So cosy, like a snug hollowed out cave with an open fire. Fabulous formula menu with meze; choice of main course, dessert, coffees and soft drinks included for very little money. Delicious, charming family run restaurant;

All i can say is, this is a must visit restaurant when you are coming to Goreme. A lovely place up in the hill and inside a cave. Yes, a cave! Cappadocia is famous for it’s cave hotel. If you want to feel how it feels like to eat in a cave restaurant, Topdeck is a right place to go.... More

Great food in a lovely cave setting. The portion sizes are more generous than in most other local restaurants. That said, two of us had the medium sized Meze, two main dishes, a fruit platter and a rice pudding dessert and that worked out just right. The wait staff speaks excellent English. TL100 for 2.

Super fresh ingredients, lovely staff and cute little cave atmosphere with cushions everywhere. Very traditional. We adored all the food brought out to us and it was really quite cheap! Be sure to book in advance because they have only 10 tables!

Food was so delicious that we had to go back again the second night. Service was perfect, very attentive and caring (just like eating at home with a big family in a cave setting). Must orders: Lamb dish and the mezze were definitely some of the best we ever ate – home-cooked style, authentic and flavorful. Limited seats so you... More
