Had drinks one afternoon then went the following evening for a very nice meal, the presentation and quality of the food was far greater than I expected considering the prices. The staff were all very attentive and seemed very happy in their work.

Over sold - under delivered. Staff here are very accommodating and the location is very good but there is much better food to be had elsewhere.

The Akin Restaurant is a small restaurant on the hill overlooking the harbor at Kalkan. I was attracted by its commanding view of the harbor and its outdoor ambiance. The larger restaurants nearer to the harbor have no view and are nice, but feel closed in. I made a reservation for the evening and when we arrived we were greeted... More

Our friends had booked this and asked if we wanted to join them for dinner. The manager has always spoken to us on our way back from the beach but has never been pushy or pestered us to come in. The food was superb, from the presentation to the quality and taste. Very good service and very reasonably priced. There... More

We stopped off here just for a drink were entertained with magic tricks by the manager which were great! This made us stay for a couple more and then decided to eat. It was not a disappointment there was a vast selection on the menu to suit everyone's tastes. I would recommend the mezze 12 lira, it was a selection... More

After speaking to owner almost every night following meals and drinks elsewhere we decided to give Akin restaurant a go as he really made an effort with us. To our surprise we weren't disappointed, we were brought out a sharing flat bread which was on the house then we followed that with starters of stuffed mushrooms and garlic bread, both... More

We had a great meal with friendly fun service and super food. The views are great and we did mean to return but never managed as there are just so many lovely restaurants in Kalkan to choose from. We have booked to return to Kalkan 2015 and this restaurant will be on our to do list.
