Lil'a, the à la carte restaurant of Museum Hotel, is the only Relais & Châteaux hotel in Turkey. Lil’a offers the best examples of Turkish cuisine, including those special, almost-forgotten flavors of Anatolia as well as traditional flavors unique to Cappadocia. Creating distinguished cuisine with exquisite service, Lil'a is also unique in its location and its stunning views, offering the most special flavors of Anatolian cuisine and Cappadocian food culture befitting the world-famous Relais & Châteaux brand.


Home to many different cultures and civilizations for centuries, Cappadocia boasts one of the richest food cultures in Anatolia.
Turks, Rhums (Orthodox Turks), and Armenians lived together in Cappadocia for hundreds of years and formed the cornerstones of this diversity, influencing each other in areas such as architecture and lifestyle, as well as food and flavors, and a rare food culture emerged.
At Museum Hotel, the only concept hotel in Cappadocia, one of the most special regions of the world, we offer our guests an unforgettable gastronomic experience by further developing this rare food culture with the unique touches of Chef Saygın Sesli.


At a relatively young age, he worked as a chef for big-resort à la carte restaurants in Antalya. As result of his interest in working with Anatolian cuisine, he was invited to Cappadocia, where he has continued his dream and passion to work with Cappadocian and Anatolian cuisine. Taking over the kitchen of Museum Hotel, Turkey’s only Relais & Châteaux hotel, in 2018, Chef Saygın enriches and interprets the almost-forgotten flavors of Anatolia and Cappadocia, blending unique natural products from Museum Hotel’s organic gardens and local village markets.
