Great place

Islamlar is one of my favorite places in Asia Minor and Mahmut is a superb host with plain honest cooking and the service you'd expect. Do check out his occasional belly dancing nights - seriously!

Considering we went up to Mahmut's on the worst day weather wise - it was torrential rain Eype turned up only slightly after our pick up time so we take our hat off to him for that. We ordered the Meat meze and a bottle of wine, but sadly we were disappointed with what we were served. The cold meze... More

Worth the short drive up into the hills, or, the spectacular and very scenic drive, if you miss the first left turning out of Kalkan and go the long way round, as we did on our first visit to the trout restaurants! We had the amazing rocket and fried halumi cheese as starter, which is very Moorish - I wish... More

Cooked perfectly and so moist and tasty (had grilled option) Great location, stunning views and good atmosphere. Service was brilliant including the option of being collected and dropped... More

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
