Gluten free in Göreme

We booked two days ahead to get a table here and it was worth the wait. A tasty mezze platter, followed by mouth-watering chicken and lamb main dishes. What's more, if you suffer from coeliac disease (gluten intolerance) like me, the staff will recommend dishes to suit. This place leaves Göreme's... read more

We had a 20 days trip in Turkey and in this restaurant of Goreme we found the best food. We loved expecially the starters.

Highy recommend on Lonely Planet and by locals and it lived up to all the hype. Great food, ambience, service and not overly expensive. Although I love lamb shanks, and it had been beautifully baked in the oven, the highlight was the vegetarian dish, full of flavor and depth. At the end of our meal, Mustafa, the owner and chef,...

I am struggling with the food in Turkey A lot of the reviews say food is amazing-its ok but I don't think its as good as I would make at home-arrogant maybe but true. The reviews are taking in views, settings etc plus the food and I think rating them higher than they should be This place is a lovely... More

We had dinner at Topdeck on our last night in Goreme after reading the positive trip advisor comments. We were not disappointed, the food and service were excellent, definitely one of the best dinning experience in Goreme.

We came here based on recommendations from friends and it was definitely in our top restaurants from our entire trip to Turkey. We had a medium meze to start, two mains and that was filling enough but we enjoyed it so much we had to make room for dessert. I definitely would recommend the chicken main dish. I thought it...

Topdeck was one of the highlights of our trip to Goreme. It's in a unique, intimate setting and run by a family who specializes in creating delicious, gourmet Turkish cuisine with the finest ingredients. The prices were very reasonable. You MUST make reservations as this restaurant has limited seating.
