Restaurant & Our Eco Garden

Traditional Cappadocia Cuisine, Our organic gardens, and Cooking Classes…

At our hotel, we take pride in offering our guests the best preparation of scrumptious yet healthy food our region has to offer. This necessitates home-grown ingredients and home cooking in order to exercise control over the quality of the ingredients and the process of  preparing them. 

As a result, we grow our own fruits and vegetables in our eco-farm located just a short walk away from the hotel, overlooking a valley of fairy chimneys. We use well water for the cleanest irrigation, no pesticides or chemicals. Our guests are welcomed to visit the gardens, pick their own veggies and fruits, and partake in the preparations, if they wish to do so.

Our restaurant food is exclusively supplied from our eco-farm and represents the finest in freshness and quality in home-cooking. What you see and pick at our farm is what you get to eat at our restaurant, prepared lovingly by my mother. 

You can enjoy lunch and/or dinner at our restaurant. We offer a menu of local delicacies representative of the village TANDIR cuisine, including: 

Vegetable and meat casseroles, home-made flatbread, soups, bulgar meals

TANDIR is the local in-ground ovens we use for generations to prepare our foods. Fire is generated by local fruit tree remnants, exclusively apricot, grape, and some other local trees. These are preferred for the aroma and flavor they impart on the cooking, thus nothing even comes close to it when compared to other BBQ techniques, briquettes etc. It is tedious and labor-intensive to prepare and use, however the end result is what everybody ends up talking and raving about, and why we are written about in all the trade magazines with highest acclaim.

Since the TANDIR preparations take several hours to cook, we require early reservations. You can either call us or place your reservations via our web page.

In addition, for those culinarily inclined, we offer CLASSES in local food preparation right on our premises. You can join my mother as she goes through the preparations of our menu and participate and learn how it’s done the authentic way. 

We will be happy to share our family recipes, how to use the ingredients, proper spicing, and cooking techniques with you. You will amaze your friends and family when you get back home and showcase your newly acquired skills. Guaranteed to add a new dimension and depth to your life !




For reservations, please contact us before 6 hours for your lunch or dinner requests.
