Lil’a is the à la carte restaurant of Museum Hotel, the only Relais & Châteaux hotel in Turkey, bringing the best recipes of Turkish cuisine, along with those special, almost forgotten traditional tastes of Anatolia and Cappadocia, and served with impeccable service to its guests. Situated in the most beautiful and scenic location of Cappadocia, and with its menus enriched by the creative suggestions of Murat Bozok, one of the most famous chefs in Turkey, Lil’a offers the most distinct interpretations of Anatolian cuisine and Cappadocia food culture with the assurance of the world-renowned Relais & Châteaux service quality.

Home to an array of ancient cultures and civilizations, Cappadocia has one of the richest food cultures of Anatolia. Later, the Turks, Greeks, and Armenians, who lived here until the early 20th century, each laid a piece of the foundation for this richness. Besides their interaction in architecture and lifestyle, these diverse cultures also influenced each other in their eating habits and tastes, thus creating a unique food culture. As the only concept hotel located in one of the most special places of the world—Cappadocia—the exclusive Museum Hotel not only offers this distinct food culture but further enhances it with the unique touches of chef Murat Bozok, giving its guests an unforgettable gastronomical experience.
