Needs reservation. I am not sure if they serve lunch. Also only chef's special available. But amazing food. Great chicken. As far as I know only one type of chicken, lamb and veg dish available per day. Good starters too ( hummus, taziki etc). must visit!!

This is a small authentic restaurant with great ambiance and food. There are about four regular tables and rest are traditional low tables where people would have to sit on the cushions laid on the floor. I had the lamb main course and a soup. Both were delicious!

We had a great Turkish meal here. Prices very reasonable. Best to make reservations as the restaurant isn't very big. Worth going to for sure! We used google map to find this restaurant and we walked there from our hotel.

The place is very cosy, you can even sit down on cushions. We advice the mezze which was really nice. You may want to book in advance.

We ate at this quaint cave restaurant for dinner and had a nice experience. The meze plate was very good, and we enjoyed sampling everything. The real selling point of this restaurant is the ambiance: nestled in a cave of a quiet Goreme street, you walk past the tiny kitchen on the way to the cozy dining room, which has... More
