We didn't eat here but called a few times for cocktails which were very good and not too expensive. There is a very big open air sitting area with cushions and tables and chairs separate on a patio. The good thing for me was even though there was a television on you could sit in a position where you didn't... More

Advised to go here for a really good steak and that is what we got. Quality delicious fillet steak cooked as requested and a pepper sauce. Service was attentive and friendly and we felt very much at home. Will return here next time when we want a steak.

I remember the 'old' Alternatif and pleased that they are still doing the business in the new location. It's not quite as charming any more but still a good place for a steak. For me probably top 5 though there are so many restaurants to try in Kalkan. Service was reasonable and I would probably think about returning when I... More

Great views, wonderful staff and glorious food. My goulash dish was excellent. We didn't order starters but a massive plate of dips, accompanied by warm fresh bread arrived, courtesy of the manager. A great place for an evening meal, it tends to be busy, so well worth booking!

The quality of restaurants in Kalkan is generally superb and you are spoiled for choice, there were 7 in our party all choosing different dishes and all of us were very impressed. Overall as a whole this place came out as our favourite meal and as mentioned before the competition there is high. Excellent service and a pleasure to dine... More

We walked past the new Alternatif restaurant every evening saying we should try this. So one evening we climbed the orange lit steps, and stepped inside. We were offered the specials and decided on steaks from the BBQ. We have always gone to Doy Doy for our steaks so we were a little hesitant but thought" we have never had... More

We ate here twice whilst in Kalkan, the steak the best I had ever had, anywhere! It was melt in the mouth with sauce of almonds, mushrooms and cream. I ordered it medium no blood, it came exactly as requested. We don't order starters as portions large everywhere in a Kalkan. You get complimentary starter plate to share while you... More

We ate here on the roof terrace on our first night and it couldn't have been better. Hubby had steak and at the end of the week he said it was the best steak he had had (and he tried a few) I had a meatball casserole. The staff were very attentive and friendly and there was a romantic moment... More

I wanted to eat here all week and did on out final night, meal of the week by a mile, everyone who had the steak was in awe of its taste, so many varieties of steak as well, six of us had different starters which were all excellent. The service was brilliant, waiters couldn't be more helpful, taking our carry... More

Great food and attentive service. Probably the best steak I've ever had in Kalkan which is a real statement from me. Hubby had Pasta which was scummy. Complimentary coffee and liquors were given. Would definitely recommend
