This is a very atmospheric hotel and could be romantic. It serves local food and looked good. Due to the price (average of 40TL per entree)we didn't stay for dinner.

The view of pigeon valley is lovely, but I didn't have much luck in my entree choice. I had the pottery kebap, which turned out to be bland watery stew with overcooked chunks of beef.

Our tour group had our farewell dinner at a restaurant called Balkon, which served us some of the best food we’d had on the tour and offered a striking view across Cappadocia, with a thunderstorm on the horizon. The staff were practicing for a wedding or engagement party featuring a green laser display projected onto a nearby cliff and reading... More

The view, beautiful, .. the staff.. handsome and super helpful, the location.. was very good.. However, as tourists, what we ate it was good on that day. On the next day, we tried the same food in another place, and the food was way much better than in here.. which means, most probably, this is one of those typical truistic... More

Had dinner at Balkon Restaurant. Found the service and food to be good. Though the prices may be a tad high, but the view of the Pigeon Valley (Guvercinlik Vadisi) is spectacular.

Several aspects of this place merit a 5 rating. The view was spectacular. The service was impeccable and attentive. The meze and borek were excellent. The entrée was good although the chicken could have been cooked a little bit better. A great experience.

Wonderful restaurant with excellent food and service. We stopped here for dinner with our OAT group. Fabulous view of pigeon valley, fairy castles and wonderful sunset. I so enjoyed every aspect of our dinner. The wine, Mezze, borak, and chicken dinner were delicious. I even bought a small packet of the spice mixture used!

Nice restaurant in Uchisar with an awesome view on the valley. The food was good although lamb chops were too much cooked and a bit dry. The atmosphere of the restaurant is a bit poshy... Could be more typically Turkish. Personal driver picked us up at our hotel and drove us back, which was very much appreciated... A bit expensive... More

This was our second visit to this great restaurant. Located right by the stunningly beautiful pigeon valley, this restaurant arguably has the best view of Cappadocia. Once again I ordered celtik kebabi while my wife had testi kebabi. We also had salad, mezzes, and fries. The service was excellent and the food tasted amazing. Will definitely visit again next time... More

We being vegetarians, were a bit concerned if we would get palatable vegetarian food when we were on our visit to Cappadocia. But when we entered this restaurant, the chef there was very accommodating and prepared a nice sumptuous & tasty vegetarian dish along with rice & bread. It was divine and we had a very good view of Pigeon... More
