“good food, engaging service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We ate here our first night in Goreme and had a lovely time. The restaurant has a large front porch, which makes for an enjoyable environment for dinner. Our waiter was quite the showman, much more engaging than most ... friendly, joking, turning the presentation of the local clay pot kebab into a production. Food was better than average for this level of restaurant, ambience was pleasant, service certainly a cut above.

“Great food, neat service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Stopped at this place on the main street (facing the bus station) to taste the ‘’testi kebab’’. We really appreciated all the food we had there (went two times) as well as the neat service: waiters are there if you need them but otherwise they let you alone! No pressure at all (for ex.: no waiter on the side walk to catch you with the common "yes please"). Prices were reasonable for the standing of the place : I would recommend this place to people looking for a nice special diner meal.

“One of the best places to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We ate here on a number of occasions becuase our first experience was really good. The food tastes great, you get freshly baked bread which is nice and soft with your meal, and the service is reasonable. They give you a complimentary dish, I can't remember what it is called but it is made from Couscous. Give it a go, we thought it was nice. I found the clay pot chicken to be the best here.

“Dining at Sedef is a MUST! Incredible food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

After a wonderful hot air balloon flight, my fiance and I had a delicious meal at Sedef with our tour guide. We ordered the clay pot dish- I forget the correct name. The presentation was awesome! They brought out the flaming clay pot, then broke it in half, and served us the steaming food on the inside. It was absolutely delicious.

The service was also excellent. Our waiter was very kind and the owner of the restaurant even came to our table and spoke to us and welcomed us to Turkey. We had a wonderful experience!
