I often eat here, I found Zeytin to be most authentic cuisine in the area, dishes are prepared daily and Ms Emine is very courteous and pleasant every time we visit. Her dishes always made with fresh local produce if you are in Urgup don't miss it..

Discovered this great place (and its great people) while walking on streets of Urgup. Directly went inside. Very well designed, cosy restaurant with a very genial family running it. Mom, who is the one in charge cooks the most of it with her two very helpful and friendly daughters. Had many great food in Turkey before but that was the... More

Fresh and tasty Turkish cousine as if your mother has cooked. Good alternative to standart kebap houses in Urgup. Fast and clean. A little more variety of dishes would be nicer.

We set inside for dinner since it was a little chilly at the time. Upstairs was carved into stone and atmosphere was alright. Grills are generally good but kofte (meatball) was extra good. Salads were fresh, serving did not feel very personal but was on time. Prices are average, wine like 50-90 try, kofte 23 try...

The food was simple but tasty, authentic Turkish fare at its best, just lift the lids, point to what you want and anticipate being served something delicious. Mother chef speaks excellent English and is really concerned if you set something aside

We had a delicious mixed plate (okra, beans, baked aubergine, chicken, rice and cous cous) couldn't have asked for nicer food or people.
