By far this was the best meal we had in Goreme and in all of Cappadocia.
The restaurant looks understated from the outside, but once you get in you can feel the warm atmosphere. If you can try to get a seat in the floor tables.
We had the beef dish, made with one of the best meatballs ever!
If you're in Goreme, definitely give it a try. And finish with the Baklava... You won't regret it!

We read good reviews about Topdeck and decided to go and have a look. The wonderful smell from the kitchen and the great menu convinced us to try the mezze. We had no reservation but despite many bookings we managed to get a table. The mezze was simply fantastic and a great introduction to Turkish cuisine - the waiter explained each dish in detail and it was thoroughly enjoyable. We wish we tried more of the food!

We actually heard about this restaurant through other tourists we had met. TripAdvisor also listed it as the #1 restaurant in Goreme and it didn't disappoint. I would have to say what really got me hooked was the fact that it is run by a very nice local family and had only 10 tables. The young waitress was their daughter who spoke very good English and helped us decide what we were going to have by taking us to the kitchen area to see what her dad (the Chef) was making for that evening. I just felt like the staff were really attentive to our needs and made sure we didn't want for anything. Go there and experience it for yourself! I don't think you will be disappointed. Be sure to reserve and remember to bring cash as they don't accept credit cards.

A local Goreme native brought me to this restaurant -- according to her it's one of the best in town, and I would be inclined to agree. As others have noted, it's a cave restaurant carved in the rock, with most of the seating on the floor on cushions. The place is run by the owner, who cooks most of the meals himself (and is very hospitable to the guests). The atmosphere is cozy, the meals are excellent, and the price/quality is a great match. I would come here again.

Hands down the best place to eat in Goreme. The food was sensational. If you are vegetarian (as my girlfriend and I am) you can't go wrong, all messes are vege and there is a vege main.

We were so impressed we ate there two nights in a row.

If the mushroom soup is on the menu you must try it, delicious.

We were disappointed with the other places we ate in Goreme (especially given how much we have enjoyed the rest of our food everywhere else in turkey), so do not equate your time ay other eateries, especially when the cost of a meal at topdeck is on par with the other (very) average eateries in Goreme.
