Along with its partner restaurant Lemon tree this became a favourite spot for food or just a glass of cool limonata. The staff are friendly and fun, Mehmet and his nephew Peso are like a comedy double act. Watch out for his cocktails which are delicious but pretty potent! Our favourite meals were the mixed mezze along with the restaurants... More

Best Meze, delicious, don't be put off by the location. Excellent service and great food. The restaurants cat was annoying as sat watching constantly actually jumped on the seat with me! Very friendly staff who were on hand to help decipher the menu and offer suggestions.

Spent one evening at this restaurant, the food was lovely and the service was very good too. The staff were very helpful in choosing our meal and their English was very good. We were offered free complimentary drinks at the end which I thought was a nice touch. Good luck guys

We always visit the Lavas as their prices are very reasonable. They are not located on the beach just up by the shops. The chicken curry we think is the best in Bitez. I had it twice and my husband also had the chicken casserole. The cheese rolls as a starter are very tasty too.

Very pleasant staff especially Mehmet Ali who speaks excellent English and always tries to accommodate your requests with politeness and humour. Stick to what they specialize in - freshly made pizzas to order and kebabs - they are relatively cheap and delicious. The restaurant is great with kids. It is just up the lane from the beach next to shops,... More

The lemon tree has been and will always be a fantastic place to eat and drink. The staff and food is incredible and will always return! The New Lavas restaurant they opened is equally as brilliant and the food is great and staff also. Thanks for good times! Firat, Mehmet and gülsah! See you again one day.

Recommended by others. We opted for the Turkish speciality section. Children had lamb and chicken in a wok which they really enjoyed. Mezes for starter was a real treat. Looking forward to visiting again.

Lavas is set one street back from theo beach at Bitez. It is a very popular Restaurant, not new, us having been two years ago as well as this year - please try and find it as it could do very well on trip advisor - especially as the forums speak highly of it too.
