The best food you can get in Cappadocia for the usual tourist-restaurant budget. Home made excellent turkish food with over-the-top service, in a beautiful village just a stone throw from Urgup. Highly recommended.

Very pleased to find traditional cappadocia home cooking in this small family run terrace restaurant.

Fresh and delicious. Gracious hosts and extremely attentive service.

Hanimeli is a family owned place and you can tell by the personalized service and small size of this place. We were interested in having something different than we have had elsewhere on our trip. We ordered the stuffed eggplant and were not disappointed. We had not had a half of an eggplant baked, though we had eggplant every other conceivable way in Turkey. We like eggplant and were glad to have it prepared this way with beef on top. It was served with pilaf. I had the rice pudding for dessert and it was good also. Turkish wines are good and very reasonable priced as well. See pictures of our meal.

I came here early in the afternoon and Erhan, the manager, and Nurtin, his talented mom, showed me how to prepare
Yayla Soup: Yogurt rice mint egg oil

Mince meat, onion, tomato stuffed eggplants covered with sliced tomatoes and peppers. Baked together 15 min in oven 260 c. Until tomatoes are soft

Then

Stuffed grape leaves with same stuffing but this time adding sumac as spice.

Then

Ravioli from scratch!

Then some kind of delicious desert.

It was fun. I was the only "student" so it was like I was part of the family!

And so delicious!
