a wonderful resturant with wonderful staff. The food is amazing and always served with a smile. A trip to the farm is a must also. Some rustic charm with fantastic food and fun.

Normally we eat in the lower part of Kalkan or by the harbour. However this night we were all tired so decided to try Kaya. Doesn't have the location or views of the roof top restaurants and looks over a busy road near the roundabout. But the service and food were good. Not very busy, but very few places are... More

Ate here for the first time last night, having visited Kalkan 11 times before! We have always gone for the restaurants with roof terraces, or down towards the harbour, so avoided those like Kaya, which is on the road leading up to the market. How stupid we have been! My wife ate trout, whilst I ate sea bass, both having... More

Love Kadir and Erol who run this. Would like to see them with a fuller restaurant. They serve fresh, local produce, much of it from the family farm which is in the hills above Kalkan. Sad that the menu stays the same, think a little innovation might help attract more customers. My steak in brandy sauce was fine, but I... More

What this restaurant lacks in location it more than makes up for in value for money and entertainment. The dishes were delicious with a wide variety of options. We even had our own table magician, Abrakadir, who equalled any we have seen in the past! The restaurant also organises trips out for a day in the countryside, including a mezze... More

Kaya offers one of the best Turkish style breakfasts in Kalkan, absolutely the full table spread a proper Turkish breakfast should be! All served to you with a friendly smile and some decent conversation from the guys. If you fancy trying something different, then book yourself on their mountain BBQ trips, and head up into the foothills of the Taurus... More

The Kaya is a little gem. The food is wonderful as is the service. Nothing is too much trouble for the boys. We enjoyed a great day out at their family home, up in the mountains, along with another 10 or 12 people. It's a trip that they run every Saturday and Wednesday. It was well worth the 90TL (£22)....

We came to this restaurant on the 1st night we arrived. The food was amazing and once we had finished we were then told about their farm which they offer day trips to. The day trip is a relaxing day whereby the team offer food,entertainment, volley ball game in the pool, shooting and they have a bar to purchase drinks.... More

Kaya sources its fresh ingredients from its own mountain farm so the meat and vegetables in particular are amazing. The meze various with the seasons and is always fantastic - enough for a full meal - except then you'd be missing out on the wonderful duck, goat or lamb. Khalid and Erol are the best hosts, warm and funny -... More
