“As good as ever”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We ate in this restaurant 18 years ago, and it didn't disappoint this time. Rooftop restaurant stunning, most interesting Turkish menu. It was the best meal we had had in Kalkan, but not the most expensive. We didn't get any of the complimentary tasters, though, bit this may be because while there was a short power cut whilst we were there, and it also started to rain, so the staff were obviously preoccupied.

“Simply devine”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Went here after recommendation from others. The place was obviously very popular as it was busy although we did not book. The selection of food is very good and traditional Turkish with a few other favourites. The steak here is fantastic and can recommend them.

Reviewed October 9, 2012

The Olive Garden is a very busy central restaurant. The atmosphere is good, and the fact that they just leave their menu on the street rather than have a greeter trying to drag you in tells its own tale. I did however find the food to be only average.

“Best Restaurant in Kalkan”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We stayed in Kalkan for 10 nights at the end of September and although we didn't have one bad meal, this was the best.
Slightly different menu to most of the other restaurants, the Goat Stew was marvellous. Also, you get sizeable and delicious complimentary starters and desserts - the doughball/mini donuts with choc sauce were heavenly !!
Aside from the great food, the view from the terrace is fantastic but most importantly the staff were great - it had the feel of a real family run restaurant which was steeped in tradition, there is a short history of the restaurant and the family in the menu which we enjoyed reading and it was overall just a lovely evening out.
Make sure you go there at least once during your hols !
