Reservations need to be made at least a day earlier as they are only 10 tables.
Design from inside is spectacular,you are actually eating in a cave,very neat and clean,little dark,very nice idea for romantic dinner.
A family serves you,they cook and serve you the food.
Taste wise is the best in Goreme,we tried the beef and chicken main course plates.
Service was fast...we enjoyed every single spoon of it :)
We even had a brief explanation for each plate and its historical value specially the famous turkish mezze.
The baklawa with icecream is eye tearing...i almost ordered another plate :)
You must try the experience of eating in the cave .

My husband and I visited Turkey in May and June of 2014. Overall, we were very disappointed in Turkish food; however, our visit to Topdeck changed everything! We had the most amazing, flavourful meal of our entire vacation. Thanks for a great evening!

There are always a lot of people, so you may not find a free sit. Cafe is small, but service is very nice. Meat dishes are very tasty. They have some tables with pillows on the floor to sit. They looks nice but it's very uncomfortable to eat there.

Definitely reserve in advance to avoid disappointment. You can email them directly, or ask your hotel to arrange for you. This was the best meal we had in our 2 weeks in Turkey. The atmosphere was lovely and we felt that they genuinely cared that we had a good experience. We took their advice and ordered the dinner plate sized meze to start with and then we shared the vegetarian main dish, which was plenty of food. Their mezes were amazing. We just told them we were vegetarian and let them pick and we ended up with a great assortment. The fried cheese pastry is a must! For our main we had what I presume is a traditional Anatolian vegetable stir fry with rice. Everything was cooked perfectly and nicely seasoned. We had Raki to start and finished our meal with some local red wine. The total bill was 100TL with tip, which we thought was incredibly reasonable for the quality of food. Yes, the restaurant was full of tourists, but in Goreme this is typical so don't be at all put off by that. The food is very authentic!
