“Fantastic restaurant, worth a detour wherever you are!”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

I had read numerous reviews about this restaurant. I had an opportunity to visit it this weekend and it was a fabulous dinner. We had the Anatolian tasting menu and every single dish was delicious. Worth every lira we spent on the dinner. Will definitely visit again!

“Very memorable experience”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

If you can afford it this restaurant is worth making a special trip for. Situated on a hill overlooking Alacati it's 5 or 10 minute walk from the town centre. Dining on the terrace and watching the sun set is very nice. The food was very good, many dishes are cooked over wood and have a lovely smokey flavour. We were there for 3 hours and I was absolutely stuffed when we rolled back down the hill. Cost for 2 people with the tasting menu, a cocktail each and a midrange bottle of wine was 565TL (approx £165). No service charge or charge for bottled water which was refreshing at this level. Good value when you consider the number of staff involved.

“A rival to Per Se”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

An extraordinary dining experience that would rival the best restaurant anywhere in the world. When we arrived we were greeted by the entire staff at the door and then seated on the terrace overlooking all of Alacati. The presentation was fabulous either on stones or handcrafted ceramic dishes and bowls. We were served about 20 courses, each fantastic combinations of the freshest food we've ever had. Our waiter, "white colt" was attentive and charming. Alancha is worth a detour and will soon be noted as a "destination restaurant" thanks to a fabulous review in US Vogue.

“Dining experience second to none”
Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

The best, most elaborate, delicious, interesting, and unique dining experience you will ever have. The Rolls-Royce of restaurants. Start with a cocktail while overlooking Alaçati, then move on to a 25 "course" meal. Pair with 3 or 4 kinds of wine. Be prepared to spend $200 (USD)/person (about 400 Turkish lira) and spend about 3 hours end to end.

Words can't describe it! Medium budget, high quality. Great view! Good service, great atmosphere. You should also try food bar. You won't regret it.
