Where to eat
We’d read that guesthouses have the best food in Pamukkale – not the restaurants.
But we tried the restaurants anyway. And after two disastrous meals, we stuck to eating at Mustafa’s Guesthouse Restaurant.
The stuffed peppers were a favourite of ours and we ate them once, twice, three times?
