HUGE portions

Food was good but far too much of it, one meal would serve two people there was that much! Prices good and good service, very accomodating!

Mustapha and his team made us feel very welcome. Best hospitality in Kalkan. So much so that we went back for a second visit (despite there being no shortage of good restaurants in Kalkan). The steaks are excellent, with a great variety of sauces. Mustapha also delivered amazing fish and prawns (already marinaded) for a bbq at our villa. Definitely... More

The steaks in Alternatif are just to die for, so plans were made to visit again before our eldest went home. Steaks all round., delicious. Then For our final... More

We popped in here one night for dessert after we had tea at our villa. The desserts were fine but we felt they were rushing us out a little as we were not having much food! They wanted the table for customers spending more money.

Recommended this old town restaurant by a friend and it did not disappoint. Fillet steaks at great prices. Staff helpful and friendly. Will be returning before the end of our holiday.

We sat here to sketch the mosque and ended up eating a beautiful early dinner. Vegetarian meze starter - very filling and lovely bread; shrimp casserole was very tasty; mushroom casserole was tasty but too cheesy for me. Local rose was good. We were too full to finish and didn't manage to revisit to try a dessert (they looked good!)

We always visit this restaurant at least twice per visit, the hubby always says best steak in Kalkan and Mustafa will always make me something that's not on the menu, nothing is to much trouble. We love this restaurant.

Without doubt THE BEST steak in Kalkan! (Personal recommendation - Steak with blue cheese and prawns!). Great value for money, where in England could you get a fillet steak for £13.25?! The service is without fault, such friendly, energetic and genuinely friendly people! If you get the chance you have to visit!

Great food, great staff, great place. Kalkan is stuffed full of fantastic restaurants and you can't visit them all. But, for anyone visiting the resort the Alternatif is a must, we ate there several times and recommended it to others and we and our friends always had a fantastic meal. The food is great, and the staff treat you like... More
