This is one of my favorite restaurants in Ankara. It is below an apartment block in Oran and quite small, so make sure to make reservations before heading there. I suggest getting a whole bunch of different plates to go along with raki for your meal. You can pick what you would like to eat at the glass stand at... More

Best Turkish seafood restaurant. The owners are very professional and they add new dishes to the menu every year. There is an opportunity to try something new in all your visits.

We have to agree with most others writing about Kalbur -- what a delightful neighborhood restaurant, with wonderful cooking and attention to detail! But first you have to find it. The address (Oran Çarşısı C Blok No:23, Çankaya Merkez) only got us so far with the cab driver .. but he was determined, and asked directions from locals once we... More

If you like seafood, you must go to Kalbur. Different taste, Always fresh, No surprises. Keep in mind to reserve your table two days before you plan to go. Restaurant is closed on Mondays.

Used to be an old favorite of ours... Used to have great food despite simple (not to say spritless) atmosphere. But both owners and waiters seem to be mislead by the overpopularity of the place: you do not feel welcome and are mistreated from the first till the last moment. You will be refused to be served if you go... More

If you like fish, and especially sea food based mezes (Turkish tapas) this is the place to go. We go there every time we come to Ankara, and we have never been disappointed.

Kalbur is located at one of the hidden places in Ankara; if you are not a citizen or guided by someone local, it may be hard to find but definitely worth the effort you're gonna put in. The owner Mr.Mehmet and his wife is always there wellcoming the guests. The place is very small, with small tables very close to... More

Kalbur is one of the oldest seafood and fish restaurant in Ankara. Quality of foods are never changed by the years.Foods are always fresh, delicous. You must rezerved your table before.There are two things which I do not like:1-Tables are very close to eachother, and space is small 2-they do not accept credicard.
