It was one of the best restaurant we experienced during our 2+ weeks holiday in Turkey. The service was excellent, the foods were well prepared and served without long time waiting. The ambiance was cozy and traditional, we felt comfortable there evening when there was 5 minutes electricity shut-down. The price was very reasonable.

We loved this restaurant. Everything from the pillows on the floor for sitting to the delicious home cooked Turkish cuisine to the kind and welcoming staff made this restaurant experience one of our most memorable in Cappadocia. Get a sampler plate of their dips and the desserts. We loved getting to try more than one traditional dish.

I have no idea why it is called Topdeck, but getting there did involve a climb. The streets of Goreme are quite steep and Topdeck is rather hidden away in a tiny side street. Luckily there are plenty of street signs to guide customers. The restaurant is hollowed into the bedrock which gives it a wonderful atmosphere. It is not... More

We booked this after reading reviews, had to book 2 nights ahead because they were so busy. Well worth it! The cave setting is great, staff were brilliant (friendly and spoke perfect English) and the food was really delicious.
