Facing where the cruise liners dock Murat is a very accomplished cook and caters over a middle range of cuisine. we had some Hamsi (whitebait) served with a salad. I had a cheeseburger with a salad. We also ordered separately superb home cooked chips

We ordered only French-fries, which were not cooked (despite the fact that they didn't even look like French fries), they fried the same portion again, in the end I have the same patatoes but more burned.

We had a great breakfast in front of Kusadasi's small port in this nice small restaurant. The view is nice on the terrasse, especially when the sun is out! Very friendly service (quick service, we got some refill, and they even booked us a cab).
