Located more in Kalamar than Kalkan but well worth seeking out, run by Ali and his staff the food and presentation are very good, my wife said her meal of spinach stuffed chicken breast wrapped in bacon and the dessert of chocolate surprise was the best meal on our holiday, I had seafood spaghetti and lemon cheesecake which was also...

Ali's House Cafe is always worth the trip (breakfast, lunch or dinner), very friendly and helpful staff, excellent quality food at very affordable prices. Always on our "must go to" list.

Ali and his guys really make you feel at home. Anything you want to know about the area he is a mind of information, he loves his food and gets very passionate when explaining his menu! We had a great meal there, the steak was cooked to perfection and his curry is the best in Kalkan! Would recommend if you... More

Came here a few evenings ago after searching trip advisor for something less pretentious, we're "all steak and sea bass-d out" and desiring a good garlicky bruschetta and a homemade pasta dish. This restaurant has excellent reviews and I don't think we chose the right dishes to give this restaurant justice hence why 4* and not 5 rating from me.... More

This was our first visit to The House and definitely won't be the last. Fantastic food,extensive choice and beautifully presented. Ali and his team are very welcoming and attentive. The stuffed calamari was delicious and my husband said his filet steak rolls were perfect. Thank you for a lovely evening. See you again soon.

Although based in Kalamar bay, we usually make the journey to Kalkan itself for dinner. At the outset of this holiday, after not having been for some time we decided to eat locally at House Cafe. So glad we did. The owner, Ali has a new chef and he can certainly cook! We ended up eating dinner there on four... More

We arrived in Kalkan very late and although Ali's chef had just left he called him back especially for us! The 4 of us all had something different and none of us were disappointed. We were so pleased with the food and the service that we returned later in the week when we had excellent fillet steaks, all with different... More

I have been remiss in not reviewing before. We have used The House for lunch and dinner over many years . This year, not only has the place improved its decor, but there is a change in the menu. Thank goodness some of my favourites like the curry are still there. Last night I had a really excellent mushroom starter... More

We were just looking for a place to have a drink and snack whole waiting for a night dive course at Kalamar Beach which is very close to the cafe. It is a nice place with delicious food and good people who work there. We had and great time and look forward to visit again during next trip to Kalkan.
