Amazing place! Best food and hospitality

Great place with super friendly host who speaks 8 languages. Authentic food at very reasonable prices! Defiantly worth a visit. Not a tourist trap but a very local experience. Must eat here at least once! Sean & Natasha, South Africa

No alcohol served and the food was average. Ordered the kofte (small portion) and the vegetarion grill (fried potato and zucchini only). It was average, wouldn't return.

Nazar Borek is another favourite of mine in Goreme. Good wholesome food at a very reasonable price. And there is always a friendly greeting from the owner Refik. If you're like, he'll whip out some of his musical instruments and entertain you with some Turkish music!

Stayed in Goreme for 3 days and had all my meals here. The staff are lovely and the restaurant itself is just so cosy. You can tuck in with a good book and a cup of their delicious sahleb (wild orchid juice). Their kofte is particularly delicious! A must try

Had lunch here. Chef Rafik speaks Turkish, English, Danish, and German, and is a charming man. The food (we had gözleme) were super-fresh and delicious. They don't serve alcohol (I think) but tea and (Turkish) coffee of course, as well as a selection of other hot & cold drinks and freshly squeezed juices and ayran (Turkish yoghurt drink). Can't go...
