We visited this small restaurant twice during our stay in Kusadasi and found the service and the food to be very good. I chose the Cheese & Mushroom Turkish Pizza twice it was so tasty! We found it by accident whilst walking down on the small side streets in the Bazaar....glad we did! Good prices too!

Situated at the bottom of the Bazar, it's a true gem of a restaurant with consistently excellent food. We always walk away from here with a simile on our face and an appetite well satisfied Bravo 👏🏻 yet again. We hear it's is particularly good at Lunch Time

Decided to try 3 restaurants, which get good reviews, but which we hadn't got around to trying yet, even though we have been coming to Kusadasi for many years - this one, Oz Urfa and Friends Restaurant and this one won by a short head!

This place is a real hidden gem. Went here with family. There was something to suit all of our tastes. I'd highly recommend the kor fasulia... Lovely little courtyard to sit and eat aswel out the back.

Low key, lovely place that has earned its reputation w years of honestly good food served in an outdoor, indoor or courtyard setting.

Really lovely food and friendly staff. Sit on the street or in the restaurant. Food is really very nice and the staff are always happy to advise but it is mainly used by Turkish people, perhaps because the food is authentically Turkish. Lovely.

Recommended by fantastic dress shop lady - you see food on display & the handsome young Turk will help explain & take your order. Delicious lamb kebab & Efes pilsner. Great bread & dips! Airconditioned & bright & cool!

...and my husband and I were not disappointed! The staff is very nice and helped us select a variety of meze. DELICIOUS! Our tour guide from Ephesus actually walked us over here herself when we were looking for something more local, as we would've never been able to pick out a place ourselves. We ate so much that we skipped... More
