We came here for the first time this year, both for mezze at lunch and again for dinner. It was very good on both occasions. The classical guitarist enhanced our dinner experience. It has a cosy ambience, the service is very good indeed and the food is extremely tasty. It has great views, even... read more

Recommended by friends, we were immediately taken by the surroundings in this beautiful rooftop restaurant. So much to look at, really interesting displays. We were lucky, it was mid October so not height of season, so no need to book. Clearly a family run concern, the staff were all wonderful - attentive but not pushy, and entertained the children :-)... More

This is a restaurant where pre booking really is advisable - it is popular especially on nights when the classical guitarist provides live entertainment! There is an indoor seating area, but most people want to have a table on the rooftop terrace. Although not one of the closest restaurants to the coast, the location of Sofra means diners can gaze...

Well worth a visit. Not the best but better than most. Staff friendly. Food good but not exceptional. Views were good. Decor quite dated.

Have been to this restaurant every time we have visited Kalkan and it never fails to impress. The service is always good and the food excellent. The meze starter is one of the best experienced in Kalkan and the Ishkender kebab is to die for. Also great views across Kalkan.

Been to this wonderful rooftop restaurant more often than I can remember. New ones, heralded as the bee's knees, have sprung up and we've visited them too. Sofra tops them all for being consistently better than good on all fronts! If I wanted to splash out a little, I'd book here.

We have always eaten here for the past 12 years at least once during our stay in Kalkan. Usually when there is guitar music. It is still run by the same family and the parents are now cooking. The sea bass and prawns in blue cheese sauce is always a winner.

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
