“Authentic family run delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

We loved this place, the host and his wife and son are so proud of this quaint, small homely restaurant. Book early as we had to wait over a week to get a table! The mixed meze starter we shared was scrummy and we followed this with seafood casserole, whilst our girls had equally superbly home cooked food! Please don't miss out on this wonderful treat ! We were made so welcome, it's just a shame we ran out of holiday to return this year!

“Simply the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

This restaurant is simply the best in Kalkan. It isnt just the food that is good but cal and his wife are the friendliest people I have ever met. I almost feel part of the family! Either email them and book before you go or visit them early in your holiday to book a table or else you will be disappointed

“Excellent Value unusual restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

Only 4 tables including the balcony. Air-con so nice and cool. The owners were very friendly and attentive and the food was superb and excellent value. We booked by email before we left the UK. I would recommend booking or you will be disappointed. We are returning to Kalkan in 2015 and Small House will definitely be first on our list.

“First meal in Kalkan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

We ate on 2 August Delicious homemade meze and lots of warm fresh bread - a great beginning to a lovely meal . We were 6 and tried bass on and off the bone , mussels , calamari , kofte and kidneys all cooked as we waited . Very reasonably priced . Well worth booking .

“Great find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Read the reviews about small house & it definitely lived up to them.
Booked about a week in advance for an inside table, there is aircon but it did get a bit warm when we were eating the main course!
The starter meze to share is a must - delicious.
We had the meatballs with sauce & cheese - very good but very filling & the fish casserole, again very good, but we were a bit jealous of the lamb casserole next to us!
The grouper looked great & reviews of the seabass were very high.

Jan was a perfect host & all the food was home cooked by his wife, a great team.
They only want to see you enjoy the food & be happy & you get to write your own review on the wall!
Highly recommended - book very early if you want the one & only balcony table!
