Excellent food, great service

Love this place. The patio has poofy cushions to sit on at low tables. A cosy fire inside warms the dining room during the cold evenings. The food - fantastic. The lamb clay pot is a local specialty and absolutely delicious. The burgers are excellent. he fries are hand cut! The bar is well... read 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

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 :-)
