A very varied menu. We were a party of three, sharing, and we all enjoyed all the mezes and mains we ordered. Good selection of Turkish wines, well-appointed dining areas.

we walk in this restaurant by chance but end up with finding it is the best dinner we had in our 12 days in Turkey. The restaurant is built in a 250 year old yard with great renovations. The food is nicely prepared, we enjoyed the pot dish very much and the salad with special sauces. The local wine is... More

We had tandir soup which was ordinary. Testi kebab was also regular taste just special in terms service, they break the pot in front of you which is full of meat. French fries were hand made but had excessive oil. Humus was OK.

Overall, we were underwhelmed by this restaurant compared with many others in Urgup. The service was less than attentive, maybe due to the noisy and demanding busload of tourists arriving shortly after we did. However, it was encouraging to see locals eating here. The atmosphere of the dining area was similarly less than the impressive reviews had led us to... More

We enjoyed our meal at Han Ciragan - service was friendly and attentive and the upstairs seating area is peaceful and romantic. The food was good, but not great. The lamb marinated in orange was bland and not that special, but the lamb in the skillet with vegetables and some cheese on top was very good.

We had a great meal here. The lamb was very good. My 11 year old son made friends with the restaurant's very friendly cat. We'd eat here again.

Choice of either an open air rooftop or a vine covered garden with a competent jazz pianist. The food was Turkish; specializing in lamb, mezzes and other regional specialties. Staff was solicitous and helpful.

The atmosphere is lovely. We sat downstairs next to the piano player and under a canopy of grapevines. The food was good not great but the staff was very attentive. My husband was not feeling well and by the time his lamb dinner came he was feeling worse. When he didn't eat his lamb the staff inquired and offered more... More

Great authentic Turkish food from the area with quick and friendly service. The atmosphere is laid back and comfortable and the staff is eager to please. There is a nice bar downstairs if the mood strikes and everything we had was delicious.

The service was disappointing for a lovely garden restaurant. We were not very hungry but wanted some local food. After ordering less than anticipated by the staff we were ignored. The tables around us seemed to get all the attention.
