My wife's main course was nothing like how it appeared on the menu. When we told the waiter this he grudgingly took the plate away, bringing it back 15 minutes later, with it looking very similar. My wife later came down with food poisoning.

This Restaurant is great and the owner speaks perfect English which always helps when travelling and eating out. The prices are really reasonable and quite cheap but the service is outstanding. We ate there quite a bit and enjoyed every meal. I would definately go there again if I amke it back to Cappadocia again!
