    The food and ambiance were wonderful. The owner personally stopped by our table, welcomed us, chatted with us, and made his recommendations for food choices. Very nice touch, which I and my girlfriend greatly appreciated. My only complaint: very loud because of a nearby nightclub. In fairness, the restaurant had no control over the nearby noise.

    Discovered this gem by accident. Glad we did. It’s a cute little restaurant located in Upper Buena Vista. Great Turkish food! Loved the decor and the Turkish dishes, bowls and cups. Felt like we were on the Mediterranean on vacation. We went to El Turco for Sunday brunch. Had the Turkish Breakfast which was absolutely yummy—small plates of food of all different flavors and texture—enough for 2 people. The breads were amazing. We hung out all day at the center, doing some shopping and drinking. We decided to go back to El Turco for dinner. Had their hummus which was fabulous and the Kavurma Pilav. Absolutely delish. The meat was very tender, juicy and tasty; and once mixed with the fluffy rice, it was to die for. We are definitely going back to El Turco! Was a little disappointed they didn’t do anything special for my cousin, even though I had requested it on the Open Table reservation, as we were celebrating her birthday.

    Arrived and was told the kitchen was closed. So needless to say we weren’t able to try their food. Maybe next time they won’t waste peoples precious time and not take a reservation they’re unable to commit to.

    El Turco is a hidden gem! The food was incredible - everything we ordered was fresh and tasty. They do not serve alcohol, but you can bring your own. All seating is outside, so it is dog friendly. The owner came out and chatted with us for a little bit - it truly felt like we were visiting a friend’s house. I highly recommend eating here!

    We've returned to dine here about 3 times now and have brought visiting friends. Cozy quaint with authentic Turkish vibe for home cooked dishes. My husband and I love all the dishes we've ordered from the Humus to the Borak and main dishes. We shall continue to return.

    Fui con una reserva de Open Table para una experiencia (brunch familiar) y cuando llegamos nos dijeron que no existia tal cosa y que debiamos pedir de la carta. La comida estuvo normal, nada descollante como cualquier recomendacion de la guia Michelin. No entiendo como es Bib Gourmand este restaurant.

    Best Turkish restaurant in Miami, where you can experience traditional Turkish breakfast. Besides, they also offer some of the best Turkish dishes. Full of flavor with a great service. It is also located in a great spot in Upper Buena Vista, making it more exotic, and the real feel of a local Turkish restaurant.

    Vegan Turkish Food in Miami? Yes I found a really good one ☝️ today @elturcoturkishfood in Upper Buena Vista. Owner/Chef Osmond is your host and serves up some mighty delicious beet hummus, spinach Börek and a spectacular Turkish salad. All the pita bread and Turkish coffee I could want- and some concoction of cold lentils with pomegranate sauce that was surprisingly yummy. Not many places in Miami are worth the drive or the money for me- but this place is now near the top of my list!
