About Us

It is said that the simplest thing in the world is to prepare baked aubergine stuffed with onions, garlic, tomatoes and sweet peppers. Yet, when the Priest, whose wife created this dish, first tasted it, he fainted! Hence, this famous Turkish dish is called “The Priest Fainted” or “Imam Bayıldı” and became the inspiration for our restaurant’s name: Aubergine.

Aubergine Restaurant is open daily all year round for breakfast, lunch and dinner or for just tea/coffee & cake. Children are welcome in our restaurants both for day or evening.

We are pleased to cater for large groups and host special celebration parties when we can personalise your evening by organising cakes, table decorations or even your favourite music. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Our menu offers a variety of freshly caught fish and seafood, meat, poultry and vegetable dishes all made using only the finest quality of local produce, most of which is organically farmed. All our dishes are freshly prepared and cooked to order Likewise, our wine list includes a wide selection of fine wines from various regions of Turkey and beyond.

Head chef and proud owner of Aubergine since 1996, Mehmet Bilgic has an impressive culinary background. Having worked in the restaurant business for more than 20 years, his love of cooking has taken him outside Turkey to some of the finest restaurants in Europe. Here he gained an extensive knowledge of French and Italian cooking which he has combined with traditional Turkish cooking methods to create a more healthy and varied menu of new and traditional dishes.

Assisted by first chef Tuncer and second chef Mustafa, both of whom have over 10 years experience, Mehmet and his team invite you to share in the pleasure of Aubergine's unique menu of Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine, at what is now widely regarded as one of the finest restaurants in the Antalya region.

    About Kalkan

    Kalkan is a town on the Turkish Mediterranean coast, and an important tourist destination. The area includes many historical sites (such as Tlos and Kekova) and many fine beaches (including Patara Beach & Kaputaş Beach).

    Kalkan is an old fishing town, and the only safe harbor between Kaş and Fethiye; it is famous for its white-washed houses, descending to the sea, and its brightly colored bougainvilleas. It averages 300 days of sunshine a year.

    Until the early 1920s, the majority of its inhabitants were Greeks.[1] They left in 1923 because of the Exchange of populations between Greece and Turkey after the Greco-Turkish War and emigrated mainly to Attica, where they founded the new town of Kalamaki. Abandoned Greek houses can still be seen at Kalkan.

    Kalkan was an important harbour town until the 1970s as the only seaport for the environs. It declined after construction of Fethiye road but revived after the emergence of the tourism industry in the region.

    Although part of the Antalya province administratively, Kalkan is connected more closely to Fethiye economically and for transportation.

    British newspaper The Independent listed Kalkan among the best tourist destinations for 2007. The paper recommended Kalkan especially for those seeking a romantic vacation and who do not want to travel far from their home country in Europe.
