A Russian restaurant in Bitez? We were curious about such a brave venture and had the opportunity to enjoy lunch at Kalina this week.From the Matryoshka dolls to the embroidered table cloths and curtains, and with Ivan Rebroff crooning in the background, the mood was set. The menu is extensive and we started with caviar which was served on very elegant crust-less toast which had just the right amount of delicate, buttery flavor.
Currently on a rather embarrassing mayonnaise fetish, I thought the Mimosa salad was spectacular, followed by fish koftes with two dipping sauces. Born and bred in Kiev, sturdy chef Svetlana means business and Ukrainian dishes are also widely featured.
Kalina is located adjacent to the tennis courts on the southern side of Bitez Bay a few meters in from the beach and about 15 minutes from central Bodrum.
