We were a party of four taken here by our tour bus driver, which was very fortunate for us otherwise we would have missed a treat. If you like Turkish food, then you won't find fresher & tastier than this. Highly recommended

Visited for lunch, we had an arranged menu of soup, various starters and slow clay baked beef. The quality and taste was excellent, the sun dried tomatoes had so much flavor. If you visit Cappadocia you should make time for lunch here.

Got taken here by our guide who had arranged this so that we get a taste of authentic home cooked food of the region. It's not really a restaurant as they only take bookings and then prepare the food according to who is coming, so...More
