We tried this restaurant after being recommended by another couple on holiday in the area. A good selection but not to many choices, food was excellant I had Prawn Casserole and my partner had Seabass in a Prawn Sauce. We were given complimentry small meze starter, also small sweets and after dinner drink, and the wine was very good local wine. This was one of the best valued meal, service was very good, liked sitting out on the street, however the music was overpowered by everything else around. Will go again when we are holidaying in the area.

We had a very nice meal here, sitting in a side street. After complimentary olives with crusty bread my wife had a very delicious moussaka, I chose sea bass in foil which was well cooked but a few too many slices of lemon. complimentary amarettoto to finish was a nice touch. With a bottle of wine the bill was 75tl. not bad, well worth a visit.

After reading the many reviews of this restaurant we had pretty high expectations! The meal was well priced and as 1st time visitors to kalkan we don't have a lot of comparisons but the grilled prawns were very average, the calamari was also average and a green Turkish salad definitely didn't stack up to others tried else where. Overall the meal was ok, but compared to the rave reviews it's already received we were a bit disappointed. Looking forward to continuing our culinary adventure of kalkan elsewhere!

We returned this year and we are so happy to find this is just as fantastic as last year.

Gary's comments re the chicken curry are spot on - give it a try - it's fantastic.

See you all next year.
