We ended up eating here several times because it was in our hotel. I normally prefer to explore more, but most of the meals we had at other Goreme-Uchisar area restaurants were not particularly good. I found the food in other areas of Turkey appeals to me more than this area. The dish I liked best was the pottery kebap.... More

The foo is amazing here. I had the lamb shank, and I'm surprised how reasonably priced it was for the quality. The desert menu is a must, I've never seen one like it. Brilliant food, lovely ambience, just perfect

We went there as per a recommendation, the staff was not so friendly, they gave us a table in a closed area and it was too hot because they do not have air conditioners. We relocatedto another area, the food tastes fine, we expected a better taste. The ice cream trio was below averge unlike the waiter's recommendation.

We visited this place as we have been to many relais and châteaux properties in the world. But this was a real let down. Service was slow. The place was empty and the food was average. The drinking water glasses also had a smell to them. Had to go next door to Sira to eat.

I have not much negative to say about this restaurant. The service was amazing, the staff was very helpful and attentive. But seing that the chef has been trained at michelin star restaurants, I was expecting much more from the food. I cannot say that the food was bad, on the contrary. The point is that teh food was ordinary,... More

I consider this restaurant as the best in Cappadocia region. Rates are high but it is worth to try. Very romantic ambiance. Kind staff. Tasty examples of Anatolian cuisine.

The place is nicely decorated, and the waiters are nice but not professional enough for the setting. The food was meagerly poor, and the lamb trio I had was the worst grilled meat that could ever be served. The meat was dry and overcooked. The prices certainly do not reflect the food and it is overly expensive. I will certainly... More
