What welcoming and amazing people! Hakom was so wonderful to remember us from five years ago! We ate there every night-- there is no better food or hospitality in Turkey! This is a real family owned restaurant and they take pride in what they do. don't miss it

Home prepared meals by the husband and wife team. The Adana kebab was excellent with salad, rice and chips. There are remains of a Byzantine aqueduct and fountain right behind the seating area.

An absolute must go to in Selcuk! Such genuine owners, who cook home made traditional food themselves. The food was such high quality and good value. Highly reckoned the meat casserole! The owner was so hospitable and made us Aussies feel great away from home!

Thankfully I found it through Google Maps. It was nice experience to try their lamb chops. It was one of the tastiest lamb chop I tried so far. And the price is reasonable. One plate lamb chops for a single person is 35TL + 5TL for the cola. Rannessa

You can't go wrong with this place, the owner was very knowledgeable about the area and the beef casserole was the perfect blend of meat, vegetable and spice. A definite must when visiting the tourist sites of Ephesus

We rarely like to visit places more than once; however, after our visit to Edjer last year, we knew we had to return. We can gladly say that our visit to Ejder this time exceeded our memories of last year. This family run restaurant is truly a great experience. The quality of the tavuk şiş is fantastic, and the grill... More

점심때 가서 점심먹었는데 주인 아저씨도 너무 친절하시고 그릴메뉴 시키면 화덕에 바로 구워주셔서 정말 맛있습니다! 터키에서 먹었던 모든 음식 중에 가장 맛있었고 양고기 소고기 닭고기 다좋아요! 그래서 저녁때 다른 식당에서 밥 먹었는데도 2차로 또먹었습니닿ㅎㅎㅎ 특히 Mixed grill이었나 이 메뉴 시키면 양도 정말 푸짐하게 나와요! 그런데 가격도 그렇게 안비쌉니당 고기 좋아하시는 분들은 절대 후회 안하실듯 Very kind and friendly staff. Especially nice,... More

Beautiful views, warm atmosphere, friendly service, great affordable food and honest-to-god the best Turkish coffee you'll ever have - what more can I say? Do yourself a favour and stop by.
