Kalkans first restaurant. Best in town for meze and fish. Good prices too. Lovely personal. A must if you are in Kalkan.

This is one of the fish restaurants that has a water view so this is very popular. The food is delicious and the prices are reasonable. Just make sure, when paying with credit card, you mention that you want to pay using local currency, otherwise...they will charge you with a foreign currency based on your card, and you will lose on the exchange rate. Most restaurants would ask you which currency to use as a courtesy to the customer but the night we were there, they did not. That was my only critique.More

Akin had great mezzes and delicious main courses. Our server was really efficient and we had great conversation with him (sorry can't remember his name!) Reasonable priced as well.

We visited Akin restaurant 3 times for dinner and once for lunch last week and we were blown away by it. The food is exceptional and fantastic value for money. My particular favourites were the fish cakes for starters which were divine and my favourite...main course was the sea bass stuffed with spinach and topped with cheese but myself and my wife loved every meal we had. The setting is wonderful with lovely views across the bay. All the staff are brilliant and they made you feel like a friend rather than a customer. I’d recommend Akin to anyone and we’ll be back in June next year!More

A friendly welcome from all, excellent table service and a straightforward menu of local classics including excellent fresh fish, grilled whole. Of all the restaurants in wonderful Kalkan, this is the one that calls us back - consistent, very fairly priced and a simple wine...list that doesn't disappoint. The team made a fuss of us on a wedding anniversary visit last week (sparkler cake & decorated table, very kind and thoughtful) - we felt really touched and loved the place even more as a result. Every visit has been a success and we shall return on each visit to this wonderful town.More

It’s been 5 years since we had a very nice lunch here & having dined their again last night, my only regret is not going back before! Akin has a lovely position, just below the Old town mosque with fantastic elevated views over Kalkan harbour....Service is friendly without the over the top service you get elsewhere. The food we had was delicious & very good value for the quality. Fried calamari & the crazy meatballs get a special mention. It would be another 5 years since I return for sure. Excellent.More
