very nice location and friendly owner. The fish there is a must (fresh and tasty). We had breakfast and lunch there. In both times, the food was fresh and felt like home made food.

Great place to visit for a change in the August heat . They will collect you free of charge from your accommodation ( but you will have to chose one of their set meals at around 45tl per person - around £13 to qualify). A very good deal really for a delicious selection of hot and cold mezes, rocket salad... More

Visited three years in a row, perfect spot for a deliciously fresh lunch with an amazing view. Requires car or taxi and a map to reach, but worth the effort. Freshest trout ever...

Two of only 4 diners in what quiet a large restaurant, large menu but only around half of it available, had a selection of very good mezzes and some very poor lamb sold as a casserole and really a stir fry. With some calamari that would have presented a challenge to one of the local goats, it was that chewy... More

We were picked up from our hotel free of charge and returned.We enjoyed the wonderful views on our way to this Trout farm and restaurant high up in the Taurus mountains. Great to experience the cooler temperature and greenery. Great value, good food and friendly. We went for lunch and were the only people there, however, it is obvious they... More

Whilst on holiday in Kalkan, stumbled on this lovely find whilst out for a mountain drive. What a find away from the bustle and heat of Kalkan. Lovely Turkish food and the aubergine and cheese part of a set menu was superb. We will be going back and a lot cheaper than Kalkan.

Great restaurant in Islamlar. We went for lunch and had freshly grilled trout for 10TL. Very friendly and good service. They have 3 special nights, trout, lamb & BBQ and they will collect from your kalkan villa and take you back after included in the price. Wondered why it wasn't on TA but it's because it has been first entered... More
