Starting with a whole grilled calamari followed by sea bass, again grilled, it was one of the best meals we have had in Kalkan.
Wonderfully fresh and superbly cooked with an attentive and helpful host although I would like to see a wider choice of wines.

We have wanted to try Sunset for some time and opted for a lunchtime visit during our mid-October visit to Kalkan. The menu was interesting with loads of choice and even a few kid-friendly options on a children’s menu.

The traditional Turkish inspired entrees we ordered proved to be very tasty. Excellent in fact. The more western chicken dish was unfortunately average - so the lesson learned is to stick to the more locally inspired dishes.

The bill wasn’t cheap, but given the location and incredible view, that was expected. However, at this price range, we’d have expected a few fresh nibbles or freshly baked bread for the table, which we never got. Which is why Sunset only got a 4-star rating from our group.

The last night of our holiday and we wanted to experience the restaurant that trip advisor customers felt was the best restaurant in Kalkan. If the quality of a restaurant is based on the enthusiasm and commitment of the owner then you would give 5 stars but that on its own isn’t enough. Reading all the views on this forum we would ready for an outstanding experience but the night fizzled out into a nice meal that was similar to a number of restaurants in Kalakan but not at the level of ‘ best in Kalakan’ . 10 nights of eating out they would be at 8 out of the 10 restaurants we tried. Sunset is a good restaurant with a great owner

We were keen to try Sunset given the great reviews, and decided to have a quick lunch early in our week in Kalkan. The mezze platter was absolutely gorgeous, and if I had written this review then, I would have scored 5 out of 5.
However, we booked for dinner on what turned out to be their last night of the season, and were very disappointed. No bread/dips brought out, and average food. 35 minutes after main course was cleared, we got fed up waiting for anyone to ask if we wanted anything else, so we settled up and left.
Particularly disappointing since we had seen how good it could be, just a few days earlier.

Picked this restaurant over some others we were considering purely because of the TA rating. Firstly, there were some very frisky dogs getting over friendly around the tables and the staff made no attempt to move them on. We were a party of nine and the owners went out of their way to accommodate us without a booking which was great. They told us it was also their last evening of the season So this also may have affected our experience? We ordered the frozen lemonade and it was OK but again nothing extraordinary. This was the first restaurant where we didn’t receive bread and dips tapas on ordering - we were offered the mixed meze but when we received our bill we had paid for these....had we have known beforehand I think we would have made more of an attempt to clear the plates and some of our party may have been braver with trying new things! Main courses were good...I had the kofte with stir fried Veg tomato sauce which was sizzling and very tasty but only came with an accompanying spoonful of rice and two small potato wedges. This was the accompaniment to all mains which for some of the young men in our party was lacking. My eldest son ordered the tuna tomato spaghetti. When it arrived it was done in a cream sauce with mushrooms neither of which were mentioned in the menu. We thought they had sent the seafood spaghetti as that did mention cream and mushrooms but the owner convinced us the dish was as described. When we said he couldn’t have cream he replaced this with a Bolognese for us. Wine was nice for house red but expensive compared to other places we had visited. The honey chilli chicken and the arrabiata pasta were both on the spicy side but that was appreciated. Overall quite disappointed I’m afraid.
