“WOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

This was our first time at Touch Bistro, to be honest it would be easy to overlook this lovely little gem on your walk into town but please don't! It lies about half way down between the taxi rank and Infinity jewellers! It has such a chilled out atmosphere and the chap serving was so pleasant and laid back yet still efficient but not pushy! We noticed people who have obviously been before come in and also people popped in for a coffee and their dessert (more on that later!) the menu seems a little boring at first with the usual suspects on but don't be put off! I chose lamb and Aubergine casserole in a clay pot whilst hubby chose the meatballs in a clay pot. His was with mash and mine came with bulgar wheat instead of rice! What a fab addition that was, so much nuttier and tastier than the rice. We got a couple of bits of what I think they call turkish pizza to start and then the mains came. Well I have to say it was my most favourite dish of the whole holiday! I was left wanting to eat it again yet had no room! Until dessert was mentioned! The lovely chap I mentioned before then offered us a dessert, none of this 'let me show you a picture of what you could have' he simply offered us a lemon cheesecake and a hot choc brownie both with ice cream! The way he offered it? Well we couldn't refuse! we had both! Good grief they were both awesome! All that with a beer and 2 wines was 120TL including tip - about £40! Highly, highly recommended and the music was fantastic too, lots of live lounge stuff! Very relaxing and added so much to a fab evening. We will be returning and we only have 2 days left!

“Thought it was better last year”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Was a little disappointed with the meal this year, last year we eat here several times and were blown away, this time we thought it was pretty average, and maybe that's why during our two week stay we never really saw it full in the evening unlike last year when you had to book in advance. On the plus Hassan is as lovely and freindly as ever and we did stop off in the afternoon for drinks on our way back to our hotel a couple of times and it was nice to just chill and people watch - not sure what happened with the food this year..

“Excellent lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

I've been meaning to eat here for a while & eventually popped in for lunch. Hassan used to work at Aubergine (when it was good!!) & you can tell my the welcome, friendly service & good food that the guy knows what it takes to run a successful & popular business.
My Strawberry smoothie was delicious, as was my pizza. Interesting menu, so will definitely return for dinner sometime. Quality.

“So friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

A great place to eat fantastic food or just relax and have a drink and a chat. The owner Hasan is so welcoming and always chatty and his girlfriend makes the best cheesecake. She will even make sweets to order if a table is booked a day in advance (she made us the most wonderful bread and butter pudding with dates)
We have been to Kalkan several times and will always stop inTouch and would recommend it to anyone
