Mevlevi Sofrasi

Price range: $25 - $100
Restaurant details
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Just after settling into the Dervish Hotel, our group took a 2-minute walk to the Sofrasi. The terrace directly faces the turquoise minarets of the Mevlana Museum, which took my breath away. We are there, as a group and a couple, several times. The food is fairly routine for Konya, but the atmosphere is pleasant and the service fine (slower with 20 of us, naturally). We were there in winter, but it would be amazing to dine out on the terrace facing Mevlana. I would especially recommend the soups (yogurt and okra), which were delicious.

You can have average Konya cuisine in this restaurant. We had lunch there and their dried okra soup was wonderful. You can also try 'Etli Ekmek' in this place.

Things must have changed since these other reviewers were here. We liked it to much that we went three nights.

The most expensive thing on the menu was 14 TL for mixed grill and the night we had entree, salad, beverage, 2 desserts, and coffee the bill was 62 TL (about $35 USD).

WE loved the food but equally special is that it is right over the rose garden of the Mevlana Museum. We sat side by side facing the museum from the restaurant terrace.

Our waiter for all three nights, Osgar - did not speak English but this became a joke. HE tried and we tried with our phrase book . Menu had English descriptions and pictures. I will be uploading many pictures of the view and the garden.

The restaurant is behind the Museum but a short distance from our hotel. I didn't see another restaurant in the area that offered the prices, ambience, and VIEW of the Mevlevi Sofrasi!

During Ramadan, do not go there. If you are not muslim, you can not make a reservation, will not get a nice seat and if you get a seat, the service and the menu are strictly limited (no starters, no deserts, only some "tourist fast food". Never mind if all tables next to you get phantastic food - only for muslim people.

Friendly service, excellent food, great value and fantastic location – on a roof top overlooking the Mevlana Museum (on its North side). No alcohol – this is the norm in Konya.
