Our group of 5 (five) stopped at this restaurant as part of a tour with Ephesus Shuttle. You never know what kind of food or restaurant you're going to get under these circumstances. So I'm happy to report that we all completely enjoyed our meals here! This small restaurant is located up a steepish hill, and might be tough for people with mobility problems to get up there. But, the views of Sirince are worth every step! Every dish they brought was good, but I especially liked the stuffed squash blossoms! The pita bread was all made by hand and our food was cooked in a traditional wood burning oven...very tasty. We sat and enjoyed our meals with a nice cold beer, while taking in the views of this beautiful little mountain town. Our service was good and fast, and the prices were very reasonable. If you find yourself in Sirince give it a try, you'll be glad you did.

Our hotel heavily recommended this place. Every time we asked for directions to a restaurant, they would say they were not familiar with it and give me a card to this place. It was almost comical. But, based on the decent TripAdvisor reviews, we gave it a try for lunch.

The location is beautiful... Up a hill overlooking the village. But the food was, well, just average. We were obsessed with gözleme (Turkish pancakes) our whole trip and had nearly a dozen of them. The gözleme here were not at the top of the pack, although it is their specialty. The fresh pomegranate juice was delicious, though. It looks like they specialize in juices, so that might be worth trying.

A little bit of rain, slippery slope but well worth it. The pancakes and stuffed squash blossoms were sumptuous. The price very reasonable and the staff extremely attentive and considerate. I was having a little stomach thing and the server very ably steered me away from the spicy and the oily toward very tasty options which showcased the region. Take this hike! It is worth it.

Loved the atmosphere of this place as soon as we took our seats. The view was fantastic of the valley below and lots of colorful rooftops. We ordered tastes of everything and enjoyed the Ephes Beer with our meal. There was an open fireplace where they were cooking the meats...and everything was delicious.
