Yummy dinner

2 friends and I ate dinner here. We were seated on the floor table, a bit awkward when you have long legs....but fun nonetheless. The food was amazing. Large servings, so we shared 1 starter platter, 2 mains, and 2 deserts between the 3 of us. Would highly recommend this place.

I just got back from 3 weeks in Turkey and this meal stands out above the rest. We were staying in Goreme for a few nights, but waited until our last day to stop by. When we showed up at 9am, the owner told us that they were all booked that night, but suggested we pop in around dinnertime anyway.... More

This was the best meal we've had so far in Goreme. The mezes were delicious and the chicken was great too! We had aside (fried flour with grape syrup and walnuts)and rice pudding too. Great value, delicious food, family cooking, great service, what more can you ask for?

By far the best turkish meal we have had during our four week trip through Turkey. Food was so tasty we went back twice! It is a family run restaurant and you feel like you are eating the best home cooked meal ever. They are only open for dinner, are understandably popular, so it pays to make a reservation. A... More

We made our reservation on the day and was able to get a table probably because it's low season. The restaurant is family run and the food tastes homemade and is absolutely delicious. We had a medium plate of meze to share between the two of us. I am not a big fan of cold appetizers however my local friend... More

A must go without doubt. Was a very amazing experience. Food was excellent. Very friendly family and very accommodating. The chef who also happens to be the owner had prepared a perfect dish. Do no forget to try out the lamb chops.

The location is small, so make sure you get a reservation. The ambiance was lovely. The menu is small and changes daily. The waiter made fantastic suggestions for our meal, and we were incredibly happy. The meal was definitely the best we had the whole time we were in Turkey. We were bummed we didn't go back again before we... More

This place is really special. The ambient inside seems always perfect. The place is a cave with turkish traditional decoration. The staff is really warm. They tried to feel everyone as part of this place. I suggest to try it if you want a real turkish dinner experience!

The menu is very simple. You choose which type of meat you'd like or you can opt for the vegetarian option, and the kitchen will prepare according to the dish of the day. The host explained how each option is prepared, so it gives an idea of how much love is given in preparing the meals. Nice ambience in the... More
