Fantastic mezze platter and great service

Located in a nice shady spot overlooking harbor, much needed in 40deg+ weather. Food was outstanding and excellent value for money. Friendly service and general all round good experience.

Everything about this restaurant, from the wonderful, friendly service to the absolutely amazing food is perfect. Ahmet and his team look after you from the minute you sit down and always have a friendly word and hug for you when you pass by. Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Kalkan.

If you have been to Kalkan you will know that there are a few resteraunts within a 10 minute walk of each other, so competition is high so places need to be on top of there game. Our kids chose to eat in here so we went in, it doesnt look as nice as other places but is still ok.... More

We have been coming to Kalkan for many years and, as always, cannot fault the service, staff and of course the food at Akin! The restaurant is perfectly situated - great for people watching and the views across the harbour are exceptional, enjoying one of the best locations. Ahmet and Ekrem make every visit a pleasure, always making us feel... More

Akin is looking a bit tired, and, although it's cheap, the food really isn't that special. I had a lamb meatball dish, which was pleasant, but rather pedestrian, and Lucy had Imam Bayildi, which was tepid and greasy. The kids had pizzas, which were pretty uninspiring. You can do a lot better in Kalkan.

This was the original Kalkan restaurant in 1955. The food was superb, the setting beautiful and the staff attentive but not intrusional.

We had lunch today at what can only be described as a little gem. Food was fabulous and the service was superb. This unassuming restaurant probably gets overlooked by lots but what a wonderful place to eat and a great view. We really can't portray how hospitable and welcoming the staff are and if you have a young family, this... More
