Coast restaurant to return on Süleyman Yılmaz Caddesi PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 07 December 2017

The new Coast restaurant

We bring you news of an interesting redevelopment in Kalkan old town.

The property in question is a derelict building on Süleyman Yılmaz Caddesi in front of Botanik Garden Bar and next to the Old Town Hotel & Cafe, which used to be an olive oil factory.

The building is still owned by the same family who are direct descendants of Süleyman Yılmaz, after whom the street was named.  The owners have agreed to rent the unit to Ömer Çalık who used to run Coast restaurant down at the harbour.  Ömer is planning to totally refurbish the old building in a sympathetic way that will showcase much of the original olive press machinery.

When we spoke with Ömer the other day he told us of his plans to bring the old building back to life.  But it's going to be a challenging project because as well as removing almost 30 years of accumulated debris and renovating the machinery, the building itself will require significant attention to bring it up to modern day standards.

The interior will have to be completely gutted and refurbished and Ömer is planning to use the roof top for additional seating and a bar area.

Many KTLN readers will be aware of the renaissance that has taken place along this street over recent years and this project, if it delivers to expectations, will be another enhancement to what is already a thriving thoroughfare.

Open in time for the 2018 season
We wish the team well in their aim to be open by 1st April 2018.  It is not certain what the name of the new restaurant will be, but the Coast brand is likely to be retained in some form.  If you have any suggestions feel free to let us know.

Below: After opening the doors for the first time in 28 years it is time to remove the contents from within.

Below: A glimpse inside the building.  Many parts of the olive pressing machinery are to be retained as a quirky feature of the new restaurant.
