We had a fantastic lunch consisting of delicious Turkish mezes and main courses which included calves liver, fried aubergines, fillet steaks and moussaka. Our friends were going home so we treated ourselves to cocktails too which were excellent! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Kalkan.

We visited last year and loved the atmosphere and were not disappointed this year. Mustapha is a great host, good food, especially the steaks and overall a very enjoyable experience.

We had to return to The Alternative F assured of a warm welcome, excellent service and good food. We were not disappointed. Initially we were rushed thorough the complimentary cheese pastry to our starters and we assumed that we wouldn't be able to relax into our evening. Fortunately, things did slow down and the main course only arrived after a... More

We have just returned from 2 weeks in Kalkan and ate here several times. Great food and service. The staff really looked after us and made a real effort to impress. Highly recommended.
