Another delicious restaurant with very tasty food and good service. We will definitely return here if and when we come back to Kalkan.

Everyone is so nice in this restaurant and the food is OK but sadly a bit average. My daughter had an Imam Bayildi as main course, which we usually love. Well, it was quite disappointing. The aubergine was undercooked, there were mushrooms and other vegetables added on top, which in itself would not have mattered except my daughter hates mushrooms.... More

This restaurant promised much with it's rooftop terrace but delivered nothing in terms of service or food. Three of the four starters arrived cold and had to be sent back to the kitchen. After a long wait our mains arrived. I ordered the vegetarian lasagne which turned out to be French fries topped with tomato sauce, mushrooms and melted cheese.... More

Traditional Turkish! Absolutely lovely food with a great atmosphere with a reasonable price. We have previously visited this restaurant and it is still is good as ever! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a delightful meal out with very good attentive staff and great meals.

Returned after two years to find the same relaxed atmosphere and good food. Good view out over the harbour. Prawns and borek for starters were good and the Testi Kebab was excellent. Worth a visit and also runs the excellent Cafe Del Mar downstairs, best coffee in Kalkan.

having been to kalkan for the last six years the ivy and cafe del mar is one of our favourites. the atmosphere that murat and his staff create is one of pure peace and relaxation. the distinctive smell of the joss sticks and its headie aroma coupled with classic music immediately awakens your sense and you could be in any...

We went as a family of 4 to the Ivy, never having been here in our 4 years visiting Kalkan. The kids meals were okay whereas my wife and I both had lamb shanks which were served stone cold and luke warm. After sending these 2 meals back, my wife was sent a fresh one 10 minutes later which was... More

Yes - another roof terrace, and actually not necessarily the best view. However - definitely the best and most attentive service (without being overpowering as the service in other restaurants sometimes was) and the setting is so quaint and atmospheric. I was on holiday with a group of friends and we ate here twice (and had many coffees, apple pies... More

As is de rigour in the ancient city - another roof terrace restaurant. Nice menu with some nice authentic dishes like slow cooked lamb, chicken with apricots etc. The family all rated the food highly. Whilst the family overall would maybe give the restaurant four stars....for me it is three on the following basis - the service is simply too... More

Situated above the excellent Cafe Del Mar, The Ivy has an excellent roof terrace with great views over Kalkan. The menu is extensive and traditional and we all enjoyed our food. One of our party is allergic to wheat and the staff were very helpful to make sure that nothing she chose contained wheat. The atmosphere was great and the... More
