We had a really nice meal here - the food was very good, and the view over the harbour is perfect. As is usual for the restaurants we were given complimentary bread and also complimentary watermelon at the end of the meal. My moussaka was very nice indeed and other peoples meals were also delicious and very nicely presented. The... More

It's really quaint, the food and service are first class - it felt more authentic than some of the other places we visited . Also there are some fantastic views... More

Last visited 5 years ago and the food and the view and the friendly staff are as good as we remember. All freshly cooked and authentic. Everyone there just wants to make your meal a great experience, explaining everything and taking a lot of care to ensure that you get want you want

Breath taking views across the harbour and out across the bay. Lots of choice across fish, meat and vegetable based dishes. Returned especially to have Ottoman Chicken again. Served in beautiful traditional Turkish bowls and comprising spiced chicken, cous-cous and marinated fruit - hard to explain how truly delicious it is but would highly recommend. My husband raves about their... More

Despite being spoilt for choice in Kalkan we ate at this restuarants 3 times in a week such was the standard of food and service. The waiters were friendly and attentive and the food delicious. Value for money is astonising compared to the UK . I could recommend the leg of lamb, bon fillet stir fry and moussaka. If you... More

Had an amazing meal here. The meze starter was great as was the fillet steak. We were spoilt by the staff who looked after us all evening with being too intrusive. We sat eating , drinking while looking out over picturesque Kalkan . This is a "do not miss"meal out.

We had a family meal celebrating two birthdays at once. The staff kindly decorated our tables beautifully on the terrace. Waiters Ugur and Mustafa were just so friendly and couldn't do enough to make us all feel welcomed. The only problem for some may be the portion sizes especially the mess platters. Meze platter for 2 is certainly plenty for... More
