This restaurant was only a block away from our hotel so it was an excellent find! From the moment we entered the premises to the time we left, we felt very welcomed. The view of the sunset from our table was spectacular. Our server, Nidal,...was made sure that we were enjoying our time, food & drinks. My husband & I shared the chicken in phyllo dish & it was definitely a sharing dish as it was a generous portion & was very delicious. Our friend had the vegetarian oven baked dish & it was perfectly made & again, a generous portion. We had the most amazing time & would most definitely go back & recommend highly!More

I would HIGHLY recommend visiting this spot! Very tasty food, good portions, and friendly service, and the decor is great. we all really enjoyed this place. Got beef steak and it was properly cooked and the staff Nidal served with a beautiful big smile. My...friend and I sat close to the window and could see the sunset, and it was so beautiful. It was one of our best meals in Turkey. What a gem! I hope to come back again!!!More

Seriously I don’t know who your competitors are but they should laugh in their dreams for having such lousy competitor like you. Shame on you for FAKELY claiming the negative reviews as fake. My partner and I had the dinner at your place on 5th...June and was trapped in the hotel by diarrhea and vomiting for the next two days and missed most of our trip because of the stale food. You own us more than just an apology. And if that’s what you serve the foreigners, I believe you also own apologies to your country for ruining her reputation.More

The worst restaurant in Turkey, I don’t know why it has such a high rating. At the first bite, we found the fish and meat are not fresh. All of us got food poisoning after having the meal here. We vomiting and diarrhea all the...day. We can’t do anything and only can lie on the bed. If you want to destroy your journey, this is the best place to go.More

Our family came to see Ephesus and we had no intention of spending the night in Selçuk. In fact our plan was to travel to Bodrum after visiting the ruins. We simply wanted to grab a quick lunch, and we read about Ayasoluk online. However,...as soon as we walked through the front gate, we realized that Ayasoluk is the destination. Murselin, the hotel and restaurant manager welcomed us in, and within a shot time we felt we’d made a new friend. He won us over with his enchanting hospitality and we decided to rent a couple rooms. That evening we stayed up late into the night with the family of the hotel owner. The food was simply exquisite. The hospitality - top shelf! The views are beautiful! The rooms are charming! Everything was clean and pristine! Our time at this little hotel marks one of the best days of our lives. If you want the perfect experience in Selçuk, I highly recommend that you arrive at the Ephesus Ruins early in the morning right when they open. Spend three or four hours enjoying the ancient history, and then retreat to this little cut of paradise. Order a bottle of wine, and sit outside next to the pool, eat as much lamb as you can fit in your belly. You’ll never want to leave. If your traveling to Selçuk, Ayasoluk is the destination!More

When you see five stars and several reviews you start to question the validity. However this is truly the gem that was written by several others. The grilled vegetables, the lamb shanks and the hummus dip was exceptional. The recommended wine which was a dry...younger wine paired perfectly. The following night we went back for dessert and wine and had the fruit platter and the cheese dessert which was similar to baclava. Though I’m not a dessert guy others really enjoyed it. Beyond the food the service was professional and attentive without being overbearing. The restaurant has only about 8 tables but laid out perfectly to allow casual conversation with other guests but not on top of each other. Definitely worth the visit!More
