Its not easy to be vegetarian in turkey. Its full of meat everywhere... We went to this place because of the reviews on tripadvisor. What a surprise!!! The place is small but charming. The staff was really nice and our meze (we asked for the biggest one) was super good and tasty. Twelve different kinds of vegetarian appetizer for the... More

We loved the food and ambiance at this family run restaurant. It is very small so you must get reservations, but it's worth it! We ordered a salad to share and then two mains, lamb and chicken dishes-both very tender. They came with rice and it was just the right amount of food. It was one of the best meals... More

Wonderful dinner with great recommendations from attentive waiter - able to taste many appetizers and then share a salad, a delicious lamb dish and a rice pudding. Great atmosphere and both table and floor/cushion dining!

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Topdeck. It's a cozy, comfortable and very welcoming restaurant. Family run - parents in the kitchen and daughters on the floor. The food was amazing! We had the medium mezze plate which was a great start. I ordered the vegetarian main and my partner the beef. The vegetarian casserole-like main was amazing!!! Definitely the... More

A friend recommended this restaurant so we set off to find it, to book for the following night. After a few wrong turns we found it and returned into the centre of town a different way which was easy to follow the next night. Walk past the big fairy chimney, the Mosque and the row of carpet shops and it... More

I'd recommend making a reservation. The food here is delicious, different to the usual turkish food you'd order. Small menu, but quality options. We ordered the the aubergine starter - delicious, the lamb main - very homely dish and tasty. A little on the pricey side, but worth trying out. The restaurant is in a cave, so keeping with the...

‎You need to book this restaurant, and the ‎extra planning is definitely worth it. We booked a table for 5 and were greeted with open arms practically by the family that runs it, as you pass the kitchen to the table, so it has a very personal feel. The ambiance is lovely, it is a cave with subtle lighting and nice... More
