Was last here about 25 years ago - same friendly service (albeit a little slow) and delicious and generous meals.

Second visit. Confirms the good vibes of the place and tasty food. There was a good crowd for a Sunday night with a party for a birthday. Worthwhile going again for another selection of food from the quite interesting menu.

Beautiful restaurant that we always return. Delicious meals and live music is the best.

First time visit. The service was prompt and friendly. We had the Morrocan banquet. The meals arrived quite quickly with a half-full restaurant on a Sunday night. They were tasty and satisfying portions. The evening was enhanced with a live performance with two artists on guitar (& vocals) and percussion. Definitely going to go back for another experience from the menu.

The wait staff were very friendly and extremely considerate. They seemed short-staffed as it was difficult to get their attention for drinks or to order additional food items. The food was amazing. My table had some fussy eaters but everyone loved the food. Definitely recommend the lamb claypot and the mixed grill. We are planning our return visit soon.

About Arabesque

Sultan’s palace Combining a bar and restaurant with a distinct Middle Eastern feel, Arabesque in leafy Elsternwick offers contemporary tastes of Turkish culture through the menu and its sumptuous interior. Tactile and inviting, Arabesque features brightly coloured bolts of draped cloth on the ceiling, warm gold and red tones and romantic lighting aplenty. Reminiscent of a Sultan’s palace this is an intimate modern and stylish space where you can enjoy a selection of traditional starters, dips and appetisers/meze with a glass of wine, mains such as Shish lamb, a selection of salads like tabouleh and delectable desserts such as Turkish Delight and Baklava. Best dish: three dips with Turkish bread & pickled vegetables
