Nice meze and papalina

We came here for lunch and were taken great care of! We are obsessed with the papalina in Cunda. It was great here...you can tell they keep their frying oil fresh. The olives and olive oil in the dishes were fantastic - you can't find bad oil when you are so close to Ayvalik. Octopus salad and... read more

We like this place because of memories...anyway mezes are always awsome. I like "warm vegetable plate - sicak meze tabagi" and "fish meatballs- balik koftesi". Before ordering fishes, please see them, ask the price and make bargain. Good for family with children, they have high chair.

I have been coming here for more than ten years. This visit the service was very slow, the tables too close to each other, the restroom needed servicing and the food failed to wow as it had in the past.

Best of the pack nowadays is 'Deniz' they told us before arriving to Cunda. It was really awesome. Other more expensive options were equially packed but we received great care and timely service from our fatherly waiters. Calamari and shrimps with butter were our favorites.

It is located in the sea side of the main square.. Their mezes and sea bass are good. We can suggest mezes: 'kabak cicegi dolmasi', 'girit ezme', 'yerli ot salatasi'. Servis can be better, especially in the crowded dinner hours they are a bit slow. The prices are moderate.. Recomending..

One of the oldest fish restaurants in Cunda. The owner and the chef Süleyman prepares the delicous mezes (the Turkish and Greek word for tapas). There is always quite a few of them prepared from seasonal herbs. Don't you ever miss the warm herb "sicak ot" prepared with the available seasonal herb, garlic yoghurt and chilly peppered butter souce on... More

We loved the taste of delicious fish in this restaurant. It was during our 2014 Sarimsakli holiday and we visited the Cunda island on a day trip. I must say the little journey and the view during journey deserves a 5 star itself. A must see

If you are in Ayvalik, you should not miss a visit to Cunda (Alibey) island. It is accessible with the car; more like a peninsula. Cunda is famous with its nice restaurants; Deniz is one of them. My favorite. There are many starters, maybe hundred different types of seafood, savory pies, authentic vegetables are sufficient to fill the table and... More
