Restaurants in Goreme (Cappadocia, Kapadokya), Turkey?

Any recommendations for good spots for lunch or early dinner? (We'll be traveling with a toddler.) Or yummy treats from local food shops, etc? We will be staying at the Kelebek Suites, so we'll be able to eat at the Kelebek Pension restaurant, but I'm just curious about other options as well. Thanks!

  1. I wish you had given a time frame, but if it's not too late for you, I was a fan of Pide House in Goreme. Hard to really describe to you the location, but Goreme is so small it can't be hard to find. I believe it was on the main street. As the name implies the pides are the main focus, and are excellent. They also have delicious manti. Very friendly staff, I was invited back to the kitchen to make the manti myself, but as I was obviously using their pre-prepared ingredients, I had nothing to do with how good it tasted!

    I stayed in Shoestring Pension, which also has a restaurant...I never ordered lunch or dinner there because they didn't look impressive but the breakfast was quite good, especially the gozleme.

    In general: gozleme, manti, lahmacun and pide are all Anatolian foods so it's good to fill up on this in Goreme!

    1. I recommend "Anatolia Restaurant" in Göreme. According to meThe only fine restaurant in Goreme . Try meze plate and kebaps -lamb shish-.n
