We would not have stopped here fro dinner. The owner said to my husband, 'gidday mate' when seeing the ANZAC poppy on his jacket. We had a great kebab meal. Also laughed when we saw the Vegemite and bread entree on the menu. The owner had lived in Aussie for a while before returning to beautiful... read more

We visited Fat Boys, which is located near to the bus station, for an early evening meal. We sat on the low seats which face towards the street and enjoyed watching the world go by whilst waiting for our meals. We both had Guvec (one vegetarian and one chicken) which were both very tasty. Service was quick and professional. We'd... More

Fat Boys is located in the heart of Goreme Town. The owner Yilmaz is a local from Goreme and also owns Taskonak Hotel in Goreme. We sat in the verandah; which has low tables and overlooks the street. We began with chilled beers and asked for suggestions for dinner - local cuisine only. Yilmaz recommended some dishes and also told... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the food and service here. Several of the reviews here talked about inadequate service. We found the service excellent. In addition, finding a restaurant or bar in touristy Turkish towns that have beer on draft is difficult- trust me. This place has cold Tuborg and Efes on draft. My vegetarian wife loved the lentil burger. Prices are... More

I had heard nad things about the food at Fat Boys. Whether it was my lowered expectations or not, the food was a pleasant surprise. The food is simple but well executed. Fat Boys real strength is the easy going good nature of the staff. There actually is a chunky little kid, maybe 10 years old who acts like he... More

We were lured by the relaxed street side seating and the prospect of Belgian beer and an Aussie meat pie. Alas they were out of Leffe blonde and the pie was awful - no taste and a world away from anything resembling a dinkum pie. Service OK until the staff started smoking right beside our table. They can do better... More

We have been to Fat Boys twice in our stay in Goreme. It was recommended by our hotel, and the recommendation was completely on point! The food is lovely, generous servings, appropriate price, especially in the middle of a tourist trap like Goreme. Average cost of entree was 6-7 Lira, mains vary but average would be 22-28 Lira. We usually... More

Food was average. We ordered Lentil soup, Kebab and Greek Salad. None of them were to our expectation. This may be one of worst food we ate in Turkey. I have never seen except this place staff busy with chatting among themselves or their family members at workplace. So I never returned to the place during my 3 days of... More
