Last time I ordered off the menu (pide) and it was excellent. This time I tried some of the traditional foods that were offered in their buffet. All were excellent. This restaurant is one of my favorites in this town. Great service! All the locals come here. That should tell you something...

I enjoy pide in our local U.S. Turkish restaurants but what I had at Avlu was light and crispy, not so heavy and sharp in taste.

Great place to eat lunch, snacks or dinner. This is the place where locals go to eat. The staff were very attentive and all the food was piping hot.

The ready made is very good and varied from day to day. It is genuine Tukish cooking. We eat there often when we are in Kusadasi, and have always enjoyed our meal. Sometimes we order from fhe menu, my wifes favourite is Lamb casserole with cheese. I can also recommend it, as I can for everything I have tried. The... More

We had heard about the place, but never visited it before. The food was excellent. We went there with turkish friends and had them pick a whole meal for us. It was plenty of food and it tasted very good. The restaurant was a popular place so people had to wait for seating. After the first visit we would come... More

They have the food all nicely lined up for you to see and you can pick a few items with rice or potatoes and they'll warm it up for you. The taste is really good with a lot of flavour and the price is reasonable. The restaurant is on a bit of a side street but right next to the... More

We have eaten here three times in the week. Each time the food was lovely. We have to Turkey 6 times and this is one of the only place that provides quality authentic Turkish food. Highly recommended x

I read about this restaurant and given the great reviews wanted to try it. It is located in the Kusadasi old city market where all the bazaars are. Walking distance from the seaport. It took me a while to find the street but I am glad I persisted. The food was great and very reasonably priced. As a starter we... More
