This was probably one of the tastiest dinners we've had in Turkey. Not the cheapest by any means, (but not exhorbitant either) and very atmospheric. We had the mezze platter for two, which at 38 TL was quite sufficient for us along with 2 servings of raki (14 TL each). They charge 6 TL for the water, which I thought... More

We visited this restaurant twice during our two week stay in Kalkan. The restaurant has a very good atmosphere and good attentive friendly staff. All food is freshly prepared in the open kitchen and was delicious on each occasion. This is well worth a visit, offering good food at a very reasonable cost and I would definitely recommend Sofra.

The menu looked so interesting here but the description of some dishes did not match the plate of food that left the kitchen. Starters were fine - prawns and garlic mushrooms. I ordered lamb kebabs as I really wanted some pieces of grilled lamb but brought to the table was a dish containing 2 slices of doner kebab placed on... More

We booked our favourite table at th front of the terrace and the views are lovely. Friendly staff and good service. We decided to go back for... More

We always visit Sofra in our weeks in Kalkan and the food has never disappointed alwYs being very tasty. What did disappoint us however was being told we would get a free bottle of wine and then the waiter trying to make out that the offer was only valid that night which had never been mentioned

It was 2 years ago when we last came hereand it is still just as good, the view is lovely and the restaurant was really busy. I had a very nice sea bass and my had a tasty chicken breast,with a bottle of wine it came to about 30 pounds,good value for a very pleasant evening.
