Stone Cave

Even the seats are (fibreglass) stone in the Turkish eating institution in the middle of this still booming neighbourhood, making for an unusual but fun night out. Quality national cuisine - falafel, meze, kebab - at reasonable prices is served up in a bustling and convivial atmosphere and, come the weekend, the music is accompanied by a belly dancer.

The food is a good standard and there is good variety on the menu. So it's unfortunate that they wouldn't let us use our Time Out card even though it was a Sunday and according to the Time Out card site this should have entitled us to get 2-for-1 on main courses. It seemed like the Manager decided this on the spot. Kinda spoiled the experience and would put me off going back.

There's mezze and then there's MEZZE, this is the latter. The Stone Cave is atmospheric, ambient and positively buzzing in the evening but actually, it's my favourite place to ladies-wot-lunchit. We always go for a mixed mezze for two, which includes hot and cold small dishes, and are thrilled when the MEZZE arrives; plentiful, perfect and...plates, so many of them! Having often found mezze restaurants yawnsworthy, I had quite the experience when I visited this place, it was a revelation and an education rolled into one. Furthermore, it is reasonably priced and the service is warm and attentive.  

Outstanding tasty food and a lovely atmosphere, recommend it give a go guys

The best service delicious food amazing entertainment and atmosphere. My number one restaurant in Hackney.

The best Turkish breakfast in Hackney and the loveliest staff. I often sit and work in here, the relaxed and friendly vibe has led to some of my best thoughts.

Well this is a place wich i go from around 15 years and i would say the best place in town . The best fresh food served and also the best service so i think its worth voting for..


With so many Turkish restaurants to choose from in Dalston, Stone Cave remains one of the best. Feeling less like a takeaway than some of the Ocakbasi options, it's a friendly, well-decorated, cosy cave with an excellent menu and attentive staff. If you're hungry, then be sure to go for the set menu - a range of hot and cold starters and then a mixed meat (/ veggie) plate and a glass of wine.

Great local place always packed and the food is excellent service is great

Simply amazing!!! Where else do you get amazing food and belly dancing all inside a cave restaurant!

Best restaurant in hackney excellent venue friendly staff delicous food and perfect cocktails.

I love the food at Stone Cave and my favourite drink is freshly squeezed orange juice. Thanks guys and good luck love london awards.


I used to live across the street from this place and came here often. In 5 years I've been coming here, they've changed quite a bit. When this place started to become popular, their portions decreased and prices went up. A lot of the dishes weren't served as they were before. Was a bit sad and disappointed. BUT staff was always great and food delicious. Just don't get greedy pls and stay the same!

They deserve for the nomination because of amazing food and proffesional stuff. Traditional dishes are amazing and stuff always helpful. Crossing my fingers for you Stone Cave! x

With a plethora of Turkish restaurants in the area this one is definitely my favourite!

Stone cave has become one of the best places to visit in Dalston in past 3 years, as the area improved the restaurant became very good and very popular. I have got addicted to Stone cave's food and service! Well recommended for family venues or any other gatherings. Perfect food and amazing service!
