“Amazing place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

We booked this after reading reviews, had to book 2 nights ahead because they were so busy. Well worth it! The cave setting is great, staff were brilliant (friendly and spoke perfect English) and the food was really delicious.

“Home cooked seasonal food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

The food was home cooked, seasonal , fresh classic take on Anatolian cuisine . Love they have so many vegetarian options and mezzes. It is family run and small restaurant in a cave with about 10 tables . Beautiful cave style decors and good food recommendations . Do make a reservation if going for dinner since they are always full

“Our favorite meal in Turkey!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Managed to get a reservation at the last minute as someone had just cancelled: lucky us! Mixed mezze platter had lots of good flavors. Chef/owner was personable and helpful with menu choices. Food was awesome, as was baklava with icecream!

“Food cooked with care and passion. Excellent value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Context: Goreme is packed with mediocre to poor quality restaurants which offer poor value for money. Top Deck is the best quality/value in the area. Its not michelin star food, but very tasty, well prepared meals. The chef obviously cares about what he serves.
The service is excellent and the prices very reasonable. You could easily pay a lot more elsewhere and come away feeling ripped off.
You must book in advance. Make sure you visit!
