On a day trip to Kuşadası from Selçuk, we had a late lunch in Avlu, in a narrow street just off the seafront, and enjoyed it very much. The chicken shish was one of the best I have eaten so far in Turkey, succulent and tasty, and my wife's mixed meze were also good. Friendly owner, too.

We had lunch at AVLU on our very first visit to Kusadasi six years ago, recommended to us by the staff we stayed at hotel. It is situated inside a bazaar near the port perhaps little difficult to find but if you ask any shopkeeper they will direct you. They serve typically authentic Turkish cuisine and at lunchtime, it gets... More

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! The things that set Avlu apart, I think, is the location, which is in a... More

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.

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.
