Aydin was a very helpful host. The pick up service from Kalkan is a great idea. Lovely meze and a good trout dish. Overall a very pleasant lunch and different experience

We have visited Kalkan four times and have always promised ourselves a trip up there. This time.. We did. Telephoned to reserve a table and to arrange a lift. It was a beautiful day and the midday view was outstanding enough and then the food arrived!!!We decided on the three course menu and were astonished by the presentation and quality... More

Looking for a change of scenery we picked this restaurant as we’d never eaten here on previous visits to Islamlar. It’s located just around the corner from the graveyard, near Hussein’s Place. A warm welcome at the bottom of the steps. The seating area is quite large and lacks personality. It was also full of Brits on the night we... More

We've been to Mahmut's on a previous visit to Kalkan and have loved the food, so it was an easy decision to call in while out for a drive and book a table for dinner - we really wanted the slow roasted lamb but couldn't make it on their special lamb menu evening. Not a problem as they arranged for... More

We had heard rumours of a great trout fish restaurant hidden in the hills above Kalkan. We asked around and hearing about 'Mahmut's' which we were told was some twenty minutes up some rather hairy roads. Thanks to a very helpful chap at Define Tours, we booked a table for the same night and were chuffed to find that Mahmut... More

We were handed a leaflet for Mahmut's Restaurant by his brother who told us about 'Lamb night'. We decided to give it a try as it was something different. I'm so glad we made the effort! Someone from the restaurant actually came to pick us up from our villa in a big land-rover at a pre-arranged time and took us... More

Driving from Kalkan to Islamlar you cannot fail to be stirred by the wonderful scenery (and dreadful roads) as you travail the route leading to the Trout farms. We stopped at Mahmuts Restaurant which is also a Trout farm and from a seat overlooking the valley found the view quite breathtaking. The food, unfortunately was not. We started with an... More

Not easy to find but well worth the drive out of Kalkan. Some upgrading of the restaurant going on but that did not detract from the excellent fish and salad. Good value for money.

We were staying in the little village of Islamlar and dined here twice. Islamlar is up the mountain north of Kalkan a few km's up a windy road. It's a little cooler in the evening when the sun drops (especially out of season), so if you're coming from Kalkan then I would prepare for this as it may come as... More
