What a lovely location, and the food and service matched: very reasonable prices for the quality of food and a restaurant we will happily use again when we next visit Kalkan.

Always have our first meal here on a visit to Kalkan. Great food and wine at reasonable prices. You must try the crispy aubergine fritters with the hot dip. My God it's good.

Akin has had several incarnations over the last 20 years but we can honestly say that we have never had a bad experience there. Good food, charming service and a great position just above the old town mosque. Well worth a visit.

Stopped in for lunch. Fabulous friendly service, and quick. We had the pizza which was great, and the chicken shish. The chicken came with great fresh vegetables which were fantastic and tasty and the rice tower was perfectly flavoured.
