Turquoise is one of our go-to restaurants as a family. The setting is quiet, cozy and friendly. The host clearly enjoys talking with the diners, and will gladly give more details about the dishes that are served. These are scrumptous! Quality ingredients, lots of flavour, hearty but not heavy. It is always a delight to spend the evening there. Highly... More

Light kitchen, good for the health, at interesting prices. Veggie is important for the chef. He likes to cook tasty veggie also for himself, he says. Wines at super good prices, other countries than France.. House wine is perfect. They do actions such as TAPAS ACTION – PASTA ACTION etc.. so better watch their website and blog, you will be...

The waiter is bizarre. He made a comment on my accent. We couldn't order 3x the same dish. He didn't have enough ingredients. I ordered what he recommended. Then we waited for about 1 hour. Dish was small. Veggies scarce. My wife's meal was cold, small but she liked the taste in the end. The menu prices are too high... More

Yesterday we had dinner at this restaurant. It is an odd place, since the cook runs a one-man-busines. This makes service rather slow. He is a good cook though, presenting us tasteful, colorful and healthy food. Loved the home made bread and the sigara boregi. I could easily eat there regularly, since he offers a variety of vegetarian dishes. A... More

It is a shame that some people want to run a restaurant but don't put any effort in an enjoyable evening for their customers. The "boss" came to shout at our table that we were too dumb to understand the menu, when we asked a simple question, and really put us on the spot in front of the whole restaurant.... More

We've visited this place with a small group...and really regretted it! The food is ok - although portions are small - but the chef is very impolite and so was the waiter. Drinks served 20 minutes after the food(if you remind the waiter enough), forgotten dishes, dirty glasses...and an owner/"chef" that can't stand the least bit of criticism. This place... More

We booked a table for 10 at Turquoise because they have a broad selection of vegetarian food on the menu. They even boast with a 'vegetarian friendly' emblem on their window and on the menu. During the evening we discovered that this friendliness only covered the selection of food and not the attitude towards customers (vegetarian or other). Some of... More

The Turkish food is ok, not more than that. But the service is really under par. The owner is unfriendly towards clients and staff.

In Turquoise the cook and waiter are one and the same person. Unfortunately. The man is a splendid chef, but he has his own ideas about what people should or should not ask. I love advice, but this guy lets you know in quite an arrogant way when something is against his ideas of good food. Even if one believes... More

Taken in by the pictures of a fresh-looking place in bright colours on the restaurant’s website, we reserved a table for a light business lunch for two at Turquoise. We took the bus to get to the Naamse Vest as it is quite a hike from the railway station or even the city centre. Turquoise occupies the ground-floor of a... More

Description
It's a well known fact that people who live in the Mediterranean countries live longer. It's due to their healthy life-style and their wholesome and fresh food. Add to that an ounce of passion and you've got the ingredients for Turquoise, Erdo's restaurant.
