Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

Original Turkish cousine with meyhane food, main dishes, and snacks (mezes). Amazing food. Must be visited.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

You cannot help but enjoy the small house from the minute the owner introduces himself until the time you leave and shake or hug his cook (who happens to be his wife!).

The food has taste - although we didn't have the meze to start with, this would be my choice next time. We had two bigger portions from the menu but the meze was a little bit of everything.

Our main course was fish which was very good - the couple next to us had meats and they enjoyed that as well.

The cost was very reasonable - you cannot go wrong with a meal here - enjoy!

“Superb!”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

Totally love this place, the meze is the best in Kalkan, lamb casserole just beautiful but what really makes this place special is the atmosphere; Jan and his wife are lovely, welcoming and interesting people. Very different to the other restaurants in Kalkan and in our opinion the most Turkish! We have booked again and always yor first port of call.

“Over hyped”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Interesting venue that was recommended to us, the atmosphere was OK, Jan was a good host however the food was below the standard we were expecting.
My Steak was low quality, my wife had the Lamb. both dishes were fatty & badly seasoned (very salty).
Perhaps we picked them on an off day but with so much competition on their doorstep they just can't afford to drop their standards.

“Great things, small packages!”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

We ate here yesterday (16th July) and were blown away by the setting and the freshest food. The family are all so friendly and helpful, water appeared and was gratefully received on a baking hot day. The food, mezze, omelette and calamari were all beautifully cooked and fresh as a daisy. We sat on the balcony and watched the world go by, what's not to like?
The patron finished our meal with chilled cherries on the (Small) House!
FABULOUS
