My husband and I were brought to Han Ciragan when we asked our hotel shuttle driver to recommend a good local restaurant. We went with open minds and were blown away by the exceptionally high quality of food, service and ambiance. Olcay, one of the main waiters, was particularly good in his service. He was attentive, without being intrusive and... More

In Han Cirahan we faced with unexpected range of dishes and combination of testes. Excellent turkish food and hospitality combined with european service. Cosy atmosphere and live jazz music. That was one of the best moments we have spent in amazing Cappadocia.

Great setting in an old cave house. Friendly service with space heaters on the terrace. Good food at a fair price in the centre of Urgup.

Great service, good food, not great for the money. Very attractive restaurant, right in the middle of Urgup. A few steps, both down and up.

We had a long debate about whether to go here given the divided reviews but in the end, gave it a go because it looked so nice. It did not disappoint one bit. The service was absolutely lovely, which left me really puzzled about some of the other reviews - it was friendly & attentive, without being intrusive. The food... More

Went there for a meal based on the menu outside which listed a number of fish dishes, when we ordered two of the dishes weren't available so we had only a limited choice. We ordered two mezes and two fish dishes. The mezes while quite large were lacking in flavour and needed spicing up. The same could be said for... More

Found this restaurant in the Michelin 2013 Turkey Green Guide. Very disappointed! Tasteless food.Overcooked meats to the point I could not decide if my dish was lamb or beef. Service was nice however. Nice setting.

This is a spacious restaurant, with open upstairs terrace, with a view and live music. The food is of reasonable quality and price, but the service could be improved (i.e. faster and more efficient)!

Excellent flavoured traditional local fare, superb quality. Highly recommend the Clay Pot Kebab for 2, We shared a bottle of wine, had a couple of drinks, a mezze plate, salad and dessert for less than TKR L 180. The resident guard puppy who lived on the upstairs terrace and sang to the Islamic call to prayer was a special treat... More
