Kalkan Restaurants And Wonderful Food
Kalkan is possibly most renown for its wide selection and high standard of restaurants located on top of roof top terraces in the sOld Town overlooking the sea or along the harbour front. Dining out in Kalkan is therefore a real pleasure and deciding which of the many excellent restaurants to try becomes part of a Kalkan holiday.
Aubergine: Popular Restaurant On The Harbour Front
A range of dishes can be found, with menus of traditional Turkish favourites such as kebabs and mezes mixed with popular European cuisine. For fish lovers a number of restaurants specialise in sea food caught daily in the Bay and displayed nightly outside the restaurants for customers to select from. Fish is sold by weight not by menu price so confirm the price with the waiter when you order.
