If you are going to Kalkan you must give the Authentic Restaurant & Bar a visit. This place has all you need, fantastic food, fantastic staff and a great atmosphere. We had so much fun with Muzaffer, Mehmet and the boys that we visited many times during our two week holiday. It's a great place for people watching whilst having... More

Went here with my family in half term. Food was excellent and we shared meze starters. Had been here 6 years previously and was still as good. Friendly staff and welcoming to my kids. They especially loved the downstairs cushioned relaxing area and the puppy who was there! Definitely recommend it!

A comfy and relaxing traditional Turkish seating area with water pipe. Delicious cocktails (try the Chocolate Monkey) The friendliest staff in Kalkan, and the cutest puppy "Chappy." We loved it so much we went... More

We chose this place at random and if we were frequent visitors to Kalkan I think this restaurant would end up being a reliable favourite we'd go back to on a regular basis. There's nothing particularly outstanding about it, but everything was simply very good - nice rooftop terrace, decent menu choice and tasty food, charming service and decent prices.

We visited the Authentic on our last evening in Kalkan. The food was fabulous and the staff were so welcoming. We were also entertained with very clever card tricks by the owner ( we are still puzzled as to how he did it). We can thoroughly recommend this place and the bar downstairs is very traditional Turkish with floor cushions... More

After visiting last year a few times for drinks we thought we would give the restaurant a go this year. We're happy to say it did not disappoint and we only wish we had gone there sooner for food!
