We had a fantastic meal here last year, and returned to celebrate the 9th birthday of one of our party. They remembered us, and they made us so welcome. The birthday girl had rose petals on her table, balloons and fireworks! But in addition to this, the food was spectacular. The steaks are to die for, the best in Kalkan,... More

Fillet steak with pepper sauce. Cooked just as rare as you'd find in a fine French restaurant, but at a cost of only £11. Really, genuinely superb food. Can't beat it.

We visited this restaurant last year and it was our favourite restaurant for steak. This year we returned and the food was just as good. It was my son and his wifes first visit to Kalkan and considering the excellent choice of restaurants we ate here a few times . Although it is not a rooftop restaurant the music and... More

Steak is something I don't eat a lot of....unless I go to Alternatif. They know how to cook it & serve it. Delicious with or without one of their sauces. I have never been disappointed here.

I was last in Kalkan two years ago and Alternatif was my favorite restaurant. Visited this year and it is still as good. Their fillet steaks are amazing, and cut like butter! Highly recommend it.

Everyone kept telling me how good the steaks were so we thought we'd go & try them. Mine didn't even look like a fillet steak, they apologised & offered me another but I'd been put off by that time. My husbands steak wasn't that good either, certainly not what we'd call good fillet. But I'd been put off by that... More

Great welcome. This restaurant was recommended by steak lovers we had met earlier in our holiday. Delicious and extremely tender fillet steak with peppered sauce. Very good service.
