Where to Eat: Kalkan, Turkey


A long weekend in the Mediterranean Coast of Turkey is surely not enough; however, when you know you only have a day or two to stay in one specific area, eating and drinking right is an absolute must. My husband and I usually revolve our places to stay by the food, beauty & culture that surrounds it. We had one full day in Kalkan and I would love to share and recommend our lunch, dinner and after dinner drink spots!

The Brothers Cafe & Restaurant


Right upon our arrival, we knew this would be a great place for lunch as the two brothers welcomes us with open arms and friendly smiles sharing that ‘their home is our home!’ Wow, what a lovely start. To top it off, the food was fantastic with fresh and local Turkish ingredients. They offered grade recommendations and even presented us with a free starter.

Recommended Dish:
Turkish Chicken Kabab Wrap + Mint Lemonade

Our free starter: Warm Garlic Bread accompanied with Tomato Salsa Dip & Creme Fraiche
The incredibly refreshing mint lemonade
Turkish Chicken Kebab Wrap
Turkish Lamb Kebab with Almond Rice

Mey&Meze Terrace Restaurant


For our last evening in Kalkan, my husband and I were going for great Turkish Mezze and a gorgeous view. Mey&Meze accomplished both! Once again, the staff welcomed us with a warm and welcoming style offering us the best seat in the house. The food was perfect and the view was amazing. I recommend going for sunset!

Recommended dish:
Mixed Turkish Kebab with Mezze sides

Delicious Mezze Platter to start
Perfectly grilled Seabass with fresh salsa on top
Beef Kebab Skewers prepped to place them into wraps

The Fountain Terrace Cocktail Bar


Seeing that it was our last night, and we were so lucky that it was a gorgeous night, we wanted one last drink before we knew our vacation was over. The waiter from Mey&Meze recommended this lovely Terrace Bar. We ended up staying for two drinks as the music was perfect, the people were friendly, and the drinks were incredibly refreshing.
