Tasev Sanat ve Sarapevi

Visitors to Safranbolu now have a bonafide contemporary dining option that delivers on thick steaks and creamy pasta dishes. Service is more aloof than elsewhere in town, but the alluring wall art, multi-purpose exhibition space and extensive wine menu make this a long overdue change from Ottoman-inspired dining.

Kadioglu Sehzade Sofrasi

Reviewed By ItchyFeetBunny - California

I joined a tour group from Taiwan. Since they were our first lunch and dinner experience in Turkey, we didn't really know what to expect. According to Lonely Plant, this place is local’s favorite, but it seems to me more of a tourist groups' meal stop; however, it might be just so during the off-peak season. When we arrive at this restaurant in Safranbolu, it was actually kind of dead. I only saw a couple came in before we left. I didn't think they were locals. I did see few other tables were set up and ready for more tourist groups to come.
While the placemat on the table set my expectation high up, our meal, since was covered by the tour, was an usual 3-course meal: pita bread and soup, main course, and dessert. The pide/pita (more like Lavas - pronounced Lavash) bread came with a sauce bowl of yogurt. The Corbasi (Chorbasi) - lantil soup - was a little to watery and salty - concensus of the entire tour group. However, I do have to say that the Karniyarik (stuffed eggplants with ground beef) tasted really good. It was grilled with tomato and green chili. The green chili actually had some kick to it if you ate the seeds. It's a bit heavy on taste bud if you are a light meal eater, but they do provide a plate of lamb-fat stir-fried pilav/rice. Turkish people don't seem to like plain steamed rice. The dessert is not baklava or anything one would fancy, but a plate of partially oxidized apple and orange slices. That, however, may just be the norm for escorted tour groups' meal deal, I later found. While my food experience there may not speak for a regular solo traveler, this can certainly be a guide for you future escorted tour members.
I forgot to record the price of meals there, but I recall that getting one baklava for dessert is 6 TL
Not much of service experienced, since the menu was preset by the travel agency. However, waiters were friendly enough to answer my questions when I kept on bugging him on finding out the name of that eggplant dish. =)
The restaurant has a beautiful courtyard where you can oversee a nice view of the Safranbolu. I certainly encourage readers to set aside some time to enjoy the view and take some pictures! Walking down the restaurant is fun as well. You will fall in love with this town, just like that.

Bestami Gozleme Evi

Reviewed By Adonis K - Istanbul, Turkey

Safranbolu merkezde çok popüler olmamasına rağmen daha fazla ilgiyi kesinlikle hakeden mütevazı bir aile işletmesi. Çalışanlar güleryüzlü ve canayakın. Porsiyonlar büyük, malzeme bol ve doyurucu. İşletmeciler mekanı pazarlamaya gerek görmediklerinden olsa gerek içerisi tenha ve bir hayli sade, ek olarak oldukça temiz. Fiyatlar da gayet uygun. Gözleme yemek ve açık ayran içmek için Safranbolu'daki belki de en doğru yer.

Pilavsız kuyu kebabının porsiyonu 40 tl ve gelen et çok az. Gelen et de soğuk ve tadı güzel olmayınca verdiğin paraya acıyorsun. Zaten yemeği de tatlı tabağıyla getirmeleri ve bu sunum çok kötü diye uyarınca "bizde böyle "demeleri ayrı komedi.Yemekten sonra ikram verilen baklavada güzel değildi.Para verseydim üzülürdüm

The meal options were limited but our choices were excellent. The Turkish Ravioli and the stuffed grape leaves were delicious. The restaurant is charming with lots of eclectic decorations. And while it looks like it's going to be expensive, the prices were extremely reasonable

Local tastes, delicious. A location owned by a husband & wife team. Very modest but very tasty. Another advantage, this is one of the several places you can find open until 11PM. If the weather is nice, the little garden is pretty cute.
