It was very hot - about 45 degrees, but the breeze and the superb guitarist made this an evening to remember. Ottoman lamb served in pewter bowls and veal liver than was so tender. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Always worth a visit when in Kalkan. Warm, friendly and efficient service. The menu is perhaps not as comprehensive as some other restaurants but some great Turkish dishes. The meze is the best I've eaten in Kalkan, the Iskiender kebab always goes down well and the seafood platter was excellent according to my brother.

We ate here with no prior recommendation as it's a bit far down the TA review list but miss this place at your peril. It has the usual roof terrace with fab views and proved to be real gem. The OH had that special leg of lamb and I the ottoman chicken - both were define! The service was pleasant... More

Lovely food best mezze platter i have had in kalkan and a chicken curry that compares to no other, friendly family run old school resturant that still has all its charm. The view is also one of the best in kalkan.

We ate twice at the Sofra and each time we were welcomed by friendly staff and excellent food. The view from the roof top restaurant is amazing as this restaurant is on one of the higher roads so you can look down on all the nightlife, lights and ambience of magical Kalkan. Definitely worth a visit and very reasonably priced.

Sofra is one of the best restaurants in Kalkan and a favourite to which we return year after year. Their steaks are melt-in-the-mouth delicious and the grouper and prawn skewered kebab is mouthwatering. You don't really need a starter here, as garlic bread and various mezze are provided as standard. It also means you have room for the wonderful dessert... More

Sampled a few steaks in Kalkan and none compare to Sofras, can honestly say since having a steak at Sofras I wouldn't dream of going elsewhere, it's to die for! And with over 8 to choose I would highly recommend the special Beykoz Bon fillet! Great service, lovely atmosphere, perfect evening! Booking recommended to get the best views which over... More

Lovely roof-top restaurant, with a relaxing atmosphere. Enjoyed mexe starters and Ottmam Chicken one night and lamb kebab on another. All superb, and served well by attentive staff.. Literally, a top restaurant.

What terrific views from this terrace - must be one of the best in Kalkan . Really good food and lovely atmosphere . Similar menu to every other restaurant in Kalkan but all delicious - the meze was probably the best yet .
