We were disappointed with the poor quality of food in Goreme. For a town with so many tourists, it is a wonder that the food quality is not better, especially in a country with such deep appreciation for cuisine. Having just arrived from istanbul, we expected similar in this town. It certainly seemed to have a lot of restaurants. But they disappointed on the quality front. My Mother's cafe was one of the better options. Food here is better than elsewhere. Although meat dishes all seem rather watery. I would stick to the moussaka (despite having virtually no mince despite the description ) the salads are great as are the aubergine and smashed tomatoes. The bread basket fresh. Our meatballs with chickpeas was a disappointment, very watery, the meatballs tiny and diluted with bulgur wheat, so virtually no meat taste.... And to our amazement, instead if having loads of chickpeas, the dish instead had floating fried chips in there, which in that watery sauce were just soggy. But the staff are really nice, the open deck terrace is refreshing and busy in the evening because of its location and the breeze it gets and it's good ok value.

We went to My Mothers twice - the first time we had the 'assumed' owner or manager swooning over us- we received complimentary salad as per the other tables, a good feed and Turkish tea offered upon departure- The second visit was a completely different experience! No complimentary salad or tea was offered- although we saw other tables receiving it??? The meals were small, and tasteless- the MIXED GRILL was a third the size of what was shown on menu, the staff were rude and we were left hungry so we went across the road to FATBOYS restaurant to eat afterwards !
Very disappointing as now all we think of is our bad experience at My mothers restaurant :(
