One of the best meal I had in Turkey. You need reservation but we went at 0630pm without any reservation and they allowed us to dine with them and prepared meal accordingly to our taste. Small family run restaurant and very beautifully managed.

we visited Topdeck restaurant in mid-November while on a 4 day trip to Cappadocia and it was the best meal of the trip. Even during off season, you should ask your hotel to make reservations as the place is small and quite well known due to the excellent TA reviews. It's very conveniently located to the Kelebek Special Cave hotel... More

We found out about this place and were glad we did. Located in a cave at the top of Goreme. Mezze sharing plates and reasonable prices. Very friendly staff. Open woodstove burning while we were there. Reservation recommended.

We were lucky enough to walk in to this wonderful place. the service and food was simply exquisite. We had a chance to enjoy a late night live performance at the end of the service with the chef and staff. It was so much fun in an amazing setting. We just sat back and relax close to the fireplace.

In Goreme go only to recommended eateries. And Topdeck is one of them. They have a different menu each day and all is freshly cooked in this small restaurant. You HAVE to make a reservation. For vegetarians it may have just 1 main course on offer. But whatever they make, it is great!

Charming cave restaurant with wonderful food and service. We had incredibly delicious mushroom soup and chicken borek to start. Then lamb chops and a beef dish. Everything was top notch. High quality ingredients, gorgeous and talented chef, warm and cozy atmosphere. Must reserve ahead of time.
