Such a lovely warm and cosy restaurant in a cave! The food and service is excellent. It's a family run place, parents in the kitchen while the daughters help out with the service in front. Very fresh food and priced reasonably. Go early! Highly recommended if you're in Cappadocia!

I managed to get a 6.30pm dinner reservation for one but as I guiltily knew it was a big waste of a table to just come alone I managed to find another willing dinner partner. We shared a dinner plate Mezze which consisted of 8 small portions and was very tasty especially the aubergine with tomato and Walnut sauce and... More

Great food! We ordered the mixed meze plate and the chicken special, both were delicious! The service was amazing and the staff very friendly. Loved the atmosphere and the opportunity to eat inside a cave!

Booked the restaurant two weeks in advance (just to be safe) as several of my friends recommended it, they also mentioned a signature book for travelers to leave messages in but we weren't offered that so not sure if this is still the case. We opted to sit on the ground to get the whole "traditional eating in cappadocia" experience,... More

This cozy restaurant has a family-home-cooked-meal feel. As you walk in, you pass a small kitchen where you see the cooking happening, and you are led into a cozy dining room with rock walls. Some of the tables are close to the floor with cushions, which gives a fun feel to the restaurant. The mixed meze plate was delicious, and... More

Be sure to book, as this is quite a small restaurant and fills up fast. While the menu is limited, the food is of good quality and the service is very good.

A lovely family run cave restaurant. Only 10 tables and very popular so you have to book. Not a huge choice on the menu but this is an advantage as everything is beautifully cooked. We have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to others.

Very cool vibe in a cave restaurant, family owned. The owner stopped at our table to see if everything was ok. The ambiance was awesome and very romantic although there were people there with groups of friends and they looked as happy as we were to be there. The lamb was soooo good and the mezze was incredible. Definitely order... More

We had one of the best meals of our holiday here, all dishes were wonderfully tasty and aromatic. I didn't know aubergine could taste so good! (in walnuts as part of the meze). Food is traditional, homemade, & simply served. Just the way good Turkish food should be. The restaurant is a small, cosy room within the cave house of... More
