Best Pottery Kebab :)

It is a simple restaurant with real Turkish Hospitality. They explain the menu, and serve with passion. Tried the best Pottery Kebab here, it is serve hot and you will have the chance to 'break' the earthen pot, and smell the flavour of turkish spices before you dip your bread to taste the gravy... read more

It was so good we ate here two of the three nights we spent in Urgup. My husband fell in love with the sautéed liver. I had lamb on aubergine purée with garlic yoghurt and chicken shish. Each night we were also given a delicious salad bread and tea and coffee. Volkan, the owner, speaks good English and is a... More

This small family restaurant has friendly people and great food. We had the lamb kebabs and the beef, which both came with rice and salad. This is Good regional food, fresh and well cooked. Recommend this place, and the couple we were with had returned for more!

The pictures of the wok like dish - please order! You can choose another meat if you don't like lamb. It was so good we ordered another one after we cleared it off in less than 5 minutes. We were hungry after a long day, waking up to depart at 5:30am for the hot air balloon ride. The restaurant looks... More

We ate here on the recommendation of a local and found it lived up to its promise of delicious traditional home cooking. On the night we went there were no other tourists but several tables of locals, including a family, some workers finishing for the day or having a dinner break and some other business people. Volkan the owner was... More

Fire of us stopped in for a late lunch on the recommendation of our hotel manager at the Urgup Inn Cave Hotel. It's a small place on a mainshopping street with a menu with 2 parts, Cappadocian and Anatolian. The owner greeted us and explained the menu. We all opted for the Anatolian pottery special of the house where you... More

We noticed the Sofra restaurant when visiting Urgup for the day and decided to eat there as it had a Turkish menu and looked clean and pleasant. The service was friendly on entry and the meals available and prices were given at our request before we were seated. We shared two sauce meals (meze and kebabs are also available) and... More

We selected Sofra Restaurant for dinner after getting recommendations from several local people when we stayed at Dedeli Konak Cave Hotel in Urgup, Turkey during the Cappadocia portion of our tour in December 2014. The restaurant was a short, safe & pleasant 5-10 walk from our hotel. Food was very inexpensive, fresh & delicious & service was great! Highly recommended!
