Description: Kydonia; serving 70 different Turkish-Greek appetizers and seafood with spectacular Bosphorus view in Kurucesme Istanbul and also in Alacati, Cesme.Kydonia serves rich and historical cuisine of the Crete island, based on the old repatriated family recipes that were brought by The Turks migrating from the island. Seven herb hash brown, olive wood smoked baby artichokes, mastic octapus are only a few of the delicious appetizers… Kydonia is the historical name of a region in the Aegean coast of Turkey, Ayvalık. It is also the name of a very unique and delicious seashell, which can be tasted at the restaurant.

“If food is a joy.... you have to go.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2011

I am not a gourmet at all.... But I enjoy food, very much, and nothing gives me more pleasure than sharing a true find, a gem that deserves everybody's attention.... If Alaçatı is your destination, Kydonia has to be your stop the very first night.... They are owned and operated by the same group who runs my most favorite resturant in Istanbul.... Great credits to begin with.... But the amazing dinner experience at Kydonia speaks for itself..... I am so proud that there are establishments out there who are aware of the notions that they are standing for.... Aegean cuisine at its best, to make things simpler, I'll attach photos of all the mezes (appetizers) we had at Kydonia, which I highly recommend.... Great service, great atmosphere, but most important of all...... great food.... simple and great.... What a night, what a feast.....
