“Great food and service”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

This is one of our "must visit" restaurants every time we go to Kalkan and it didn't fail us this time. The steaks, as mentioned by others, are always very good and this time I tried the grouper, which was lovely. It's quite informal and friendly.
It doesn't have quite the wow factor in terms of location as it's at street level, but it's a pleasant change in Kalkan to have a decent amount of space between tables, which the roof terrace restaurants don't have.
Mustafa is very welcoming and friendly, a really nice person.
The one thing I would change is the music which is not at all to my taste (a bit soft rock) and is a little too loud. It isn't bad enough to have stopped me going back though and I'm sure I will be there again next time.

“Amazing food and an amazing atmosphere”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

Quite simply one of the best restaurants in Kalkan, and that’s saying something! We both had some of the best steak that we had ever eaten. The environment is friendly and welcoming where nothing is too much trouble. If you’re lucky you’ll also get a visit from Aziz the Imam from the Mosque who provides lovely friendly and charming company!
Visit the Alternatif, you will NOT be disappointed!!

“Fantastic food and service.”
Reviewed 14 July 2012

A great restaurant next to the old mosque. All the staff were brilliant and the lambs liver for the main was gorgeous. Was so good that it was one of the three restaurants that we visited twice during our 2 weeks.

“Better sevice if youre female.”
Reviewed 14 July 2012

The food was ok but not top of the tree. We couldnt get much service as the waiters were paying too much attention too two glammed up middle age ladies, ( passport anyone?) and a loud cockney couple. Shame, as we have eaten here before and the service and the food was much better.

“Good but not outstanding!”
Reviewed 11 July 2012

Alternatif was very busy and there was a bit of pressure on turning round the tables, however the food, lamb shank and Turkish Moussaka were both very nice dishes without having the wow factor! As with so many of the Kalkan restaurants this year the choice of MOR Jazz music at above background volume, spoilt the "turkishness" of the atmosphere especially during the "call to prayer from the adjacent mosque.
