Was sent here by the hotel staff. What a great recommendation. The variety of the menu allowed everyone in our group to find something they wanted. Everyone enjoyed their meal.....so much so, that we ate here again the next day. This was the only place we ate more than one meal our entire 19 days in Asia/Europe. Owners Volkan and... More

This was a recommendation from our hotel front desk clerk, and did not disappoint! My mom and I ate there all 3 nights in Ürgüp. The owner of the restaurant is also the waiter and server. He has a booklet of pictures of what is on the menu. He gave us some good info on Turkish culture and food. Unfortunately,... More

Volkan Zengín and Mustafa Çaliskan will ensure your dietary needs are met when you visit this small traditional Turkish restaurant in the heart of Ürgüp. They will present you with a menu in addition to a binder of photographs of each delicious dish and are extremely accommodating with substitutions and additions. I visited them for dinner 2 evenings in a... More

We were a bit hesitant to go to the restaurant as it was empty. The owner though took the time to explain every dish on the menu. He even had pictures. You know how the pictures always look better than the food? Not this time, the food looked and tasted wonderful! Great portions and served with Mezzas. I had a... More

a family run small restaurant, with great service and excellent food! We ordered the lentil soup for starters followed by a mixed grill and turkish special with meat. All the dishes had an array of barbeque and traditional flavours, the food was fresh and hot!

The taste of the food was beyond our expectations, we were a group of 4 and were vegetarians and the owner was kind enough to explain the options and prepared for us separately a dish that was not in the menu, and also made fresh veggie gozlemes. This restaurant was recommended by our hotel manager. The restaurant is small to... More

This restaurant was beyond our expectations. The food was awesome, I simply can put in words how good it was. It is a simple local with the most helpful couple attending. While the wife cooks, he is in charge of waitering. The service is great and the food is excellent as well. We totally recommend it.

We ate here as a group of 5 and ordered 7 different dishes between us to share. Every single one was very good. It was a bit too much food for us, but the prices were low enough that we didn't mind at all. The staff spoke almost no English but were very friendly, and we were able to piece... More

We were recommended to eat here by our hotel receptionist. The restaurant offers delicious Turkish food. We liked their service and food so much that we had dinner for 3 consecutive evening. I would not hesitate to return here.
