“Unique taste, Best seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

If you like seafood, you must go to Kalbur. Different taste, Always fresh, No surprises. Keep in mind to reserve your table two days before you plan to go. Restaurant is closed on Mondays.

“Go there if you want to be mistreated”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

Used to be an old favorite of ours... Used to have great food despite simple (not to say spritless) atmosphere. But both owners and waiters seem to be mislead by the overpopularity of the place: you do not feel welcome and are mistreated from the first till the last moment. You will be refused to be served if you go there after 9:30 pm. Go there if you like rude service...

“An old favorite of ours”

If you like fish, and especially sea food based mezes (Turkish tapas) this is the place to go. We go there every time we come to Ankara, and we have never been disappointed.

“Fish and more.. ; unique menu, excellent taste”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Kalbur is located at one of the hidden places in Ankara; if you are not a citizen or guided by someone local, it may be hard to find but definitely worth the effort you're gonna put in. The owner Mr.Mehmet and his wife is always there wellcoming the guests. The place is very small, with small tables very close to each other but you go there only to eat the unique and delicious food. Fish is always fresh; they only serve what they have fresh. But the peculiar thing about this place is that they have the very unique and tasty seafood mezze that you have never chance to eat anywhere since most of them are created by the owner. Especially the 'somon pastrami', 'shrimp with kadayif' and 'somon-asparagus' worth trying. They only have one kind of dessert which is something like 'ovened pumpkin with ice cream' is definitely very delicous. It is expensive, they do not accept credit cards, hard to find but definitely worth it. Don't forget to make reservations days before especially during winter time when they can not expand out and have a smaller place.
