This was our 2nd visit to Kalkan and our 2nd visit to Adam's Place. This is the only Restaurant that we went to twice as our husbands couldn't wait to sample Adam's famous lamb shank and they weren't disappointed, just as brilliant as they remembered. I had Mousakka which was also very very tasty and my friend who is a Veggie also had a brilliant meal. Adam provides a pick up and drop off service from whereever you are and it is a joy to get away from the repetitive roof top eating places in town, if you are there earlier when there is stil daylight, the views are fantastic. Very friendly and helpful. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Great views - we got there before dark, Pick-up worked well, service a bit slow, but we enjoyed the lamb shank speciality. Good antidote to some of the more "in your face" restaurants back in Kalkan. Nice and calm - laid back and relaxed.

Just a stone's throw from Kalkan the views from this restaurant make it well worth the trip and the owner, Adam, is happy to collect you and drop you home too!

It's hard to decide what to choose from the traditional Turkish menu all lovingly prepared by Adam's wife. Truly a family concern she cooks and their sweet natured smiling daughters wait on tables while Adam ensures that everything runs smoothly "front of house".

Most of the ingredients for the meze platter have only travelled about 100 metres to your dinner table as Adam grows a range of vegetables around the restaurant, which is also the site of the family home.

A great location for both lunch and dinner Adam's is a must-visit restaurant if you're staying in or around Kalkan.

Adam came and collected us from our hotel in the centre of Kalkan and took us the 4km up to his restaurant.

In hindsight we went a bit too late (collected at 8) as it was already dark, so arguably missed out on the advantages of seeing the views and sunset, and as such there weren't many other diners around so there was a slight lack of atmosphere.

However, the service from Adam and his daughter was very friendly and efficient, and the food was delicious and very authentic - I believe it was cooked by Adam's wife. I had the lamb shank which arrived with fire surrounding it which was intriguing. My husband had fish, which looked perfectly cooked.

At the end of our meal Adam's daughter showed us some of her homemade jewellery which she was making to raise money for her school and we bought a keyring from her - how could we resist!

A lovely family run restaurant and well worth a visit to get out of Kalkan for the evening - my only advice is to go earlier in the evening than we did.

Had a great meal with friends having eaten at Adams on previous visits. It is a wonderful setting & great to be picked up & dropped off at the hotel. Unfortunately Adam wasnt his usual chirpy self having just last one of his cats and he was distant & distracted.
Our meze plates were good but as soon as we finished them our main was served and a gap would have been better. We had to ask for further drinks and this was not due to the restaurant being busy as there was only us and 1 other table. Our mains were average but not as good as other places we ate in Kalkan and the service that night was lacking. We did however make allowances for the fact that Adam was upset but it did mean our dining experience was just average
