We have found this very good restaurant by chance while walking in and around the small roads through Kalkan.This restaurant has a fantastic view with very good seating facility and offers an English and Turkish menu as the majority of the guests here are from Great Britain.We have tried lamb and some king prawns which were perfectly prepared and served.Liked...

Couldn't fault it. We were warmly welcomed and given a table, when a couple moved from the edge of the balcony (giving you a panoramic view of the bay) the waiter kindly asked if we would like to move there which we did. The food was fabulous, my husband had the Iskender Kebab and I had the Stir Fry Bon... More

I was really surprised how bad it was based upon the good previous reviews. The restaurant is up on the roof with not particularly attractive views of the rooftops. It looks as if it was last decorated in the 70's and is very tired. The service was gruff almost rude. The food was very poor. The lamb dish we ordered... More

This gem could be walked past or missed as it is on the higher street as the Main Street into kalkan splits. We had a delicious 2 course meal with wine for 150 TL and the view was stunning. Lovely service and guitar music was excellent to listen to while we ate and relaxed. Book in to avoid busy times.... More

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
