I have had the pleasure of dining at the Orient for the past 20 years- it just gets better!!!

I Have just returned from 6 weeks of wandering Turkey -My last week was spent in my favourite spot: GOREME. I was able to enjoy four amazing dinners at the Orient. I tried and/or shared a great variety of both entrees and salads and, honestly, every meal was special. I also found the house... read more

I ate at Orient twice while visiting Goreme and both times were wonderful experiences with delicious food and amazing wines! I tried the pottery kebab and then the marbled steak with 4 sauces the next night, which were both incredible! The waiters were so attentive and made sure everything was perfect! And the owner of the restaurant even came by... More

The food was wonderful. My husband had a steak served on a sizzling slab of marble (I think!) that was delicious and kept the steak warm throughout the meal. I had a whole trout that was delightful. The service was excellent. It was a chilly evening so we sat inside and the ambiance was lovely. There was a fire roaring... More

Our first proper meal in Turkey and it didn't disappoint. We had the pepper steak which was cooked to perfection. The wait staff were pretty uninterested though and the atmosphere was pretty drab. The food, however, makes you forget all that. Would definitely recommend to steak lovers.

On high recommendation by our hotel, we tried this restaurant, but vegetarian food was quite a disappointment ! You can easily skip this place!

Mention that you stay in Ottoman Cave Suite to get a discount. The Clay pot beef is a bit small compared with the same dish we had later in Istanbul. But it's tasty.

We have been travelling around Turkey for 5 weeks and have eaten at many restaurants. This restaurant fits in the 4 star category in all categories - good food, good service and reasonably priced - but none of it deserves a 5 star. We found that some of the food did not have the taste that we have experienced across... More

I had 3 dinners at Orient restaurant and tasted several different delicious traditional dishes. I really suggest this place for the excellent food, very kind staff and outstanding selection of music. It's a really great place where to eat the typical Anatolian food and live the real atmosphere of Goreme.

If you are (un)lucky enough to get there at the same time with one of local VIP's you may be left unattended till VIP is taken care of. After him, we were finally seated. Initially they serve sun dried tomato with olives and olive oil with bread. Bread was quite dry. We had steak with 4 different sauces. It was... More

Just a few minutes walking from our accommodation. The first night we had steak with 4 sauces. The best steak we have had in Turkey with beautiful vegetables. On arrival we were served lovely sun dried tomatoes and bread on both evenings and complimentary fruit at end of meal. What let it down was rack of lamb which we ordered... More
