Exceptional presentation of food and very tasty dishes. More expensive than most (160 Lira for 2 meals and Bottle of Wine) but if you have a special occasion to celebrate, you will not go far wrong with this place.

Lovely terrace, superb guitarist.......but the food was just a tad on the ordinary. Sauces were a little bland - although the portions were more than adequate. It's OK but not the best by Kalkan's standards.

I love this restaurant. The food is good and it has the right amount of opulence and pizazz to make it stand above the rest. The bar area is lovely and the roof terrace is really spectacular. Well worth a visit!

Reasonably good food but it really lacked that 'something' that other local restaurants have. It is quite sterile and the service was average. Too much imagery going on.

Decided to try the restaurant after people recommended the place. We have returned to Kalkan year after year and so have eaten in many of the lovely restaurants in Kalkan by now including The Nar in the past. We arrived early and only one other table was taken. I ordered steak. The food was good but the service was awful.... More

Our first night out - we were recommended by friends and it didn't disappoint. Great food, attentive service, friendly atmosphere on a large rooftop that felt like it was on top of everything.

We've been to this restaurant in previous years and it's always been very good food and service. This year the food was very poor and the service wasn't much better. Meat was poor quality compared to other restaurants. Service very slow - we had to keep asking for drinks we had ordered that didn't turn up. Main courses arrived at... More

The terrace is lovely. But the service was poor, waiting over an hour for our main courses and the stuffed sea bass was inedible. However they did try their best to make amends. Even so, what we ate was expensive and we shall not return.
