“Reasonably priced good dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

The restaurant was never crowded while we were there in March, which surprised us because the food and service is good and the surroundings are romantic. Quiet place, tastefully decorated. We had dinner there 3 nights and were never disappointed. My husband loved the Turkish wedding soup and the wonderful bread dipped in olive oil and herbed salt. We ate everything they suggested and never became ill, which had been an initial concern. The portions are ample.
If you want to sample the area's cuisine, this is a good place to start.

“You'll be very happy you didn't miss this place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

We came here with my husband for a quiet dinner. Hummus was ok. Icli kofte was good. The main dishes are very well portioned and very tasty. Must try the lamb shank. Hunkar begendi is also very good. Meat was really tender in both dishes. The prices are also very reasonable. You can have local wine here also. Try the turasan. You'll also have the chance to view a fairy chimney while you eat.

“One off the finest meal we had in Cappadocıa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

First off this resto is beautiful with its great views and lovely interior. Traditional touches from the area with great seating make this a nice place to have a glass or two of wine with friends. They also have outside are if you feel like going al fresco.

We split a mixed meat dish and it was excellent. Food from this part of Turkey tends to have less fat (aka not as tasty) as places like Istanbul. Still excellent however. We topped it off with a traditional ice cream desert which really hit the spot. The portions were surprisingly large for this part of the world, we were able to split everything and leave sated. This tends to be on the pricy side but it's a meal well worth your money.

“Nice Restaurant in Goreme”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Our hotel recommended Setan to us on our first night in Goreme. We had a very nice dinner -- an assortment of meze for appetizers. I had stuffed squash blossoms, my husband had lamb kebob. Both were excellent. The restaurant is very beautiful, with three or four small rooms, each with a slightly different feel. The service was very good. A bit more expensive than some other restaurants in town, but definitely providing a sophisticated and also romantic dining experience.

“Best restaurant experience in Turkey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

The first night in Cappadocia, we found this restaurant because it was super close to our hotel, Kelebek. We wandered in and was soon seated in a beautiful room overlooking the town. We got the meze sampler and was almost done with it when the waiter came in. With complete calm, he said that he was very sorry, but there was a small kitchen fire so we wouldn't be able to have our entrees. They comped both the appetizer and our wines, but since the sampler was so big and wonderful, we ended up not really being too hungry anyways.

The next day we came back and actually got the entrees. My boyfriend's beef was fantastically tender, and my lamb shank was similarly wonderful. We were also treated to a free dessert sampler. This was a wonderful introduction to Turkey and looking back, it was probably the best meal we had in the country. Both the service and food was impeccable and truly memorable. I have recommended this restaurant to all of my friends.
