Was really keen to visit as so highly rated in Kalkan. Only 5 mins up from the steep hill if you’re staying in kalamar or kulube hotels. The house rose was delicious as I know some of the house wines are not such good quality....More

We’ve just come home from dinner in Yelken, the closest eatery to our apartment and were hoping for big things. The restaurant interior design was beautiful and leagues ahead of others in the area, the staff too were lovely and couldn’t do enough for you....More

Four of us ate here, the food and service were excellent and the prices very reasonable, ( due to the exchange rate at the time )

A little bit out of the way on the Kalamar road, but worth the effort. Great decor and service, but no view of the bay! Superbly cooked food and a varied menu but the wine a little expensive. Seafood medley and steaks are excellent, good...More

Visited Yelkens due to excellent reviews. It was also few hundred yards from our villa. Can only echo what everyone else has said. Fabulous, high quality food with service second to none. 10/10 for presentation. Even the vodka and coke was served up beautifully. Highlight...More
