Delicious interpretation of the local cuisine in a magical setting! Friendly and professional service. They made our birthday / anniversary dinner very personal and memorable. I recommend it wholeheartedly. The exceptional food, service, interiors, and ambience made this a magical evening.

Lovely ambiance, but altogether an underwhelming experience with respect to expectations. Delicious ocra soup followed by mediocre mezzes. Main courses pretty bland. Wine list is decent, but do not expect thorough explanations on the local wines. Although the number of waiters practically equaled the nume ed of guests, the service was clumsy and presumably additional training is required. Nice location, perfectly edible meal, but below average with respect to other (considerably cheaper) dining experiences in Turkey and Cappadocia.

The ambiance is very nice and the menu was full of great choices. The first wine we selected was not not present, so we chose another one. Though the restaurant was not full, the service was very poor. The waiter, who was serving our table was continuously busy with the table next to us. We had to serve the wine ourselves all the time. This was ok but in a place where you pay good amount of money for food, ambiance and service, it was disappointing. I would still recommend the restaurant, and accept this poor quality of service as a result of being there on a Sunday.

First impression when we walked in was Wow. Dreamy location and the terrace was out of this world at sunset. Great ambiance inside, great food and service. Also reasonably priced. 5 start overall.

We were not staying at the hotel but booked a week in advance, had cocktails, a bottle of wine, mains (the chicken was exquisite!), desert, digestives and even though we spent good money and were very polite, the waiter was horrible to us. The restaurant was empty but he did not want to give us a table next to the window, put pressure on us to order quickly, poured wine every two minutes filling the glasses to the top and made us feel quite uncomfortable. We spent 16 days in Turkey to celebrate our anniversary and service was incredibly attentive and friendly at all restaurants with the exception of Lil’a. We will never go back

Dear Lucia, It was a pleasure to serve you at Lil'a. But, I am sure there has been a misunderstanding since we are very sure of the quality of our service and staff. For tables by the window; they are reserved for the first requests and this is something out of Lil'a team's control as they have to seat the guests according to their lists and notes. As we are so busy, we do not have a chance to arrange any table by the window at last minute. Best regards. Nimet Gul Ozcas Sales Manager

The views, ambiance and service are unbeatable. The flavors were perfect, though the food was never quite warm enough and the sides were somewhat stale, but this is still an incredible and unforgettable spot.

We book a table under Opentable for 9, without highlighting they don’t accept children below 12.

Once we arrived they informed children are not allowed and only after we asked to speak with the manager they accepted us but only on an inside table at the very last room of the restaurant.

The food was reasonable. Not great. Value for money not the best we had in Cappadocia.

At the end the worst experience we ever had... they took our group by the back exit (employees exit) of the restaurant and didn’t allowed to use the normal exit of the hotel/restaurant. It doesn't make sense at all.

If you have a children policy, I respect, but should be clearly stated upfront on the reservation. It isn’t. If you accepted afterwards the guests at the restaurant, you shouldn’t treat them as you did.

And by the way... there was another table with children bellow 12 when we left the restaurant...

Shame on you!!!

Probably the best food, service & ambiance in the region. Been to other fine dining restaurants next door but they can't compare. A bit more creativity in plating, better English from service would make this the perfect experience. Having people in the pool next to you its also probably not the ideal situation. View over the valley and of the sunset is amazing.
