“Best dining experience in Turkey.”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

We have been in Turkey for a week. Dining in Istanbul has been rather mediocre, service OK, expensive, food OK, etc.
This place has served up the best dining experience on our trip so far.
The setting is superb, on top of an old building in town (or made to look old?). Nice views of the city of Urgup and the old dwellings in the hills.
The service is professional, low-key, not overly in your face or pushy, right amount of waiter attention time.
The Turkish food excellent.
Wine selection good and reasonably priced.
After a week of mediocre dining in Turkey this place really excelled. Best dining experience so far on our trip.

“Best Dining experience in Urgup”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Ziggy's cafe was a pleasant change from what is generally on offer in Urgup. We enjoyed superb food beautifully presented using fresh local produce. The wine list also includes locally produced wines. Staff are attentive. The premises are tastefully decorated. All in all a very pleasant long lunch. Thank you, we hope to visit again soon

“This restaurant and shop is a MUST!!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

This meal was by far the best I had during my one week stay in Turkey. The food is absolutely incredible!! My husband and I ordered many different dishes and each was more amazing than the next. Definitely high quality food, prepared by a talented chef!! Not only that, but the shop downstairs is not to be missed. Lots of beautiful, unique, and handmade items. Not only was this a memorable meal, but a memorable night as well. My husband and I spent a long time talking to Selim, who owns Ziggy's along with his wife. We had an amazing conversation and felt an instant connection with him. Selim, I do hope to read your biography some day; remembering your stories still brings a smile to my face. Thanks for all the wisdom you shared with us. :)

“Best meal in Cappadocia!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We ate at five places during our recent stay. Ziggy's was the best of the bunch.

Fun, lively atmosphere...Super-fresh herbs and ingredients...And a menu that isn't just a carbon-copy of what everyone else is serving. We loved all of that.

They accommodated us without a reservation, and the owner was happy to spend time chatting and talking to us about the menu and the ingredients. We loved it.
