“Delicious food and great atmosphere”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

This was by far the best meal we had in Cappadocia. Everything was delicious. I got the boreks and my companion got lamb chops. The cave atmosphere was charming, and we enjoyed sitting on the floor and lounging on the cushions. The young lady who served us was very helpful and explained everything to us in perfect English.

“Nice Atmosphere, attentive service and good food!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Be sure to make reservations for this place. There are cushions on the floor, so if you want the Ottoman experience, you might request the floor...those places seemed to be popular. It is a small place and, as others have said, it is a family affair. The night we were there, father and daughter were waiting tables. There were two others in the kitchen. But everybody stays busy and pleasant making sure customers are served good food promptly and with a smile. My friend and I weren't real hungry the evening we were there, so we shared an entree, along with a salad and it was plenty for a small appetite. But if you have been out touring all day and come to dinner with a normal appetite, the portions will be just fine.

“Delicious and friendly place.”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

I love a "mom and pop" business. Their young daughter warmed my heart with her earnest, precocious personality, too! The food was lovely, the server was knowledgeable. We were recommended to go, and we were glad we did!

“Top Notch!”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

We ate at this restaurant on our first night in Goreme. Our hotel manager made the reservation for us. We were greeted as soon at we got in. The place feels homey, we cannot complain about the service and the food. Everyone was attentive, made rounds to each table including the chef, explained the dishes on the menu. We ordered the medium plate mezes, enough for two and filling. We also shared the lamb chops and rice. Very tasty. I had the youghurt drink and my friend had wine. We tried the asade(?) for dessert, which was delicious too! I read a so-so review, but for me, this is a highly recommended one. We tried another fancy restaurant tonight which was closer to our hotel, but the food was a lot better at Top Deck. Top Deck, Top Notch, in my book!
