We had a very nice meal indeed here & the service was really attentive...they even moved a big fan to cool me off a bit! My husbands steak was declared delicious, & being next to the beautiful Mosque when the call for prayer came up was atmospheric (even if the couple next to us did roll their eyes! - how... More

We arrived relatively early just as the sun was casting a glow over the nearby beautiful mosque, & the restaurant had a few tables taken, but in a flash it was full, which is justification for the excellent food here. The steak was melt in the mouth, great hot hand... More

Don't be put off, because it's not a roof top restaurant. The food is consistently good, excellent value and great service. The staff go out of their way to please you, nothing is to much trouble, the owner Mustafa is a great host, you won't be disappointed.

The staff from start to finish go out there way to help you. They celebrated my aunty's bday with a cake and fireworks. The food is amazing... I would recommend a steak they are out of this world!! All for a really reasonable price. I go there three times at least every time I visit!! It's a must do xx

Being a frequent visitor to Kalkan, we always visit when we stay. The hospitality, value and wonderful food gets better every year. Word of warning though - make sure you are hungry before you go! Mustafa and his staff are wonderful.

We always look forward visiting the Alternatif and several visits during our stay. If you are looking for a fab steak then look no further. Mustafa the owner always looks after us well and nothing is to much trouble. I can't wait until our next visit to Kalkan.

This was the first restaurant I visited in Kalkan and I thought it was delicious. The flavours in the food were beautiful and the staff were very attentive. The view isn't as good as some restaurants in the area but the restaurant itself is lovely. I would definitely recommend this place.
