We ate at this lovely restaurant on our last night in Kalkan and wished that we had come across it earlier. The have a cocktail bar next door so we had a drink before dinner. Very good food, wine and service. Would highly recommend.

We were tempted in by the waiter on the street, he seemed lovely, but it was soon apparent there were no free tables and so we were sat in the bar where we ordered a couple of drinks and waited.......and waited.......
Eventually after we had finished our drinks we were offered a table, it was off of the street where the atmosphere had seemed so welcoming, but we were hungry now so that was unimportant. We sat down and ordered 2 more drinks and our meals. The drinks arrived with some bread and a bowl of oil with a few disconsolate olives sat at the bottom, an unappetising appetiser which we left. We finished our drinks........ nothing. At this point we decided to pay and go but the waiter who was very sweet and a little embarrassed promised our food would soon arrive and gave us another couple of drinks on the house. So by now we had 3 drinks a piece and no food. Eventually the food arrived and, to be fair, it was pleasant enough, a kebab and vegetarian curry, but we were past eating really. Chalk that one up to experience, an experience not to be repeated.

Group of three visit. Very busy and staff were great.

Starters were nice & I ordered the lamb shank with special sauce for mains. Took some time to arrive which was expected. However when it did, it wasn’t very hot and as i ate it the lamb was nice enough, but did not seem to have a great deal of flavour (not cooked in the sauce as such) when i tasted the sauce on its own it was clear it was tomato soup!!

Sent it back and had the stir fry lamb instead. Better dish, more taste, but meat was a little tough.

They took the lamb off the bill, no no complaints re the service. Just the overall quality of the food did not match up with the price point

This restaurant is in a really buzzing street in Kalkan. The restaurant was very busy but the food was brought reasonably quickly by friendly hard working staff. The food itself was great, beautifully presented and very tasty.

Recommended!
