Still one of the best steaks in kalkan

Alternatif is always on out list of restaurants to visit as we have always enjoyed fabulous food and excellent service. This year was no exception. They were 10 of us and service was great. The steaks are still some of the best we have tasted and there seemed to be even more types to choose from... read more

Nice setting in the middle of town. nice friendly staff. They remembered my Fiancés family from the year before resulting in a free meze to share. I had a chicken dish. it was in a creamy mushroom sauce and have to say it was one of the best meals so far of the holiday. Everyone else loved the food also.

We have passed this restaurant many times but never eaten there before. We perused the menu and decided to try it, and we were not disappointed. Tables are nicely spaced to give privacy when dining (unlike some restaurants in Kalkan). Owner and waiters are very attentive to diners needs. Hubby ordered filet steak, which he declared was the best of... More

A delightful restaurant set in a courtyard in the centre of town. We were recommended to this restaurant due to its reputation for steaks and we were not disappointed. The staff are friendly and attentive. A free meze was provided, luckily we did not order a starter, as the steaks were substantial and delicious. Definitely worth a visit.

We had a booking at another restaurant, so popped in here for a drink, which was great. The staff were very friendly, the cocktails very tasty, and the food being delivered to the table next door looked excellent. We should have eaten here as well, instead of Akin's.

Alternatif is a delightful little restaurant with heritage within the local community, when I went I had the Chef's Special Steak and it was the best steak I've ever had. And it wasn't just the steak the mushrooms, peppercorn sauce, onions and even the accommodation provided just made it distinctively the best in kalkan. I cannot wait until I pay... More
