Do you want to make your holiday dining really special? Take a look at our private catering services. Grapevine Catering offers two main ways for you to enjoy our delicious Turkish/British/International catering, all homemade from scratch and fresh for you.

Eat With Us – Private Parties

Get a small group together and come and dine at Villa Cennet Bahcesi. You can enjoy delicious homemade food whilst watching the sun set over Patara. Both indoor and Al Fresco dining options are available, as well as pre and post dinner relaxation in one of our seating areas. We can also arrange transport to and from the villa from Kalkan and the surrounding villages. These evenings are great as a special treat or perhaps as a special celebration.

Eat With Us – Theme Days/Nights

From time to time we organise themed food events, so maybe an English Afternoon Tea, a Curry Night, a Turkish BBQ night, or even a traditional Sunday Roast afternoon. We open these up so smaller groups, couples and individuals can join us without having to find people to make up numbers. They are very popular in summer, so do keep an eye on our Facebook page for upcoming events and book in as dates are announced.


Private Catering Services at Your Villa/Apartment

Kalkan is not short of fabulous restaurants, but about 75% of the accommodation in the area is self-catering. Here at Grapevine Catering we provide the answer on those evenings when you want to eat great food, but going out seems like too much fuss when you are settled in your own space, and cooking is too much effort. Very simply, we come to you, cook you a fantastic meal and can even do the clearing up afterwards. All you have to do is move the few short steps to your dining table, and enjoy.

Cookery Lessons

If learning to cook new dishes is on your wish list, then we can offer you a range of cooking experiences. Deborah can teach on a one2one basis or small groups, British, Turkish or Mediterranean menus, a single dish or a full dinner, meze buffet, etc. Get in touch to chat to Deborah about a bespoke package to suit your requirements.
