My partner and myself spent our last evening in Goreme at this beautiful, family-run restaurant. We were recommended through our hotel, Fairy Chimney Inn (also wonderful!), as one of the best places to try the clay pot dish. Nostalji is a beautiful hotel, set at the top of one of the towns smaller hills, which gives you a beautiful view... More

Overall, I have enjoyed Turkish food and restaurants. Nostalji was awful. We came because it was recommended on TA and elsewhere. The one waiter was the definition of begrudging. The menu is very limited--a handful of appetizers and 5 mains--3 pottery kebaps and 2 stir fry dishes. If you haven't ordered the pottery kebap 2 hours in advance, you can... More

Although the view was fabulous. The menu itself had few choices. We had a nice "Testi Kebab" lamb and beef. The waiters were fasting so they were very slow and did not understand some of our requests. Their brains were not working properly. If those waiters were not fasting for the Ramadan, I am sure the service would have been... More

Lovely restaurant, a must if your seeking out a genuine testi kebap. We had a chicken 30lira and a lamb 40 lira, great value and you even get to open it yourself. The meat was melt in your mouth tasty so so suculent and yummy. Also worth trying is the squash flower. The service was propmt and polite, its a... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel owner who was born in Goreme and takes his family there. It is apparently, authentic Goreme cuisine. My idea of good food is something I cannot cook or it has a unique flavour. What we ate fell into the second category. The two dips resembled humus and babaganoush but were different and delicious.... More
