful and very professional. The restaurant is very clean the sitting arrangement is very nice.
Amazing quick and easy to get our table and the food was great too! The staff are all welcoming and lovely from beginning to end of service. Would highly recommend
Excellent service, gorgeous food and fab prices. Highly recommend this restaurant. In particular the espresso martinis were delicious. Good vegetarian options too. We will be visiting regularly
This was our first visit to Efes Meze and we willl definitely return. Greenwich is so crowded but 10 minutes walk away there's an excellent choice of restaurants. Efes is great, it has a very colourful decor and a relaxed feel, friendly staff, excellent service. Both food and house wine were excellent and very reasonably priced. Leave the tourists around the Cutty Sark and take a 10 minute walk down Trafalgar Road, it's well worth it!
I had a wonderful evening at Efes Meze, mostly because of the beautiful company I was with but also because of the beautiful surroundings, fantastic food and excellent staff. Efes Meze is the perfect place to share a meal with friends or someone special.
Visited Efes Meze for the first time having recently moved to Greenwich. The food is fabulous, the atmosphere great and the staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful. The meal was tasty and great value for money, and always served with a smile. A truly lovely experience and a great social place for a meal with family and friends. I would thoroughly recommended a visit. :-)
Iv visited this Restuarant a few times, and find it a comfortable place to eat with freinds or family. The food is good quality,well cooked a nicely presented .it always looks so nice. My biggest problem is what to have from the huge menu. I love almost everything. The staff are helpful, nice people and always friendly . If you want a happy relaxed night out I would defiantly recommend this Restuarant ....don't tell too many people otherwise there will be a waiting list for a table.
The restaurant is clean and they have really good food. Very nice staff welcoming us kindly and they have also gave us 2 deserts for free because they ran out the one we alsk for. I would go again.
Food was fantastic and staff very friendly and welcoming. Only reason I have not given a 6 is because the service was slow and we often found ourselves having to go up and ask for what we needed or were waiting on.
Tasty food, good service, nice decor. The price was reasonable, we got the shared mixed grill. Didn't wait long for food at all. We went on Thursday eve wick was very quiet. Only complaint is Restaurant had a damp smell which put me off.
Good food - good service - nice ambience - my friend really liked the house red, while I enjoyed Efes beer. It is a bit far from central Greenwich - but the area is interesting.
This is a small family-run restaurant and we were made to feel very welcome. The staff were friendly and helpful and the service was excellent. The food was good -- I especially enjoyed the moussaka.
Popular restaurant, we visited early evening on a Thursday, quiet when we arrived though by the time we left there wasn't a table free. Food, service and wine excellent
Great food especially the fish feze starter platter. Great service. Also a great atmosphere as the restaurant has a nice feel to it. Would definitely visit again soon.
Except for the location of the cafe, everything else is perfect. The decor, setting, taste of food, option on the menu, friendly talkitive owner and very friendly waiting staff. Absolutely loved the place.
