    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!

    The food was excellent fresh authentic Turkish offerings that are well prepared and well presented. The restaurant is ensconced in a cluster of interesting shops and restaurants amidst towering old trees and practically entirely outdoors. The restaurant does not serve any alcohol, but their Turkish Coffee was very rich and satisfying. Parking is the one challenge. There is not valet or parking area in this Little Haiti gem. Much of the surrounding area is for Resident Only parking. Be prepared to park quite a ways away unless you get lucky with one of the few spots curbside across the street on 2nd Avenue.

    The service was excellent. The team was helpful and considerate. The food was very good. I was hoping for a bit more variety of dishes-very limited main dishes. We thought the appetizers more flavorful than the main dishes. Desert was excellent (we had the rice pudding)

    The experience at El Turco was horrible. The waiter had a bad attitude, they don’t have a lot of options in their menu and the food was tasteless and overpriced for what you get. I do not recommend this place.
