Our favourite place in Kalkan

Friendly staff, a great menu, tasty food and a relaxed and friendly atmosphere made The Old Trading House our favourite restaurant in Kalkan. We enjoyed meeting the staff and returned on our last night for a big celebratory meal!! We would highly recommend this restaurant!

Tonight we visited The Old Trading House for Dinner, the menu seemed to be interesting. My starter (vegetable samosa) was completely tasteless. The sauce of my main dish fatty and flavorless, the meat (duck) gristly, the red housewine not drinkable. Staff was friendly but no one was interested to know why half full plates and a full glas of wine... More

This is certainly one of the most stylish restaurants in Kalkan and the top terrace has incredible views. The lamb shank is very good and the Turkish red wine exceptionally good value. We would have preferred things a little more spicy though.

Initially we were planning on going to another restaurant but when we saw this place we quickly changed our minds. From the outside the resturant looks very nice and pretty and follows through to the main eating area. The staff were friendly and were more than happy to change the wine we decided on initially. The food was one of... More

We have just returned from a very nice week in Kalkan, this time with the "in-laws" for their first visit. As you would expect, we wanted to show them our favourite places and restaurants, so, we took them to The Trading House. This was our 10th visit over the years we have been holidaying in Kalkan. We arrived to the... More

The Old Trading House has quite typical Kalkan food but I had the duck special with mulberry sauce and cinnamon rice. It was very good. The staff are friendly and try their best without being overwhelming. I'd definitely go again.

Limited choice of starters with small portions (only 3 small boreck which were doughy in the centre) - unlike the 5 pieces which are double in size and full of cheese served at Cafe Leon nearby . Main courses of lamb and chicken sheesh kebab were of poor quality meat (tough lamb) and were small portions compared to other Kalkan... More

We tried a different restaurant each night and didn't experience one bad meal occasion but there's always one which stands out.....and it was The Old Trading House. First off make sure you get a table on the top level (there are 2 levels). Everything was perfect - very attentive service without being pushy. Excellent food - we chose the ottoman... More
