I never expected a restaurant in touristy Goreme to be this great. It is the kind of restaurant that I love: straightforward menu and impeccable execution. The hummus and the aubergine with tomato sauce were particularly enjoyable. Great atmosphere too! Must reserve in advance though, since they have few tables.

We saw the great reviews this place had on Trip-advisor and decided to go. Don't believe the hype!! The staff here don't deserve your money. We booked in advance after reading that it gets full every night. We sent an email asking if we could have dinner for two people. Someone responded saying we could choose to eat at either... More

Came here with my wife in June 2015 and it was the best meal we had while in turkey! The food was fantastic the service was great and the cave setting was perfect! Book ahead because it's relatively small and can fill up quite easily.

Came on a recommendation of a friend. We walked in for dinner around 6:30 without reservations but were asked to finish within an hour which wasn't a problem. We had only two dishes: the mixed meze (appetizers) and the chicken boregi (cigarette pastry, like a Mexican taquitos.) Both were very fresh and tasty. The kitchen is small and i think... More

If you are in Goreme , you absolutely need to visit Topdeck for dinner and do not forget to make reservations in advance through their Facebook page else you will be disappointed to not get a table. We are vegetarians and had no reason to complain on options. We had a meze platter and loved every item on it, right... More
