We loved the time we spent in old cappadocia cafe and restaurant. The foods they served were great and the ambience was perfect. The people there were very accommodating and were like family. Would love to visit again if given the chance.

Dear Husband and I were visiting Goreme off season and walked by the Old Cappadocia Pancake House. An old woman, aka "Pancake Mama," beckoned us inside for the Turkish crepe called gozleme. We watched her make it in the old Turkish style. She was quite chatty and warm, with limited English. Cheap delicious snack in a friendly atmosphere.

Great Turkish home made food for a good price. Staff is very friendly. And if the weather is good, try a table in the terrace.

Having enjoyed a late pide-dinner at Old Cappadocia, which neither disappoined nor impressed, we were so overwhelmed by the charming gözemle-lady on our way home, that we returned the next night as well. Our second visit we were served by a very lovely young lady (daughter of owner?) and lad, who both were attentive and highly service-minded. In addition, both... More

This place has a good menu, and excellent service. If you need a table to eat, go ahead, but be sure to get the gözleme menu, and note that the most charming little old lady is sitting in the store front next door cooking these delicious Turkish pancakes for you. You may also opt to visit her and order directly,... More

We ran into SALIH AYDINOGLU who has his taxi TEL: 0533 386 37 89 and we were ready for lunch so he drove us into town to his brother's restaurant. Good food, comfortable setting and attentive wait staff. That was the Old Cappadocia Restaurant. Salih waited and when we finished lunch he drove us to the outdoor caves and waited... More

I first came here in 2015 - wonderful food, varied menu items, reasonable prices, and lovely owners. I regretted making a return visit (bringing friends with me, no less!); this time around, the food was so-so (though the sahlep is still reasonably good), the servers were inattentive (took a long time to order food, getting cutleries when we finally managed...
