“Splendid view and excellent food!”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

This is my best restaurant experience in Turkey to this day and they have been many. Truly amazing view from the dining room (the gorge is lit at night). Table cloth and linen napkin, lovely service by the lady owner.

Fabulous Turkish cuisine with all the trimmings at reasonable prices and a nice selection of wines.
This is really a must if you go to Cappadocia (Ortahisar).

“great home cooking in a family -run restaurant”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

We ate here most nights during our stay in Ortahisar,and it was delightful.Excellent food,prepared using herbs and vegetables grown just outside the door of the restaurant by a charming family.We were told it was typical Turkish cuisine,and several people told us nostalgically that it reminded them of their mother's cooking.The view is indeed beautiful and the service was perfect.

“Great food and view”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

Quiet restaurant with great food, reasonable prices and an absolutely amazing view. I love bread (way too much), and this was the best we had in all of Turkey.

“Extraordinary”
Reviewed 26 June 2013 via mobile

Great food and great view. Run by very friendly family. Hard to find. Best to take a taxi. We set the satnav for Ortahisar and followed the signs/asked people until we found it. I It was an adventure but we'll worth it.

“A dream restaurant”
Reviewed 20 May 2013 via mobile

If you visit Cappadocia and you have a chance to visit this restaurant, don't miss it. There are three reasons that make it a great experience. It is impossible to rank them, therefore my order of listing must be considered random. You will enjoy one of the most spectacular views in the area. You will be receiving meal that rivals home cooking. And you will be served as you would always like to be, with pride and modesty. If we stayed longer I would be dining here every night.
