Was looking forward to returning here and it did not disappoint. Went for both out wedding anniversary and our last meal in Kalkan. Service is friendly and prompt and everything is ran efficiently by the charming Mustafa. For the quality of steak you get here it is fantastic value . Hubby is very fussy and one wee bit of pink...

Well known for their quality beef, and it's generally cooked to perfection. Mustafa is a great host and owner. The rest of the menu is pretty typical Turkish food, cooked well, but the steaks are worth trying.

We were recommended to try this restaurant. We were not at all impressed with the food. We were a party of five and none of us had a good meal. The waiters were pleasant and I can not complain about the service. However we did tell what we presumed to be the manager of the restaurant that we were not... More

Food wasn't great and have visited in the past I believe has gone downhill. We visited on a busy night and they seemed more interested in looking after the bigger tables and forgot about the couples, who no doubt were spending as much per head but not served in the same manner

Went there last night with some friends. The whole thing was really disappointing. I would even question that my fillet steak was actually a fillet, and not just a cheap cut. There are lots of good restaurants in Kalkan that you should try - this isn't one of them.
