Description: In the heart of Cappadocia, and probably in one of the most interesting natures of the world where cultures and civilizations are mingled, the A’la Turca restaurant is established in 2003 in order to represent and showcase the anatolian food in the world through the touristic activity in Cappadocia. Therefore we made the difference in our cuisine concept compared to the restaurants of the region. And now, in 2013, we pushed over the limits of our menu to encompass the whole traditional turkish food, revisited by our Chef.

“Quality restaurant amongst the claypot and kebab cafes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

After a couple of days in Istanbul, where we didn't find anything that particularly impressed us food-wise, we were pleasanty surprised by the meal we enjoyed at A'laturca in Goreme. The service was great, very friendly, and they were happy to explain the dishes to us. The set menu looked delicious, but a bit too much for what we wanted, so ordered a la carte, and weren't disappointed. We started with a simple selection of bread with olive oil, za'tar and tomato spread, all very fresh and tasty. We then had the chicken with almond cream sauce (came with rice, fried potato (nice and crunchy, not soggy!), and julienned mixed veggies; a dish we can't recall the name of, but was grilled strips of veal on a bed of fried julienne potato with a yoghurt sauce (a local speciality); desserts consisted of the "chicken breast pudding" and a sweet pumpkin in syrup dish - everything was delicious! We also enjoyed our glasses of wine - these were decidely better than we'd had elsewhere locally (and they don't skimp on glass size!). Overall, the prices can look expensive initially compared to other local restaurants, but the quality and quantity of food and drink actually make this a good value option for those looking or something more than just a local cafe.

“Food was better than most in the area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

We weren't blown away by the food in Goreme. It was our favorite area in Turkey but the food was average. The best part of the restaurant was the service. It was a friend's birthday and they arranged for a beautiful cake to be brought to the table. Everyone we interacted with was very nice and helpful.

“Terrific local flavors!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

Had a fantastic late lunch at this lovely restaurant and one of best during a 3 week tour. Enjoyed the Kayseri Mantisi, a light traditional ravioli dish along with some of our guide's Albanian styled fried lambs liver. Both were new to my palate and deeeliscious!! Wish we could have stayed for dinner!
Staff was extremely attentive and friendly. Restaurant was restrained elegance. Dine on the upstair's terrace.

“Wonderful food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

We had an excellent lunch here-a chicken almond dish and the freshest prettest salad ever received in any restaurant. The Cappadocian wine was supurb, the service was friendly and the outdoor patio we dined in was lovely.

“Best of the best in Goreme!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

We were 4 people. All of us became incredible pleased. The place is legendary. Best restaurant in Goreme. Service is excellent. Desserts (especially ice cream is amazing) are very delicious. The owner of restaurant (Mr. Tayyar) are very interested in quality and satisfaction of customers. I highly recommend this restaurant. While we are on the road to Ankara, we are still remembering the tastes in our minds.
