Known as the best Turkish restaurant in Melbourne, Achelya offers an outstanding dining experience.

Step into this Mediterranean world of smoking meats, live music, twirling belly dancers and smiling waiters, and you’ll be instantly enchanted. Bright and stylishly designed, with soaring ceilings and a central island bar, Achelya is perfect for special occasions.

Feast your eyes on a menu of modern Mediterranean food. Designed to suit all tastes, with an emphasis on flexibility, they offer favourites like spiced lamb, mouthwatering kebabs, chicken skewers, fresh seafood and kofte (just-baked Turkish bread.) Make sure you save room for their ornate sweet treats, like the homemade Baklava!

In the heart of the city, perched right on the docklands, Achelya Restaurant Cafe & Bar is an idyllic location for fine dining.

Only game for a quick bite. Had the mixed grill. Generous size, decent quality. Ordered a dip to go with it, as on its own it needed something more. Friendly service. Shame the outside dining tables were dirty and not set up properly.

Greeted and served by a very friendly staff member who was attentive and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our meals. Dip platter was amazing with a wide variety of selections and the kebab did not disappoint.

Shisha smell quite strong but we sat as far away as possible from it, so not too bad, and food was very good.
