Meze Restaurant in Eastbourne deserves 5 stars, as we received a warm welcome by the friendly staff and management to this very authentic Turkish Restaurant. On a recent business trip to Eastbourne we were very pleased to find the Meze.
With a range of mouth watering starters with all the popular Dolma or stuffed vine leaves, Sigara Boregi or filo pastry parcels stuffed with feta cheese and parsley and mezes, this is a real introduction to quality Turkish food.
There was a good array of main course dishes that are cooked in traditional style on the open charcoal kitchen or in clay pots and copper vessels. You can see the chef using all fresh produce and herbs and the aroma's of the warm Turkish village bread from clay oven, is a real treat.
As a property agent specialising in Turkish holiday homes for sale and rent we are lucky enough to visit the country for many months of the year and visit quite a number of Turkish restaurants with clients, property developers and for pleasure and I have to say that Meze Restaurant in Eastbourne is a very good Turkish Restaurant that deserves your custom and will certainly have ours when returning to this lovely part of the UK.
All the best to Meze in Eastbourne and thank you for a lovely evening from all at artemisia-property.co.uk
This Turkish restaurant is a real gem, twinkling away brightly in the centre of Eastbourne, no more than a five minute walk from the seafront.
As the restaurant only has 40 covers, it is essential that you book on Friday and Saturday evenings especially, otherwise you won't get in!
A beautifully-designed restaurant in non-fussy but distinctly Turkish style, the piece-de-resistance has to be the open grill and original Turkish oven, where you can see your food being freshly prepared and cooked before you. Watching them kneading and preparing the bread mixture is rather hypnotic, you need to be careful you don't lose track of time.
The menu is simple with a good range of choices for starter, main and dessert. The wine list is, again, simple but offers good choices - nothing too classy, just good-priced clean-tasting wines which will complement your chosen dishes perfectly.
I don't think you will find fault with any dish that you choose - but if you haven't tried it before, try one of their guvec (Turkish stew) dishes. Ahhhh yummy!!
If you have a special occasion, do let the owner know in advance. It is a family-run restaurant and you definitely get that warm, welcoming feel as you enter - no matter how busy, you'll never know that from the very high service standards. Be warned 'tho - you get "nibbles" while they are preparing your starters - so that, in itself, is always another starter on top of what is heading your way ... make sure you wear elasticated waistbands!
Prices: very reasonable. For our most recent visit, for 3 people having starters, main course, 1 dessert and a bottle of wine to share plus water, we paid £60. Fantastic value for such a decent pile of food, beautifully presented.
Sehr gutes, türkisches Restaurant mit gehobenen Preisen, freundlichem Service und authentischem Flair.
Überschaubarer Raum mit Holzkohlegrill als Mittelpunkt des Restaurants, eine gemütliche Sitzecke mit orientalischen Kissen und typisch türkischer Dekoration lädt zu geselligen Abenden ein.
Als Gruß aus der Küche bekommt man Fladenbrot mit Oliven, Schafskäse und Kräuterbutter, sowie eine kleine Lahmacun (türkische Pizza) als Appetizer.
Die Hauptspeisen werden frisch vor dem Gast auf dem Grill oder im Lehmofen zubereitet. Qualität spiegelt sich im Preis wieder. Hauptgerichte gibt es ab £10. Das erscheint im internationalen und nationalen Vergleich nicht viel, ist jedoch für Eastbourne eher gehobene Küche.
Dennoch: Absolut ein Besuch wert!
Top notch place to go dine for 2 or in small groups. Food is very good, nice atmosphere and good value. One of the better restaurants in Eastbourne.
