Husband and I had a delicious light dinner at Ali Baba. We shared a variety of apps- hummus, cheese on the grill (yum!), red lentil soup, Greek salad - all wonderful. We're not big meat eaters and there's a lot of lamb on the menu but we faired just fine. Next time I'll try the baklava. Service was very attentive... More

Amazing Mediterranean cuisine. Loved the mix of appetizers, and enjoyed The Iskender vertically shaved lamb with rice. The staff were attentive and never had to ask for a single thing. Full glasses of water and clean napkins at every turn. Chef came to our table to make sure all went well. Don't miss this place on your trip to San... More

I went to Ali Baba with my girlfriend she had Adana Garlic with Yogurt sauce it was Amazing I live in New York and this is by far the best Turkish restaurant you can find. The owner and chef Suleyman Yilmaz introduced himself to us, he was very helpful and told us he has 40 years experience. Try the hummus... More

loved the fresh, hot from the oven, bread served with the delicious hummus and tzatziki. Everyone loved their meals, from the lamb curry, grilled beef, grilled chicken. Wish we had room for baklava, but we were stuffed!

I wasn't sure if we would find good Turkish/Mediterranean food on the island, but this place was great! Definitely recommend the hummus and flat bread. I got the kafte casserole and the lamb was very juicy. Wine selection and staff were also great! There weren't many people when we went, so we had a nice, quiet atmosphere.

I tried the black & fire chicken meal, was very tasty and spicy. Nice decoration, Great location, you can see amazing fish swimming near the shore from your seat. A bit pricey but worth it, the waiter gave us 10% discount and free dessert. Helpful and nice waiters. Watch out for the annoying cats while eating, we had to use... More

I frequent this place quite a lot. I love their food and their service. I usually order baba ghanush (delightful!) and the meat plate for 2 (a great mix of everything) and I can't forget the the lavash bread which is AMAZING! I would recommend this place to anyone that enjoys turkish/mediterranean food!

Amazing find in the Condado District. They make fresh lavash bread for the table and have some of the best hummus that we've ever had! We wish we had found the restaurant sooner !

We sat at the bar for our dinner the first night in town and were delighted at how nice the staff were. We ordered the meat plate for 2. It was $55, but it was a LOT of food and boy was it absolutely amazing! While we ate dinner, we talked with the bartender Tony about local attractions on the... More

We've stayed in this Condado neighborhood countless times and only after a recent trip to Greece and Turkey did we notice this Turkish Restaurant right across from our hotel. What a treat! Tasty Lavash, perfectly seasoned Baba Ganosh and warm spinach feta pastries set the tone for what we knew would be a wonderful meal. We had chicken shish kebab... More
