My wife enjoyed the Vegetarian lasagna plus the greek salad whilst I enjoyed the sea bass both presented excellently and very prompt, the service was friendly and efficient and very good value for money. Turkish fine dining? ...I think a big yes.

Kalkan is simply littered with great places to eat and the Akin is one of the best in the town. We have been eating here for over 20 years and never been disappointed. Situated just up from the harbour it has great views and ambience. It's traditionally Turkish food is great quality and competitively priced for Kalkan. Like everywhere in... More

This restaurant set just up from the harbour is one of favourites and we will always visit it a couple of times during our stay. The staff are really nice and the food very good quality and nicely presented. In fact looking at its position, quality of food and reasonable prices, this is one of the best value restaurants in...

We stumbled across this wee reassurance by accident and omg the food was just amazing. The wine that was recommended was 1st class and the staff were just so lovely . We will definitely go back a couple of times before the end of the holiday. Thank you for such a lovely evening .

We first came to Kalkan 20 years ago and Akin was the first restaurant that we dined at,there have been changes... More

Night we visited I think they were having problems in kitchen. We waited an hour for main mail which when it finally came was nothing special. This is not acceptable. Apart from the youngest member of staff (who was very apologetic) everyone else was avoiding issue. We weren't the only ones complaining so kitchen was obviously having a melt down.... More

I love this Restaurant because it has an airy terrace with a great view of the harbour and out to sea. I particularly recommend the King Prawns .

We walked past Akin every day on our way from the harbour to our hotel and were always warmly greeted, and one hot afternoon offered water as we made our way up the hill. I wanted to try the restaurant and they gave us a nice table overlooking the harbour. The food was very nice and the bill reasonable (well... More
