At The Ottoman Grill you can experience a taste of Turkey without even leaving Exeter. A haven for meat lovers, The Ottoman Grill boasts a genuine copper charcoal barbeque, you can even sit around it and have a go cooking for yourself! As well as mouthwatering charcoal-grilled meats, the menu at The Ottoman Grill is bursting with other Mediterranean favourites. We recommend whetting your appetite with some meze like the homemade falafel or calamari before moving on to some traditional moussaka or the veg imam bayildi (aubergine stuffed with peppers, onion, garlic, tomato, simmered in olive oil). Located on Guinea Street, The Ottoman Grill attracts diners from all over to its city centre location. Book a table now!
Not one to rush. A great evening - friendly staff, best Mediterranean food in town, and really nice Turkish wine. Too easy to eat too much!
The food is very, very good - we thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience. Although it is a Turkish grill restaurant (which one thinks is traditionally for meat eaters) - the vegetarian were super happy with the offering and really enjoyed the food. Service was very friendly and there are even complimentary olives on arrivals. They made us feel very welcome. I can highly recommend this place!
This restaurant is a hidden gem. We keep going back. Authentic food. Better bet than chain restaurants and really good value for money. + + +
A real gem hidden away. The prices were decent, the portion sizes huge and the food was delicious. The service was top notch and very friendly. I love that everything is cooked on an open grill inside the restaurant. It makes the whole experience feel very authentic. I would definitely recommend the Ottoman Grill.
We had a lovely meal last night. The food was excellent. A couple of us had the shared meat platter cooked on the grill and it was really tasty and a really good plateful for 2 people. It was a mixture of chicken and lamb cooked different ways, served with fried potatoes, rice and salad and was like a really high class barbeque! The staff were very friendly and attentive. Recommended. We will be back soon!
The shared starter (veggie) Mezze was superb. Can't wait to have it again. Fresh tasting and having a homemade authentic feel. Mains grilled meats were cooked perfectly with both lamb and chicken really succulent and tender. Sides were fine, at least the Barrar Hatta? and Bulgar; but the salad was very over dressed with too many ingredients. Service was perfect (until a group of 24 turned up who hadn't pre booked meals). Cant blame restoring for that. All in all an enjoyable experience and we shall certainly return.
It was quiet ,but expected on a Sunday night .Didnt affect our evening / experience ,as with good friends . Service excellent /friendly & obliging .Loved the food , traditional & tasty .Will definitely return , as its great to have a restaurant locally that serves traditional Turkish food .
We ate early so it was quiet, but food and service were both very good. Food all cooked to order on a BBQ in the restaurant so you can see what's going on, it was a new and different experience and the food was great. Waiter was friendly and helpful. Will definitely go again next time we're in Exeter.
Fantastic fresh and tasty food. We really enjoyed every single dish we had. While we choose our dishes we were given nice spicy olives. Service was very attentive and we ought to go back to explore and try all the other dishes. Highly recommend!
Great food and reasonably priced too. We had the mezze to start - plenty of food. Followed that with a shared mixed grill that was cooked in front of us. My vegan daughter was also well catered for! Will be back!
