A very relaxed and welcoming restaurant - no views but the staff will keep you entertained with magic tricks! The food is plentiful and well cooked with an extensive range to choose from. Very popular with the English visitors but locals also seen there.

We have visited this restaurant on previous holidays to Kalkan and this year went twice, purely for great ambiance, good food at an affordable price and the lovely staff.

What makes this restaurant special is the staff. Great guys ensuring you have a good meal. This year they have added the opportunity of going up to their farm in the mountains for the day. They take along their new chef and staff and while you swim and relax they cook fresh ingredients on the BBQ. Now I know where all that great food comes from and I thought it was magic!

Really love this place - best Fillet steak ever - great entertainment with close up magic, good selection of wines - all in all probably Kalkans best restaurant. (a bit dearer than most - but worth the extra)

Kaya is very much an experience to be enjoyed. Kadir and Erol are very appreciative of the loyal support from families year after year and put a huge amount of effort into re-inventing themselves so that there is always something different. This year they have relocated their kitchen to provide quicker, more efficient servings of good quality food, where the menu doesn't stand still and is varied to give something for everyone.
Kadir's magic is of an exceptional quality and again he tries to make it different for those regulars that come back year after year.
In a further attempt to engage with us tourists and provide something 'different', they take weekly trips up into the cooler mountain region to Erol's home, where they provide a BBQ and there is a pool to cool down even further. This gives a greater insight into real Turkish life and gives the opportunity to talk to the guys and learn a lot more about the region.
We are regulars at the Kaya and have always recommended it to guests at our villa and every one of them has thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

This place is a must for anyone, we always eat here when we visit Kalkan. I thoroughly recommended the duck sourced from their family farm, melt in the mouth lamb and grouper fish, a firm favourite of mine. We love our food so would not recommend if it is was not worth it. Kadir, one of the owners used to be in the Magic Circle and will entertain you with his card tricks after your meal that will leave you amazed! For those reviewers that complained that there was not enough magic, first and foremost this is a restaurant not an entertainment venue, the magic is a lucky bonus at the end of your meal. There is always lots of laughter at the Kaya and their customer service is excellent, if they know it's your birthday or special occasion they will go out of their way to make it special for you whoever you are, you will not be disappointed.
