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

Great staff, delicious food, cold beers... What more could you want! Definitely worth a look, we ended up eating there twice in two days!

Although I prefer to try and eat like the locals, Fat Boys offers some tasty western food too when your stomach is in need of some starch, or if you're just craving hot chips (like I often do). Also great if you want to try some local cuisine- this was great as I went with some people I had met... More

The food was slightly better than average Turkish cuisine with all your standard local dishes. The menu also included burgers, nachos, and club sandwiches. There was no atmosphere or sensible decor with a Charlie Brown Christmas tree and burned out (and not working) air conditioner. The service was awful. We arrived around 19:00 and there was a fair amount of... More

You can get great prices on beer and other liquor in this dive bar, but you won't get much in the way of ambiance. The lighting is reminiscent of Pizza Hut.

I had mushrooms and cheese in clay pot and it was flavorful and fresh for only 5 dollars, but I wish it would have come with rice. Kevin thought the ckicken on a stick and thought it was mediocre. Beer is average price. I would pass on the spring rolls it is mainly bread. Great menu selection and next time... More

Fabulous place to relax and enjoy great food and wine. Super friendly service from Yilmaz and Yuri. Sit outside and enjoy the passing traffic, or inside - cosy and warm by the stove :-)

Great food, laid back atmosphere, friendly staff, service a bit slow, well worth stopping here and lounging on the cushions watching the world go by.

Definitely the go to bar for relaxing after a hard day's hiking. Ambience is good and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The food was also good with the kitchen staff being very accomodating when we arrived late one evening for dinner. We had what they had left which was a traditional home made lamb and a home made...

We visited twice (unfortunately, the second time we were too late for food as was desperate to try the muddy chocolate cake which had sold out the first time). What I liked most about this place as it has some beanbag type seats and low tables outside which are great to have a few drinks and people watch. The menu... More
