traditional lamb dish!

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... read 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!

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
