All i can say is, this is a must visit restaurant when you are coming to Goreme. A lovely place up in the hill and inside a cave. Yes, a cave! Cappadocia is famous for it’s cave hotel. If you want to feel how it feels like to eat in a cave restaurant, Topdeck is a right place to go.... More

Great food in a lovely cave setting. The portion sizes are more generous than in most other local restaurants. That said, two of us had the medium sized Meze, two main dishes, a fruit platter and a rice pudding dessert and that worked out just right. The wait staff speaks excellent English. TL100 for 2.

Super fresh ingredients, lovely staff and cute little cave atmosphere with cushions everywhere. Very traditional. We adored all the food brought out to us and it was really quite cheap! Be sure to book in advance because they have only 10 tables!

Food was so delicious that we had to go back again the second night. Service was perfect, very attentive and caring (just like eating at home with a big family in a cave setting). Must orders: Lamb dish and the mezze were definitely some of the best we ever ate – home-cooked style, authentic and flavorful. Limited seats so you... More

Not a bad place but I think it's overrated. It offers tasty homemade food, good wine but service isn't attentive to visitors.

The food and service here were excellent. The mezze and borek were some of the best we'd had on our trip. The mains were tasty but not that memorable. This family run restaurant is definitely worth a visit, you may need to book before hand as we were turned away the first night we tried.
