Popped in for a late lunch. There was only one other table in use. It was a nice, warm sunny day and I was able to sit at one of the outside tables and watch life go by. I had the lamb shish and although it was pleasant enough it was nothing out of the ordinary. Service was functional but... More

Restaurant serves nice Turkish cuisine, including stew in claypot which is apparently something unique in this region. We also tried a sampling plate of meze which was also a great experience for us.

Unfortunately this was the worst food I had during my stay in Cappadocia. The service was great and the soup nice which gives two stars but I couldn't eat the steak.

We went there for a late lunch, and were very happy with the place. It is decorated with taste, with an authentic look. There is a stove in the middle of the room, which warmed us and was also used to cook tea (which was very nice btw). We ordered yogurt soup, salad and vegetarian mushroom casseroles, and everything was... More

The food was excellent, with very delicate flavours. And we didn't feel the staff were trying to be excessively pleasing. We will go again before leaving Goreme.

Visited on a cold Dec night with my wife. Ordered their special - Keyif Kebab for 40 TL. Dish came and we realised it was actually a whole piece of beef steak. The steak was buried under a mountain of shredded deep fried potatoes which was topped with what tasted like cold mayo or yogurt...Now, I dont claim to be... More
