Still my favourite restaurant in the world

Still my favourite restaurant in the world due to the staff, food and view. Such a friendly place. Fried halloumi cheese for starters is a must. A visit to Kalkan is not complete without going to Sofra. Also got the bonus of being next door to the Moonlight bar!

After walking passed the entrance many times we decided to give this place a go. The roof terrace is very nice but I would not agree that it had the best views in Kalkan, also we were sat near some plants and after a few minutes a massive insect stuck its stinger in my hand - thanks to the guy...

Very pleasant terrace restaurant with excellent food and staff. Not an obvious entrance door, but just look up to find it. Recommended

The food, the location, the view, the team, the ambiance, all was just spot on. Really worse the visit to enjoy a perfect turkish evening!

Me and the wife have been to Kalkan a few times, sorry lost count, and this year we are seeking out all the restaurants we have missed in the past and the Sofra was one of them, but I must say it would be in our top 10 for food, service and value and believe me we have eaten in... More

We tried this as friends had recommended it. Lovely service and I have to say my dish of calves liver was one of the best I have had. The fajita was also very good. Unfortunately the rest of the party were very disappointed including a very weird kebab covered in tomato sauce with broken up pitta bread pieces stirred into... More

This was the best place we ate all holiday. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and great views. The staff were very friendly. Service was good and the food was excellent. One of the few restaurants where the staff let the food speak for itself rather than hoping the over the top service will make up for any shortfallings on... More

A relaxed and atmospheric evening spent on the terrace over looking Kalkan bay. The food was delicious and authentic and the staff warm and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and would visit again.
