“one not to miss”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We have just come back from an amazing walking holiday on Cappadocia in central Turkey. This wonderful restaurant is in the village of Ayvali near Urgup. This section of our walk started at Kavak and ended up in Mustafapasa. The route took us through fantastic orchards and vineyards and then to this lovely restaurant serving the most delicious Turkish food. Mum did the cooking, the son, very expertly waited at table and dad - well he sat eating grapes! - as men do. Lunch was certainly an experience not to miss and did not break the bank. A welcome stop on a very hot day. Best to book ahead to let them know you are coming.

“A well-kept secret”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

There are no signs indicating the restaurant (which is also a B&B, by the way), but do not get discouraged: you will find an excellent restaurant, with excellent service, the best Anatolian hospitality. Ask your hotel concierge to make a reservation for you.

“Amazing food, service and atmosphere”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

In the village of the incomparable Gamirasu Hotel, this home prepares excellent regional Turkish cuisine. The son is educated in hotel service business. His service is perfect, the food was among the best of all our dining in Turkey. And it was just our party of eight. PERFECT

“Don't miss if you're in Ayvali”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We read about this restaurant online and made a reservation by email before leaving for Turkey. It was one of our loveliest dining experiences of the trip, and the delicious, prix fixe, family style dinner included so many dishes I lost track. Everything was traditional, carefully prepared of fresh ingredients, and the outdoor covered balcony/courtyard was charming. Don't get hung up on the lack of a wine list (the options are "red or white", as in many less-urban locations in Turkey). If you're staying at the Gamirasu Cave Hotel, it's a nice stroll away.

“Delicious food”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We had a pre-booked lunch here as part of a trekking holiday. It was quite a warm day so it was wonderful to arrive for a relaxing meal in the lovely courtyard overlooking the village. All the courses were delicious traditionally cooked dishes; a delightful experience
