Great food and great view. Run by very friendly family. Hard to find. Best to take a taxi. We set the satnav for Ortahisar and followed the signs/asked people until we found it. I It was an adventure but we'll worth it.

If you visit Cappadocia and you have a chance to visit this restaurant, don't miss it. There are three reasons that make it a great experience. It is impossible to rank them, therefore my order of listing must be considered random. You will enjoy one of the most spectacular views in the area. You will be receiving meal that rivals home cooking. And you will be served as you would always like to be, with pride and modesty. If we stayed longer I would be dining here every night.

A taxi driver just took us there...it was fabulous...great view and great food. Staff were friendly and helpful. Really lovely meal. Staff then phoned the taxi driver to come and pick us up as we reallydidn't know where we were.

One of the most romantic and beautiful restaurants in Cappodocia. Great food, service, wine, views. I believe that during the day the views are stunning. We ate spiced soups and great veggie/non-veggie food under the stars, to the sound of the mosque call to prayer echoing through the Ortahisar wadi. Our table was on its own on a little terrace overhanging the cliff. Felt like it was just us, the desert and 10 centuries of middle-eastern ghosts.

Recommended by a local taxi driver, Halil. A little hard to find without help, but worth the fare from Goreme, Uchisar, Urghup or anywhere nearby.

We came across this restaurant by accident. We walked into town and sat at a cafe right in the plaza, for a beer. Here we meet Ali a great kid that recommended Tandir Cafe. He even drove us there in his car, people here are great. To our surprise he took us to the most amazing place. Great food, really authentic Turkish place. Super clean, with the most amazing views, It is just the place to visit. Make sure you have enough time to spend here and enjoy a great lunch or dinner. This is a place we will never forget.
Look for Ali in the town plaza, cafe (no name, right in the center of the plaza to the left side)
