We have spent the last 4 summer holidays in Kalkan, and are looking forward to staying in our new villa from this Easter. Kalkan has numerous fantastic restaurants, so you should have no trouble eating in a different restaurant every evening of your stay, and being very satisfied with both the quality and price. There is however one Restaurant that stands head and shoulders above the rest.......GIRONDA ... From the genuinely friendly welcome by the Owner -Jimmy (Volkan Aaladag), through to the pre dinner drinks in the sumptuously furnished inner courtyard, your every need will be catered for promptly and professionally. The menu selection is among the best we have seen in Kalkan, and all the ingredients are local and freshly cooked. We know this to be true because we have met Jimmy at the harbour buying fish fresh from the local fishermen on more than one occasion. We have NEVER left Gironda without being totally satisfied as a family of 6 people, with the quality of our delicious meals and the very friendly service provided by Jimmy and his team. After you have eaten there once, you will be greeted like long lost friends on subsequent visits. We have travelled all over the world, have stayed in some of the best 5 star hotels and have eaten in some incredible restaurants. That said, we feel we are suitably qualified to state that Gironda is one of the best restaurants we have ever eaten in. We met Jimmy in Kalkan last week, and he is extremely excited about the new menu that he and his head chef have designed for the forthcoming season, and from what he described.......we will certainly be first in the queue. As the old saying goes " You never get a second chance to make a first impression". Jimmy and his team take this seriously, and go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that you have a fantastic culinary experience and a fun evening. It's your own fault if you do not try this amazing restaurant. I am happy to provide genuine people with further comments, just e-mail me - ron@roseberrycarecentres.co.uk

This was our 4th visit to Kalkan and Gironda has been one of our favourite restaurants. But sadly this year all our food was a bit disappointing. We will give it a go again in October 2014. I hope the the food is back on track.

The restaurant is lovely inside with a roof terrace. When we visited we were placed right next to another table whcih was a bit close and we felt uncomfortable. The starters were nice, I had the stuffed squid which was lovely. However, the main course of fish pie was not so good with the prawn tails still intact and the sauce very rich and sickly. Overall not a bad experience but i was disappointed about the seating and the main course.

Arrived about 7 pm and was met by Jimmy. Had drinks in the courtyard where we ordered our meals,which was magical.We were then shown to our table on the edge of the roof overlooking the town and sea.The food was excellent as was the service,nothing was too much trouble. Cannot wait to return. Would recommend.

4th time in Gironda. Atmosphere is always good. Jimmy is a great host, rest of the staff is also great. Mezze and starters were good but the main course was so disapointed. The sole and the chicken were below normal standards. To bad because in the past Gironda was much much better!

As it is not difficult to find a good restaurant in Kalkan and the competition is huge I hope they will do better next year :)
