“Spoiled food and bad service -- avoid meze at all costs”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

We ordered the meze plate. 4 of the 6 dishes were off; the hummus was fizzy, as was the yoghurt; the eggplant tasted wrong. Needless to say, we avoided the mayonnaise. We and the Swiss girls at the table beside us sent our meze plates back. The mains were edible but unremarkable. The service was surly and unhelpful, with the food also coming very slowly. All this place has to recommend it is the atmosphere. We hope we don't get sick.

“We eat better on the street!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

The restaurant was recommended by a famous book on traveling , so we went with no hesitation. The starter was good but not better than the restaurant half price next door. My wife's chicken kebab was burned a bit too much and dry. Again on the street they make perfectly juicy kebab for almost nothing. My fish wasn't cooked, only burned, so I returned my plate and I cancelled the order. So we paid what we hate and went for a doner on the street instead. The waiter didn't even come back to ask how we were doing or anyone else. They bring the bill when we ask for it and that's it. Nice decoration , beautiful terasse,perfect for tourists. In turkey, the best place we hate we're the simplest ones.

“Wonderful Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

Definitely more formal than most restaurants in Goreme but the food and service were excellent. It was a tranquil, relaxing dinner in a very elegant setting. Certainly more expensive than a kebap house but well woth it. One of our two best meals in ten days in Turkey. When you have had enough kefta and shish this is the place to go.

The food is good. And service is good as well.
Could have a bit warmer atmosphere.
