Lovely lunch

Had a fantastic lamb and yoghurt dish for lunch in this cool setting - great to have the windows open on Easter Sunday and watch the world go by. Very friendly service, would be good to visit in the evening as well.

Small portions of food that is clearly prepared yesterday or so. Cold soup and the worst rendition of spring rolls ı have ever seen. Not to mention the usual "we have problem with our credit card pos, please pay cash" scenario.

We made some acquaintances over Sheesha during our dinner at Fat Boys Bar, a couple from UK. Good conversation and nice food. We met a local boy serving us who was a big bollywood fan and was talking incessantly about his bollywood dreams. Amazed by how people connect over weirdest of this :)

Turkish meets Australian. Great food & prices. There are giant cushions outside where everyone prefers to sit. They do Vegemite on toast!

Our dinner at Fat Boys Bar was one of my favorite from our visit to Cappadocia. Some of us tried the traditional (and famous) pottery kebab, which is basically a stew cooked in a pot, which they break open for you at the table (quite a cool experience). I ordered the köfte, which tasted absolutely fantastic. Although the music selection... More

We travelled to Goreme as part of a group. Tonight’s dinner would be at one of our leader’s favorite eateries. The group wandered towards the centre of town, stopping outside Fat Boys. Is this where we will eat?! many of us said, rather taken aback by the somewhat shabby and not very attractive façade. We suspect that few in the... More

Fat Boys was easily the best food we ate in the centre of Goreme! Staff were obliging and the food was excellent, mainly wonderful Turkish fare, with the additional opption of an Australian meat pie and vegemite on toast for any truly homesick Aussies. In my own case, one of the two Australian women working here did make me an... More
