We frequented this bar a few times because it was one of the only places in Goreme that offered Shisha/nargile consistently. Shisha was ok - limited flavours and coal service was on request - not like Istanbul where staff regularly fix and freshen coals. Food and service was average. They have nice cushions to sit on outside under a veranda.... More

I never would've wandered into this restaurant based on the name alone, but a local recommended it so I thought I'd give it a try. I sat on one of the impossibly comfy tables outside, with big couches to lounge on that tempt you to spend the entire day there, and ate a dish of chicken with yogurt sauce that... More

Recommended by other Peregrine Travellers, fabulous bar/restaurant. Wonderful local food, good value for money and the option to sit around on big cushions with low tables. Great atmosphere and the owner even drove my daughter back to her hotel when it started snowing at the end of the night!

My friend and I ordered the Aussie Pie and Chips, and what we got was an absolute mess. Pie was watered down mince, pastry was like cardboard, chips were soggy and just awful. Im still shocked that a restaurant would even let something like this go to the table. The worse part is, the owner's are Australian!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us on Trip Advisor - and for adding a photo too to compliment your review. It's a shame you didnt mention how we handled your complaint at the time. We did apologise for the chips and agreed with you that they were terrible and definitely not our normal standard... More

Goreme is a pretty village and we didn't expect to find any bars here. We were taken for a pleasant surprise when our Hotel - Divan Cave house recommended this place for evening out.

We went to fat boys for lunch and fell in love with the staff (and the food). They were so warm and welcoming and we ended up returning there for dinner as well. Beautiful and tasty food, what a brilliant place!

Run by an Australian and her Turkish husband. You wont find anything but a really friendly, casual place to grab some delicious local food and have a drink or two. Nothing pretentious at all and really great menu options. Super value too! Don't let the name put you off! Great friendly service!

this was a chilled evening and good food, reasonably priced in a friendly bar/restaurant. Owner was friendly as were the rest of the staff. No pressure to leave, though not in the height of the season.
