Driving from Kalkan to Islamlar you cannot fail to be stirred by the wonderful scenery (and dreadful roads) as you travail the route leading to the Trout farms. We stopped at Mahmuts Restaurant which is also a Trout farm and from a seat overlooking the valley found the view quite breathtaking. The food, unfortunately was not. We started with an... More

Not easy to find but well worth the drive out of Kalkan. Some upgrading of the restaurant going on but that did not detract from the excellent fish and salad. Good value for money.

We were staying in the little village of Islamlar and dined here twice. Islamlar is up the mountain north of Kalkan a few km's up a windy road. It's a little cooler in the evening when the sun drops (especially out of season), so if you're coming from Kalkan then I would prepare for this as it may come as... More

Went to Mahmuts on the last evening of our holiday.....literally en route to the airport. We were a party of 5 and didn't realise that on Weds evenings it was a set menu with lamb as the main course meaning that we would not be able to order a la carte......however the owner of the restaurant was totally accommodating and...

We booked on the strength of a leaflet through our villa. They come to pick you up and off you go, up and up the windy roads. We chose the 'lamb' night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Only downside was constant pestering of months as the sun went down but it was good value for money and a lovely setting. Everyone... More

20 minute uphill drive from Kalkan to Islamlar is Mahmut's. We had decided to find a restaurant in the hills serving a traditional Turkish breakfast and found the right place. The spicy eggs were delicious and with the basket of lovely bread,fruit,honey,jam,coffee etc it made for a wonderful experience. The price was very reasonable for a full breakfast. The fresh...

We had a leaflet left in our villa that offered a free taxi ride to this restaurant for a fixed price menu. How could we lose?? Taxi turned up 25 mins early so we had to leave ill prepared, squashed into what would be better desribed as child seats in the back (5 passengers in the taxi). Journey more than... More

Went to the Wednesday night themed evening - included was taxi which was just as well as would not have gone all that way otherwise. Food was ok, but if four of you are going then book two tables for two rather than one for four as two people will get the SAME AMOUNT of food as four will but... More
