We came here after hearing good things and were not disappointed. The service is spot on and we were very well looked after. Alternatif also seems like a great place to come for a celebration; there was a 50th wedding anniversairy when we were there and the restaurant turned down the lights, lit some mental candles (practically fireworks) and brought...

Always a friendly greeting from Mustafa and his staff. The food is always fresh and presented very well.Simply the best steaks and seafood in Kalkan. We have celebrated our last two wedding anniversaries here and look forward to next year.

We came here on a whim. The food here was okay, filling and wholesome cooking, however we all found the service very overbearing. We just wanted to relax and enjoy our meal but felt the waiting staff and manager were too overbearing which in all honesty, was irritating. We wanted to eat our meal and relax but simply couldn't. Don't... More

Always a good welcome from the management and staff at the Alternatif. It is in a nice quiet location where you can people watch all evening. The food is good and my husband enjoyed the fillet steak in a pepper sauce and i really fancied the lamb chops which were unfortunately on this occasion a little tough, nevertheless both plates...

We were recommended to go here by two English families with properties in Kalkan. 3/4 of us had fillet steak. Best they've ever tasted and very reasonably priced. Friendly atmosphere with attentive staff.

Amusing to hear another reviewer criticise the music as we were actually tempted in by the dulcet tones of Van Morrison playing from the terrace. We were warmly greeted by a lovely young guy called Urgan who couldn't have made us feel more welcome. We had drinks and a light lunch and passed a very interesting hour chatting to Urgan... More

We had heard so much about this restaurant so gave it a try one night but were rather disappointed in the size of the meals given the cost. The steaks were excellent but very small in size and the vegetables which accompanied the meal were very small in number and very artfully displayed - nice but not really good value... More
