“Charming service, good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We ate here on our first night in Göreme, and returned for our remaining 2 nights because the food was so good and the service so friendly, professional and charming. There was no hard-selling at the door and (wisely & probably more effectively) no pressure to go inside. This is a courteous family-owned restaurant, with founder-father keeping an active eye & his 3 sons (plus other staff) running the service. There was a good choice of delicious local food from local sources, freshly cooked and professionally served. Service from the staff was discretely attentive, fast enough that we were not kept waiting, but allowing pleasantly leisurely eating. At our initiative, we had some interesting conversations with one son in particular, but that was our choice and otherwise none of the staff attempted to press uninvited attention. All together, this was a very good experience.

very pleasant atmosphere and a rich menu but the staff speaks little English; the food was a bit blant - a bit of a tourist trap

“Underwhelmed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

A friend had been twice the week before we went. Her first experience was very good bit the second visit was poor. When we went it was nothing special. The meze had no distinctive flavours but the flat bread was ok. The main courses were eminently forgetable. Service on a slow night was equally slow

“Wonderful dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

This family-run restaurant was a joy to discover. It was crowded, which was a good sign, and the service was excellent. The pottery kebab (a kebab done in a stew in a pottery container which is cracked open when it is served to you) was excellent in both beef and lamb. A great evening of dining made all the better by Murat and his family and their excellent staff. Highly recommend this restaurant.

“A Real Cave”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

The venue has a depressionist atmosphere. The service is poor. Don't eat pot kebap. It is full of vegetable rather than meat. The plates are dirty and the music is annoying.
