We went to Mustafa's place last night (October 17) and as other reviewers have said the simple food cooked by Mustafa was delicious. Now he is a real character for sure and told us he had operated the restaurant for eight years but will be closing in two weeks time. He explained that he always closes during the winter but...

Mustafa is a friendly host who prepares a good range of Turkish staple fare. The menu covers a wide range of local specialties, prepared to order with fresh ingredients. We dined here three times and enjoyed a tasty vegetarian lunch, a kebab dinner and Mustafa's speciality-a delicious lamb dish cooked in a clay pot over hot coals.Also included with this... More

Mustafa's a great guy, both as a host and a chef. His dishes are simple and reasonably priced, cooked fresh and well balanced (lentil soup with chili, garlic & lemon dressing the best we've had to date) and he's great to chat to to boot - go if you're after something casual, filling, in a great location & won't break...

We had a really nice meal here after viewing the sunset from Uchisar Castle. Really tasty food with good sized portions, we also had a lovely bottle of local wine. Very reasonably priced.

Do not judge a book by its cover, or, in this case, do. Unpretentious often wins out and this is a prime example. Mustafa is passionate about his cooking and single-handedly russled up what was our best meal in Uchisar. With a bottle of local wine to accompany our meal and an unexpectedly interesting people watching location on the town... More

This place looks really modest from outside, but the food is completely great and fresh. The owner is really nice and friendly too. It was one of my best experiences in Capadoccia. Specially if you compare it with "faciest" and mores expensive restaurants which the food is not that good. Thank you Mustafa for the food.

I stopped in the piazza in Uchisar to charge my computer battery. I was on my way to Goreme and had forgotten the name of my hotel and needed to check the booking on my computer. It was about 2pm and I saw this little unpretensious restuarant and decided to kill three birds with one stone - computer - beer... More

Mustafa is a great host notwithstanding the fact that his English is limited. We had no problem in ordering and got great food for a reasonable price. We ate outside with a view of the square and had regular (but polite) visits from sundry dogs and cats. Recommended.
