“Fantastic food and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Fantastic restaurant run by a very friendly family who make you so welcome. This was the eighth time we have visited Kalkan (yes I know we didnt plan on liking the place so much) and since discovering Papparazzi on our second visit we have made it a must return to on each visit. Kalkan has so many places to eat but this should be at the top of anyones to do list. The food ranges from traditional turkish thru international. On our latest visit I tried the fillet steak wit pepper sauce which was outstanding and my partner had the lamb shish which showed off the quality of lamb brilliantly. For those who like fish this is a better priced alternative to the expensive harbour area and is as good if not better. To Ramo and family thanks again see you next year Chris & Dea

“Great family run restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

A romantic, traditional restaurant with soft lighting and a fabulous view of the bay. The food was contemporary fusion style because the owner, although Turkish, has spent a lot of time in India and this has influenced the menu and was reasonably priced. The staff are absolutely charming - we had a great evening and I will definitely be back.

“Nice, but needs a little work.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Some nice food, very nice infact, but let down by a couple of things.
My partner and I both fancied the Mixed Seafood Casserole. On the menu, the mixed seafood casserole was 32 lira. Also on the menu was a mixed casserole for 2, at 69 lira... A little bit perplexed, I asked the waitress if there was anything different between the two options, apart from size. Apparently not, the larger option for two was just double the portion - when I asked why it was cheaper to get two individual meals, they couldn't seem to understand the logic. My only other gripe was that we were encouraged to order a starter as the casserole could take a while (something that we had taken to not doing, as everywhere seems to give you free breads and dips on the house - and that with a starter fills you up). We ordered two small starters - stuffed vine leaves (10TL) and stuffed tomatoes (12TL). The vine leaves were disappointing. Considering they are sold in tins of 12 pieces for around 3TL, for my 10TL I got 4 pieces served cold straight from the tin. Not worth the money. Despite this, the casserole was delicious and the staff were friendly.
