“One of the best in Kalkan”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Minding our own business, mooching about as you do, we were lured by the very friendly owner into this restaurant, the last one on the harbour-side. It is perhaps slightly at a disadvantage in terms of its position, but well worth evading the charms of the flashier cafe bars to indulge in a more traditional Turkish fare.

The owner explained how Turkish pizzas (Pide- prounouced Peedah) are made, that they are boat shaped and can be served open or closed. We had seen other diners raving about Pide so it was about time I tried this local delicacy.

Firstly however we selected starters of Kalimari (wow!) and fantastic borek (hot cheesey pastries).

The Pide I chose was one of tender roast lamb which came in chunks with tomatoes and herbs. The owner was justifiably proud of the quality of his food and it was incredibly good. Just the right size for lunch without being over-filling. The other main was a seafood pasta, again ideal for a light lunch.

DEFINITELY try this more traditional restaurant if you get the opportunity. I doubt you will be disappointed.

Footnote: When, one week later we were thinking about where we would most like to have lunch, we ended up at Lipsos again. Perfection in a Pide!

“Omar and his team make you very welcome”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We found this lovely harbour side restaurant by chance on our first night. Omar made us welcome and the food more than matched the friendly service from his hard-working team. He personally cooked salt-baked fish for a neighbouring able on a flame-lit trolley nearby, and we were all treated to his dramatic fire-breathing finale. The children were spell-bound and insist we must go back. The food is another good reason to want to. Delicious fresh sea bass (one in prawns and cream) and one simply pan fried, tender chicken with bacon (to our surprise, in a Muslim country); nothing disappointed. The wine list was extensive including good local rose fairly priced, and service that looked after us so well. The view around the harbour is very good but the best tables get booked early so make a reservation during the day. Highly recommended.

The food here is delicious! We had to wait for a table but it was well worth it. The staff are very friendly and the tables immaculate. Right on the harbour it's a beautiful spot..we'll definitely eat here again..and again!!

“One of the best harbour side restaurants in Kalkan”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Went there for a meal twice. Both times we were well looked after, the sea food is superb, had the sea bass and shrimps, very good. Going to Kalkan, make this a must go to. Best to book a table to avoid disappointment, full every night, and they end up spilling tables out onto the road.
