We spent 6 nights in Goreme and ate out every evening. This restaurant was definitely the best in every aspect. It is a short climb from the town centre but well sign posted and the immediate impression is one of cave cosiness and good taste. There are conventional tables and chairs and also cushions and low tables. The menu is... More

Visited twice during our Goreme stay. Bit hard to find but well worth it. Food and wine very reasonably priced and far outshone any other restaurant we visited.

This was recommended by some fellow travelers so I went there - a short less than 5 minute walk from the center and my hotel. I was pleasantly surprised to find a small restaurant set in a cave with both seating styles - on the floor with ample cushions and comfortable seating for people who want to relax and do... More

Food was great. We ate beef dish which has rice in the middle. It was very delicious. But the Goreme traditional desert (Aside) was much more georgeus. I strongly recommend here for people who want to experience a tasteful dinner!

The menu was quite small but offers delicious options, even for vegetarians. The prices were okay and the location looks very authentic. The staff was overly friendly and offered a perfect Service as usual in Turkey. The food was delicious. I had the chicken and it was surely one of the most tender ones I have tasted. I can only...

I read the reviews on trip, and went to the restaurant. The waiter was very nice and polite, the place is cute, and the food is ok. Nothing special that makes it the third restaurant in Goreme. The prices are higher than the rest o the city, another inconvenient. A dinner for 4 was 200 liras (70 dollars), and the... More
