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!

Went on the recommendation of our hotel and after checking with TA. This is a small local restaurant with c8 tables inside and a few more on the pavement. Very decent choice of menu for a small place, all of which one can see being cooked at the back. All dishes - mezes, salads, meat, veggie - excellent. Owner very... More

My husband and I ate at this restaurant 4 times in the 5 days we stayed in Urgup. Not only was the owner delightful and the food excellent and well-priced but while we were there, the owner's young son was helping out. Watching the young man run to help out, clean off the tables so carefully and take care of... More

We had a fantastic experience here. It's a little lunch joint. The gentleman who served us spoke near-perfect English and was able to navigate us through the menu, and make recommendations based on our request to have explictly traditional local Turkish dishes. We tried Keramit and Manti, loved them both. He even coached us on how they're eaten in Turkey... More

While this place appears somewhat nondescript, the food is really delicious, and the service is excellent. A great choice for travelers. Also has good vegetarian options.

The food here was really very tasty. The decor is quite unassuming and the location is right in the central part of Urgup. The Sac Tava was amazing and a must order. Also the Ali Nazik and Kiremit Et was great! Highly recommend this place for excellent food!
