This was our fifth visit to Kalkan, we have fallen in love with this delightful Turkish town. No visit would be complete without eating at the amazing Zula restaurant. The food in our opinion is the best in Kalkan - fresh, beautifully cooked, the presentation is stunning and most of all extremely tasty. I have pretty much eaten everything on... More

We have eaten at Zula before and always been happy with our choices. The owner/manager is very personable and friendly and the food very good indeed. I was surprised that there were so few diners but there are many restaurants along that particular walkway and maybe it suffers because of that. I had the swordfish steak and it was really... More

We went to Zula after a recommendation from another guest at our hotel. we hadn't booked, but we got a table on the roof terrace, very nice quite close to the restaurant in front, but a very pleasant well designed layout. The waitor was very attentive, and informative, he said that the special that evening was T bone steak. We... More

Zula is probably the place I like going most in Kalkan. We usually have pre-dinner drinks sat outside but make sure we eat there at least a couple of times on our holiday. You maybe don't get the view that you do from other restaurants but the food and service is always exceptionally good. I had the beef noodles and... More

This restaurant has never failed to impress. It is good value for money and the food is very good indeed. We had the stuffed chicken with spinach which was delicious. Would highly recommend.

Zula was recommended by some friends and ranks highly on TripAdvisor reports. The food is excellent and the service ranks amongst the best. There is a wide choice on the menu and most people should find something of interest. Steaks are excellent and all very well priced. Less expensive than most of the restaurants overlooking the harbour. Zula is a... More

Well done Zula. We knew this place had a good reputation so it was no real surprise that our meal, service etc. was excellent. There's not a need to say anything other than excellent....apart from the nice touch of putting the bottle of water in an ice bucket, the only place to do so.

Zula is the place where you can get from a cup of coffee to world wide dishes.Since there is no Starbucks in Kalkan,you should at least visit Zula and test their great-tasting coffee.Their excellence certificate of Tripadvisor,will reflect your eyes through the glass door.

Fab food on a nice rooftop. The service was excellent and the owner really did seem to take pride in his restaurant. I had stuffed calamari and my hubby had the biggest steak I have ever seen, great value for such good quality meals. Highly recommended.

Our first time in Kalkan, and when we arrived we were determined to try as many restaurants as possible. Well, no need. This restaurant was visited on our 4th night, 4th restaurant, and was by far the best. It scores on every level. Kind, attentive service from Mehmet the owner, down to the young lads who serve you both drinks... More
