Our lunch at the Central Cafe in Uchisar was excellent. I had lamb tandir with artichokes while my wife had lamb shish kebap and chips. We also shared a shepherds salad. Our meal was excellent and the waiter very pleasant. Recommended.

We only went for lunch, but having found much of Turkish food delicious but rich, we thoroughly enjoyed our light lunch of seasonal and eggplant salads followed with a sweet bite of baklava. The outdoor seating is shady and provides a calm oasis to enjoy a meal and relax while stray cats settle in under chairs and tables in the... More

Casual-looking outdoor cafe that took us by surprise and served us one of the very best meals we had in Turkey. Definitely get the pepper steak!

The chief himself seems to be trained well in meats. He knows how to cook, and the presentation of the food is extraordinary for such a modest restaurant. I suggest beef sirloin. Cacik was the best I've eaten for such a long time. This place is not particularly cheap, but portions are big and quality is well above over the... More

Nice and cosy Turkish restaurant with an awesome fireplace, very comfortable by chilly evenings. Menu in different languages. We went there 2 times and both times I ate the speciality of the restaurant, the lamb dish with artichokes, very tasty. Very good and generous portions of salads as a starter, 1 for 2 is more than enough. Reasonable prices. Terrasse... More

If you do not know what you'll come across with in this restaurant, you'd probably think that it is a café in the middle of the main square of Uchisar where you can only have tea or coffee. Surprisingly, the chef and the owner Huseyin Bey used to work in Club Med for years as a chef and you could... More

I ordered the lamb with artichokes which is one of their specialties. I thought it was pretty good - nothing to write home about, but no complaints - good country cooking. The outdoor patio is a nice setting. The location is within walking distance of all the Uchisar hotels.

This place looks like a total mess but the quality of food is simply amazing. We ate twice at this restaurant and everything was awesome. The cook knows what he is doing. Don't be frightened by the awfully cheap decoration and trust the food. It's budget friendly as well! Dışarıdan kötü bir çay bahçesine benzemesine rağmen şaşırtıcı derecede kaliteli ve... More

Place came highly recommended by the locals. Nice settings but very slow service. There was only one person taking orders and serving the entire restaurant - it took nearly 40 mins for the food to come - it came in stages so one person finished while the rest waited. And the food was not cooked properly. Would not go back.

The food is not bad but we have paid too much. First the waiter told us to pay way too little. Then he came back and started counting again. Although service is not always included in Turkey, something went quite wrong here. We ended up paying about 20 lira too much. Unfortunatly we found out too late as we already... More
