“Amazing food in a beautiful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

The restaurant was a part of our hotel, Sultan Cave Suites and, at the time of check-in, we were advised to reserve well in advance as the restaurant is very highly rated (on tripadvisor) in Goreme and tends to get booked up fairly quickly on most nights. The restaurant also offers a 10% discount for hotel guests.

Having read the reviews on tripadvisor, we decided to book the restaurant for my birthday dinner and were very glad we did! The ambience is absolutely beautiful and perfect for a romantic date/celebration and the food is absolutely divine. The complimentary bread basket was great and we had a stuffed vine leaves starter which was one of the best we’ve tried. For mains, my husband had a mixed grill where the lamb chops, chicken and steak were tender and juicy and perfectly grilled whilst I had a beautifully cooked lamb shank. The food was absolutely spot-on with flavours and I would love to go back simply to try the different dishes on their menu which we didn’t get a chance to sample.

After the mains, my husband asked whether they could arrange for cake to celebrate my birthday as their dessert menu did not list any cake. We were informed that there was no cake, however, our waiter told us to wait and was extremely kind to arrange for and surprise us with a dessert tasting plate (of all the desserts on their menu), complete with candles, and it was complimentary!

We were really touched by this amazing gesture and it was a wonderful way to end a perfect birthday in beautiful Cappadocia!

A real taste of local cuisine in a beautiful old stone mill. Highly recommended both for the service, food and atmosphere of the place.

You can eat delicious food in a good ambiance. Service is fast. Prices are average. You can find both local and international tastes. Also good wine.

“read the rewiew”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Food 3,5 star. Good but nothing of incredible, My 2 star it's only for the place. But I must explain. First of all: you choose to visit cappadocia ok. So, what are you looking for? An occidental restaurant with waiters in livery that serve you drinks when glass is empty and an environment that tries to be chic? Ok, in this case this is the restaurant for you. Instead, if you are looking for some more "rural", "real", "homely", unformal" place it's better the go away. Personally I didn't appreciate: a veiled smile when I didn't order wine but only water, and (because was a really cold evening) the thing that they no offer a blanket immediately (at least at girls) without ask like other guests did. The price is highter than other Goreme's restaurant. Maybe I was unlucky to find an evening unfortunate but this was my experience and it is right to share it.
