The nicest Seabass and home made chips I have ever had. My wife's meatball main course was fantastic too. Only 16 seats so book early. After every one left we had drinks with Jan and his wife at their converted and only balcony table. Superb. Limited wine selection if you are a connoisseur

We couldn't wait to get back to Kalkan for our annual treat at the Small House. We dined there twice this year but, in fact, ate there three times as Jan and his lovely wife also invited us to have breakfast with them one morning - and what an incredible spread. We always start our main meals with the mixed meze (by far the best in Kalkan) and on the second occasion had left it to Jan to source some local fish for our 7 main courses . Freshly caught, delightfully cooked, all together with our family and the most magnificent hosts - it simply doesn't get better for us. We are real foodies, and great ingredients cooked simply and well is impossible to beat - and the experience always stays ith us. Many thanks again, Morgan, David, Chez and the boys. PS - I think their girlfriends will be back with us next year as they were so jealous to have missed out!!

I ate here twice on my last visit to Kalkan. The owner and his family are so welcoming they cannot do enough for you. Food was fantastic not a particularly long wait for food but the ambiance and talking to other people all add to this dining experiance. Will be going again next year that is for sure.

Look up in Kalkans main street,you will find a tiny restaurant in the heart of town but so special and hidden.The husband and wife that produce such fantastic food must have elastic walls in the kitchen to be able to serve such wonderful food in such a "little House"(Kucuk Ev)Everything is home made with love and care,nothing is too much trouble and the icing on the cake is to get their one table on the balcony ,to enjoy your tasty meal watching the world go by below.Essential to book,worth waiting for!

We ate here twice during our recent trip to Kalkan, and were delighted to find a restaurant that stuck to the Turkish tradition. We have been going to Kalkan for 25 years and had been struggling to find restaurants that are truly Turkish and unspoilt.The family are delightful. Nothing was too much trouble. Food was delicious, and we were lucky enough to get the table on the small balcony twice. We wish we had known about it in the last few years that it has been open. We will certainly be visiting it again on our next trip to Kalkan.
