Kalkan Restaurants: Rooftop Edition

Dining alfresco is a long-standing tradition in many cultures, and Kalkan restaurants offer some of the best rooftop dining experiences. Set against the starlit bay and harbour backdrop, an evening meal at a magical rooftop restaurant is soothing, reviving, and deserving of savouring. It is incredibly wonderful and impressive to emerge from the stairs onto a welcoming rooftop with panoramic views. Rooftop views are inimitable; they are specific to the building, that Old Town locale, and that particular moment. Let us take you on a walk through some of the most popular Kalkan restaurants in stunning rooftop locations.


Lal Restaurant

Named after a famous Turkish Rose wine, this Kalkan restaurant offers dining on its roof with breathtaking sea views. Providing a wide range of wines and Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine from one of Kalkan's most experienced chefs. Securing a seat on the top terrace is a must if you visit this restaurant, as you feel you have the highest viewpoint in the town.

The fact that Ayhan, the proprietor, is a devoted host who individually looks after all his visitors makes the experience truly exceptional. Together with his amiable staff, he gives the impression that you are dining in a private home rather than a restaurant.

Mey & Meze Terrace Restaurant


If you are looking for high-quality cuisine in a low-key and friendly setting, Mey & Meze is an excellent choice. The street side bar on the entrance floor is ideal for admiring the Old Town tableau and people-watching. Have your first drink here while you peruse the menu before heading up to the pretty roof terrace to dine with a central view of the bay and islands and a great perspective on the carpet of ambiently lit Kalkan restaurant terraces. The menu offers a tempting mix of international cuisine with some Turkish favourites, but the signature dish of stuffed courgettes is not to be missed!

Korsan Fish Terrace


As the name might suggest, this elegant Kalkan restaurant specialises in seafood and executes its dishes with precision. On the roof of the Korsan Meze Restaurant, the Korsan Fish Terrace boasts an outstanding view of the bay and beach. It remains one of Kalkan's most popular eateries.

The Fish Terrace serves delicious regional fish meals infused with Mediterranean flavour and is dubbed "one of the most fashionable watering holes on the coast" by travel writer Jill Crawshaw in the Sunday Times Travel Section. Fresh fish served off the bone is part of the consistently inventive menu. There are plenty of options on the "not so fishy" menu, so don't worry if you're not a fan of seafood. The wine list features many Turkish wines, including more expensive options and well-known classics.

Sade Terrace Restaurant


This intimate roof terrace is famed for outstanding steaks and is long established in the Kalkan dining scene. Tucked away on a little side street just off the main Old Town stretch, the entranceway leads up through winding steps to a small terrace with a cosy corner for sipping cocktails and a few tables for dining with views of the Old Town street. Sade is one of the pricier establishments in Kalkan, but the food is executed to perfection, and if you are a steak connoisseur, you will be in heaven. Spaces are limited at Sade, to its best to pre-book to avoid disappointment, and if you are planning a romantic evening, request seats on the private balcony for a unique ambience.
