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

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
