Lunch at Kalpazankaya Restaurant in Burgazada

Hello all,

I have decided to organise yet another event due to the high demand :) I have been to this restaurant myself with my colleagues and all I can say is that it has a fantastic view and also the food is great! They do not have a menu with prices to send out but I will contact them today and get the prices of some food/mezzes etc. so you will have an idea.

It is at the top of Burgazada, so we can get on the horse carts which cost around 30TL (takes 4 people) to get there or we can walk up which takes around 30min! Will provide more info about the food and the time when to meet in Kabatas to get on the fast ferry later on, just wanted to open this event asap since it is this Sunday!!

One thing; since it is a very popular place especially at the weekends I would like you to let me know if you say you will come and can not make it in the end. They will want to know the exact number of the people who will attend.

    Hello everyone. I am sorry for missing the event. Arzu, you are definetly right. I should have informed you about my status. However, I was planning to come until the noon time yesterday. There is no excuse, but I had an emergency for my job, so couldnt leave my laptop. It is very rare for me not to join a program if I rsvp'd. But it happened. I am sorry again and thank you for organizing the event. Looking forward to joining you on upcoming events. Enjoy your week...

      Hi Orhan, Thanks for your message! I understand. Well we are going to watch a flamenco show and then just spend some time together. So join us if you have any chance this Friday!

    Hi everyone,

    Thank you everyone who attended! we had loads of fun having a lovely lunch, watching the wonderful view, walking down to the pier! We will go back there :)

    Also I do need to say that I am disappointed that 12 people said they were going to attend and only 6 attended! I do understand that something else might have come up but I would expect those to say that they are not going to attend, just sending a two sentence message here. I do make the reservations at the restaurants, telling them that we are going to the this number of people. I mean it was not a big issue yesterday since it is a busy place and I could call them on our way to inform how many we were. But I would like you to be more responsible about this. I heard that there is a way that you can define the people who say they will come. I am afraid I will have to do that! Sorry.

    Stay well and have a good week ahead!

    for me every thing is ok I trust your choice and i love fish :P
    manjit she will not take the menu she will order her self a salad or any thing else.......:))) see you ps; looking forward it! i wish it was today! :))))

    September 7, 2012

    • arzu o.

      that is good! yes she will also enjoy the food I am sure! thanks darling for trusting my choice, but all my colelagues loved it and the food was good :) only two days to go !!!

      September 7, 2012

  • Noelle

    hey arzulitta for people not eating fish normeat like my friend manjit... can they order freely a sald or some thing else out of the menu?

    September 6, 2012

    • arzu o.

      hi darling I am sure that is not a problem. Bec when I went there with my colleagues, one of them did not eat meat and she just had more mezzes separately on her plate from the mezzes on the table. so i know it is ok! xxx

      September 7, 2012

    • Noelle

      ok

      September 7, 2012

  • arzu o.

    Hello again everyone :) not much left to our lunch hey!!!
    I just want to actually apologise taht I let you know about the fix menu later on, after creating the event!! sorry!!! but the restaurant told me taht if I wanted to make a reservation for more than 10 people, we had to have fix menu otherwise it would be too chaotic for the kitchen to prepare different food for everyone at the same time at the weekends! that is why we have to go with fix menu, well i asked for the cheapest fix menu option!! and that restaurant is a little bit price, and if we want to have anice lunch i guess the bill for each of us wil lcome to the more or less same amount wspecially when the alcohol is included!!

    but if we are less than 10 people, we can choose not to go for fix menu and pick whatever we want over there! I leave this up to you!
    Let's just have a fun day!!!

    September 7, 2012

  • Noelle

    arzu from kabatach ferry is 5 lira but don t know its fast or not....

    September 7, 2012

    • arzu o.

      I think it is not the fast one! i eas trying to be efficient. if everyone is happy just taking the normal boat i am fine w that too, that would reduce the cost surely.

      September 7, 2012

  • arzu o.

    So I recommend that we meet at 12:15am in front of the fast ferry station in Kabatas on Sunday to get on the 12:45am one. Some might take the fast ferry at 5.30pm or 8pm when returning on the way back as they prefer. If you like to check the fast ferry options yourself pls find the link below (pls also be aware that there are the other ferry option which takes longer but cheaper. And I am sure they have more options especially for the Asian side. So if you will be coming from the Asian side pls check the timetable for that, I will try to get hold of the timetable but can not promise or if anyone gets a chance to go to Kabatas, pls let us know the timetable for Burgazada);

  • arzu o.

    okk okkk here is the fast ferry options from Kabatas to Burgazada and Bostanci to Burgazada :)

    Actually fast ferry does not run from Kadikoy to Burgazada and there is only one option from Bostanci too :( So the ones living in the Asian side might prefer taking the normal ferry not the fast one or come to Kabatas, meet the majority there and we go together.

    so here are the options:

    1-
    Kabatas - Burgazada=
    leaving at 10:45am and arriving at 11:20am
    leaving at 12:45am and arriving at 13:20pm ( I think we should take this one, the prev. one gets there too early)

    Burgazada - Kabatas=
    leaving at 17:30pm and arriving at 18:05pm
    leaving at 20:00pm and arriving at 20:35pm

    Token: 9TL each way

    2-
    Bostanci - Burgazada=
    leaving at 09:10am and arriving at 09:50am

    Burgazada - Bostanci =
    leaving at 20:55pm and arriving at 21:10pm

    PS: No fast ferry from Kadikoy.

    Token: 5.50TL each way

  • Noelle

    thx arzu I m absolutely defenetly inn

    I have been today to cabatash and took time table but its turkish so don t know how to communicate to it but all what i can say there are frequent boat to the big island....

    September 5, 2012

    • arzu o.

      hi Nawel, I think fast ferry is the best option so we get there quickly :) I am just checking the timetable and will release here soon ! xx

      September 6, 2012

  • arzu o.

    One more thing!!! you can tell I am not a professional right :)
    Ok the price which is 65TL is if you pay in cash, but if you pay by card then it is 75TL :( sorry

    September 5, 2012

  • arzu o.

    Sorry forgot to add that, the price above (65TL) includes 1 big bottle of raki for every 4 people or 2 beers/2 glasses of wine/fruit juices for every person. Also they want me to let them know the number of people latest by Thursday or Friday otherwise they accept reservations from the clients calling them for the weekend. Thanks

    September 5, 2012

  • arzu o.

    Hello helloo!!

    Updates about the food at the restaurant! (will update you about ferries / the time when to meet in Kabatas soon).

    I have bargained and lowered the price for the fix menu from 75TL to 65TL - I am getting better and better at this :) The fix menu covers the food below;

    Starters (mezzes): Grilled peppers + aubergine salad + mackerel with soy sauce + marinated sea bass + feta cheese + melon (every 4 people get one of all these dishes)

    Side Dish: Roll borek with cheese (sigara boregi) + calamary + salad (every 4 people get one of all these dishes)

    Main Dish: Grilled sea bass/squid/lamb on the skewer or meatballs Plus a plate of fruit.

    I guarantee you that they serve you very generously so you will not leave the table hungry!! :) Keep Well
