Nice traditional Turkish food, especially delicious pancakes. Watch the ladies cook the pancakes in the back! Very friendly and a gorgeous view over the valley.

For lunch, we drove to Șirince Köyȕ, a hillside town that was clearly a popular spot for a Sunday with the family for Turks. Shops selling handmade lace, small glazed pots and bowls, tiles and other inexpensive souvenirs lined the winding lanes. Our guide had made reservations for us at the Ocakbaʂi, a restaurant two-thirds of the way up a... More

I found this place after walking all around Sirince. It's on the hill overlooking shops and and restaurants. with of course the cute mosque doing call to worship at 2pm. Ibo, the manager and server were very nice and the food was great. They have English translation for every dish and beer and Raki of course. I had the stuffed... More

Walked in with reasonable expectations, the tables were nicely set and location seemed good. Worked off set menu (no choice as with a large group). Wasn't to my taste. Starter portions were plentiful although average. Mains slight improvement. Service was very good. Food delivered quickly.

We enjoyed our long lunch here during our stay in Sirince. The mezes were great, the beer cold, the prices reasonable. It has a good view of the little town and the staff are very accommodating. We'd return again.

We had 5 appetizers (the pancakes are excellent), a glass of wine and a large beer. 53 TL ($23 including tip.) There’s a view of the whole valley. We were the only guests that night and yet we had to hunt down our waiter to get the last course and our bill. Try other places.

Nice view, good people and most importantly delicious food! The gözleme are very nice (put some eggplant in it) and there were a couple of different meze that were surprisingly tasty. World Cup games were upstairs which made our day. Just overall what we were looking for. Definitely one of the best.

My actual rating is above average, but I'd make it 3.5 stars. This is a friendly local restaurant that offers good, but not great food, at a very reasonable price. It is perched at the top of Sirince and offers good views from its outdoor balcony. The lamb chops were quite nice, and the salad very fresh. In all honesty... More
