Food was excellent. We had bread, soup, greek salad, chicken with rice and fries, baklavas with ice cream and tea. One plate of each was enough for the two of us. Although a bit spicy, it was flavorful and very delicious. It was, and by far, our best meal in town. We paid about 40 TL in total. An very good quality/price ratio. Family-run, the father, Mustafa is the chef, the daughter is the ebullient waitress and the mother, the Jane-of-all-trade. As a team, they manage to create a homey ambiance conducive to a pleasant meal. We made reservation to avoid being disappointed since there are only 10 tables. Very enjoyable!

Great service, friendly and beautiful cave setting. Choice of cushions or tables. Fire side eating 'till you can't move. Excellent home cooking and family service. We loved it and WILL return. Good value too.

The food and atmosphere are wonderful, but be sure to make a reservation, as the place is small and often is full. The starters are great. Highly recommend!

We dined at this restaurant on our first night at Goreme after reading the rave reviews, first off the services and hospitality of the owner's family was top notch. The ambiance of the restaurant is nice but nothing extraordinary, especially since we were already staying in a cave hotel.
The food was a big disappointment considered all the rave reviews, the taste was plain and was no better than other restaurants we sampled in the following days. The price is reasonable though.

Amazing food and service! The meze has typical food. It´s run by a family of turkish and south african people. We got the best waitress ever! Lovely
