“Amazing!”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

We went to Pumpkin Goreme on our second night in Goreme, having seen the good reviews on Tripadvisor. Our high expectations were actually exceeded! We were able to get a table going a bit earlier in the night, but we noticed as the night went on people needed to have a reservation - I'd recommend making a reservation just so you don't miss out!

The atmosphere in the restaurant is lovely, decorated with some lovely pieces of art made by Ozi. He also made sure we were very welcome and looked after while we dined and was all round a nice fella. Now for the food - it was incredible. Both my boyfriend and I were gobsmacked at times because it was so delicious... in fact we both ate far more than our stomachs should have allowed because we didn't want it to go to waste! We had a four course meal (soup, meze starter plate, main and dessert), including bread and a bottle of water, for 40 TL which was amazingly good value. The meze plate in particular was delicious and a fabulous way to try a few Turkish dishes at once. If you have a night in Goreme, definitely check this place out! We left feeling exceptionally chuffed and pleased with our decision to eat there.

“Good price/quantity ratio”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

Going to the #1 restaurant in Göreme, our expectations were very high. But sadly not satisfied.

Although the people are very nice and you get very good value for money, the food itself is not more than slightly above average.

“Excellent new restaurant !”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

I have lived in Turkey for over 25 yrs so it takes me a bit to be surprised by good food but this wonderful 4 course set menu was so fresh and beautifully presented that I was really impressed. Portions sizes were great and the selection changes daily but it was not only the variety of the dishes but the authenticity of the taste that set their dishes apart from so many others I have had in restaurants locally. The restuarant is small and very cute with a gentle ambience and quieter than those directly on the main street. The service was excellent and I am sure this new addition to the Goreme restaurant scene will be a huge success.

“Perfect meal and experience”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We had our last meal in Turkey at the Pumpkin and it was a fitting end to a great trip. The fixed price four course meal was exceptional. When we showed up and asked for a table outdoors, Ozie, the owner, offered to set up an additional table. The service was impeccable and Ozie was a gracious host. He told us the menu changes daily depending on what "looks good" at the markets. Having had a number of great meals during our two week trip we three agreed that we had our best meal at Pumpkin and was priced very reasonably. It is not to be missed.

“Favourite meal in Turkey!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

We had such a lovely dinner here and Oguz fed us so well! We left the restaurant with huge tummies and smiles on our faces. The bread and olive oil mix (with mint and vinegar) went perfectly well together; the chicken dish was really tasty as well. Oguz served us an amazing appetiser plate with all the yummy Mediterranean food. We were certainly in for a treat! Had one of the best Baklava in turkey, here. Most of all, Oguz really took care to speak to every customer and made sure they feel at home. A trip to this restaurant is highly recommended. Thank you Oguz and your staff!
