**WE ARE OPEN ON BANK HOLIDAYS **At Ephesus Restaurant, we promise you a meal to delight all of your culinary senses and bring you to the very heart of Turkish & Greek cuisine. Turkish & Greek cuisine is largely the heritage of Ottoman cuisine, which can be described as a fusion and refinement of Central Asian, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and Balkan cuisines.Turkish & Greek cuisine has in turn influenced those and other neighbouring cuisines, including those of Western Europe. The Ottomans fused various culinary traditions of their realm with influences from Middle Eastern cuisines, along with traditional Turkic elements from Central Asia (such as yogurt), creating a vast array of specialities-many with strong regional associations. It is this same fusing of traditional influences with our own regional expertise in delicacy that enables us to create a one of a kind eating extravaganza.

Birthday meal for 6 as last time all really nice. Recommend the Ephesus special chicken off the mains menu. Also enjoyed the meze starter, couldn’t fit in a desert though. Great atmosphere and great service make this a regular stop for us when in Torquay....More

Me and my son thoroughly enjoyed an impromptu meal here. We were greeted by a charming man upon arrival. Food was great! Lovely tender lamb cooked to perfection over coals, garlic sauce, rice and salad! A little on the pricey side for the amount served...More

We ate here whilst having a last minute night in Torquay. Food was amazing and staff were excellent. Would definitely recommend to all. Food was hot and even though it was busy there was no wait on food.

We visited for dinner and were greeted in a professional manner. The waitresses were very friendly and made us welcome. The food was true to type and hot and tasty. Not quite to our usual standards which are quite high. We enjoyed our visit though...More
