Kalkan Restaurants; Trout Farm Restaurants

Several trout farm restaurants can be found in the mountains surrounding Kalkan, where water is plentiful and the views over the valley are beautiful. Everything here is always very fresh; the trout are raised on the premises and most of the produce used to create the delicious dishes is grown 'in house'. Non-trout meals are also served alongside the fresh trout and there is usually a good selection of mezze to choose from. The prices are lower than in Kalkan and most Islamlar trout farms have a collection/drop off service available to customers staying in Kalkan. It is popular to visit the trout farms during the summer months as the mountain air is often a few degrees cooler so can make for more comfortable dining. Further trout farms can be found near Saklikent Gorge and the Lycian site of Tlos, set in beautiful relaxing gardens with hammocks and an array of waterfalls.
