“Excelent place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

Great food, even better service. We were staying at the Tafoni Evleri Cave Hotel, a 8 min drive from the restaurant so they arranged to pick us up and bring us back once we where done. We had some nice local wine and a great dinner while we enjoyed a nice view.
Would definitively go back again.

“Pleasant respite, good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

Easy walk around the corner from our hotel. Beautiful view over the splendid landscape - cool, fresh air, circling swallows. Good service. A lively evening, especially when a noisy group of Finns and Russians finished their meal and left!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

I am from Turkey and travel a lot. I can say one of the top 5 restaurants i have ever been in Turkey.
We went there two families and with two little kids. We asked if they have Turkish traditional dining table.(sitting on cushions and eating on a low table) they offered a cave. Kids were playing and shouting and we were so relaxed as there was no one to disturb.
They brought olives, pickles, eggplant salad as starter, homemade wine. Pickles and eggplant salad was perfect that we asked for more.
I asked for "kuzu incik" lamb shanks cooked in oven (tandir). Excellent taste.
Price was about 60 lira per person which is descent for such taste.
You can not have that taste in istanbul for even double price.

“We came back several times”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

Good food. Try the little Turkish lamb raviolis. One of my best meals in Turkey. Nice local wines. This is just a short walk from the hotel where we stayed, The Hezen Cave Hotel.

Thank you to Mustafa for the best service!!

The food was amazing! Everything is home made, so natural and succulent! Do not come back from the area without going to Tandir Cafe.

Enjoy the view and the amazing food accompanied with amazing service!
