We've been visiting Kalkan for over 7 years, and this restaurant is one of our favourites. The service is impeccable and so is the food. The staff are so friendly and really make you feel so welcome. I'm planning to hold my friend's 21st birthday celebrations there and I'm sure they won't disappoint. Since they're recent move this year, they... More

Tha Alternatif has moved to the Main Street in Kalkan above and to the side of the Moonlight Bar. Many steps but next year there will be a lift! Food and service have no equal in Kalkan. Not having been for a couple of years and with the new premises I was worried that standards might have slipped. No worries.... More

Found out whilst having a drink that Alternatif had moved location which we were initially disappointed about...however, after attending the new location and learning the chef was the same one as before, we were not disappointed at all..in fact the meal was absolutely superb and as usual, the staff remembered us and made us feel very welcome! This place is... More

We have been to Alternatif a couple of times before in Kalkan, and yet again they didn't disappoint. Charming owner and staff. We went to their newer restaurant which overlooks the harbour and has stunning views across the bay - worth the walk up the steps. We were given some complimentary nibbles, and had just the best steak again with... More

Had a fantastic meal at Alternatif. The free meze starter was by far the best we've had in Kalkan. All the food was lovely and the service was great too. Can't wait to return.

We didn't eat here but called a few times for cocktails which were very good and not too expensive. There is a very big open air sitting area with cushions and tables and chairs separate on a patio. The good thing for me was even though there was a television on you could sit in a position where you didn't... More

Advised to go here for a really good steak and that is what we got. Quality delicious fillet steak cooked as requested and a pepper sauce. Service was attentive and friendly and we felt very much at home. Will return here next time when we want a steak.

I remember the 'old' Alternatif and pleased that they are still doing the business in the new location. It's not quite as charming any more but still a good place for a steak. For me probably top 5 though there are so many restaurants to try in Kalkan. Service was reasonable and I would probably think about returning when I... More

Great views, wonderful staff and glorious food. My goulash dish was excellent. We didn't order starters but a massive plate of dips, accompanied by warm fresh bread arrived, courtesy of the manager. A great place for an evening meal, it tends to be busy, so well worth booking!

Thank C H
