Description: If you are looking for home-made traditional Anatolian dishes, you are at the right address. Located in the centre of Urgup, Cappadocia, Zeytin Cafe ve Ev Yemekleri (Cafe and Homemade food) serves breakfast, lunch and evening meals. Our menu is made up of a small selection of delicious family recipes prepared daily from fresh seasonal produce. The menu changes every day and there is always a vegetarian dish as well as home-made desserts, soups and salads.Try our home-made manti (Turkish ravioli with a yoghurt sauce), our stuffed vine-leaves, the soup of the day or some of the selection of home-baked desserts. You won't be disappointed!

“Fresh, healthy and delicious - don't miss this one!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2012 via mobile

We didn't read the reviews until after eating here for three nights in a row. Agree with everything said. Best food experience in a month of travelling in Europe and Turkey (on a flash-packer budget). Food is fresh, healthy, yummy. You won't find fancy contemporary decor,  alcohol, or a menu here - just the tasty dishes of the day served by an angel. Wish we could pack Zeytin up in a bag and take it with us on the rest of our trip.

“Experience a real local restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

Zeytine is a small restaurant on the high street of Ürgüp run by a family of parents and two daughters. One of the daughters who could speak English, Fatima, explained that they don't have a menu and that each day has different home-cooked dishes. On her recommendation we had Yaprak Sarmasi, vine leaves stuffed with rice – a large portion of freshly steamed and stuffed vine leaves which made for a great starter. The beef dish of Et Kavurma was delicious – cubed pieces of beef cooked in sumak and cumin, served fairly dry. The Tavuk Kizartma was a chicken dish of shallow fried meat in a light tomato sauce. Both dishes were served with rice and smiles.

This is one the best ways to try home cooked food and experience true Urgup hospitality.

“Fresh and tasty home cooked meals with a dash of conversation and friendliness!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2011

Emine is the real deal....she is utterly and entirely a woman whose motherly nurturing instincts take over in a heart beat. We were so fortunate to have found this little cafe where for 3 days hnd nights in a row, she prepared for us the best meals ever!
Due to it being low season, she literally made what we wanted to eat....and her labor of love showed in every cup of corba, to the delightfully tasty Manti, in those endless cups of tea and in the lively and entertaining conversations we had together at our table.
You cannot go wrong with her food....simple yet delicious that have a touch of home and comfort. Definitely a highlight of our stay at Urgup and a restaurant I would highly recommend to anyone and everyone.
