“Beautiful dining, friendly family, great food”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

As other reviewers have mentioned, Suleyman's has excellent food at reasonable prices, and Suleyman and his family are wonderful people.

I also love the ambiance of the place…Over time, Suleyman has artfully created a lovely garden with an assortment of seating choices, like cushions on the floor, reminiscent of my favorite restaurant in India, a large round table encircling an olive tree, or my favorite, a cluster of large tree trunks, cut to the right height for rustic table tops. There are large fragrant pots of basil, and grape vines (now heavy with grapes) are trellised into a green roof…if you enjoy nature, you'll love it.

Maybe worth mentioning…I have a sensitive stomach, and some types of Turkish tea cause trouble for me, but the tea here has never been a problem.

“A great little cafe”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

Recently visited for lunch, this is a great little café which serves simple food, well cooked. Family run and great value for money. We had lunch on market day, and then walked down from our villa to pick up sandwiches for lunch a few days - 6 TL for a chicken or meatball sandwich - amazing!
A lot of locals visiting which to us is always a good sign and if you pop in you won't be disappointed ,

“Authentic Turkish food and surroundings from a friendly family owned and run small business”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

Suleyman and his family are the true essence of Kalkan, providing a genuine welcome and warmth to all visitors, ensuring that no-one leaves hungry, and that everyone leaves happy. Kalkan itself is provides a very picturesque initial attraction, but it is the engaging and hard working locals like Suleyman that will ensure your return, year after year.
