Definitely visit while in Urgup. The pottery kebab is a must have. The owner even picked us up and dropped us off at the hotel we were staying (courtyard cave) free of charge! Couldn't ask for better service.

Cheap, decent food. Grabbed a few things takeaway, couldn't get their specialties unfortunately as they are a bit complicated for takeaway. Good honest Turkish food. Go here if you're on a budget and want some good food. Liked the guy there too, not too pushy,

While on a day trip from Konya to Goreme in Turkey's Kapadokya area, my friend and I drove through Urgup around dinner time. While walking around town looking for a place to have dinner and a beverage, Volkan ZENGIN, SOFRA Restaurant proprietor, approached us and convinced us to have dinner at his establishment. Each of us tried the Sofra dish.... More

We hired a scooter for 75 lira for the day from goreme and drove around the traditional Red Tour route ourselves. On stopping at Urgup we found Sofra which has to be the best Turkish meal we've had so far. Coupled with the fantastic service this restaurant is a must do if you are in the area. Owner speaks great... More

This is where I was first introduced to sach tava - a taste never experienced before! When thinking of Turkey, people think kebab but their more regional and local dishes are much more flavorful and interesting. I also had pottery stew and it was great too. The owner even helped us to take photos while breaking the pottery jar. :)... More

Our first meal in Capadoccia. This was definitely a good entry level experience for first timers to this beautiful part of the country. Kudos to Volkan, as he made ordering less painful. They have a picture menu which also helps. The food was very, very tasty.. You don't tend to order more than what you can actually finish. The servings... More

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
