“Still excellent & now with WiFi”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Eat there last night with some friends & could not fault it. Excellent value, good service and locally priced.
Added benefit was the free WiFi.
Quite busy but the staff handled the crowd well.

“Stay away”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Cant vouch for previous reviews, but our experience was very bad. Five items were no longer available. When we finally picked, they gave us the last scraps of meat of the giant spit soaking in fat, instead of just saying not to take it. The famous garden patio is a pit with no air conditionning. Unclean practices. Disorganized kitchen. Very bad. Returned 3 dishes. Do not go. I would never write such a review unless i thought it was truly necessary. Unable to explain previous reviews.

“Excellent local restaurant”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Tired of the same old stuff around the pier, I was taken to this restaurant by a local. If you want authentic good Turkish food in the downtown area of Kusadasi, this is it! Very accomodating and friendly service. I only gave 4 stars because I am a vegan and my dishes were not as great as my friend's. So maybe that's not fair. But the meat dishes were very good and my friends enjoyed them. I also had a chili salad that was excellent. Good wine here too! All in all, it was the best meal I had in my numerous visits to Kusadasi.

“hidden gem!”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Found this place on the advise of a tour guide. First he recommended a restaurant right next to the port, but I asked him for where he would eat - and he named Avlu. It wasn't hard to find as it is not far from the main drag (1-2 minutes of a walk depending on how much you stop to shop)Have to say that this place was terrific! Good fresh food, excellent kebabs, great salads, AMAZING bread, good wine, great service, and inexpensive to boot! Dessert was also a must here! Definitely worth a stop if you want good, authentic food and a break from the cruise-ship fare or craziness of Kusadasi shopping. Family of four ate and drank extremely well for under 50 Euros with tip! And they were more than able to accomodate the kids... Language was also not a barrier at all...!

“Turkish food”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

I would recommend Avlu for everyone wishes to taste real Turkish food.
You can taste excellent food in good prices, where many local people use to eat lunch or dinner.
If someone wants to have a romantic dinner, or taste other cuisines should avoid Avlu.

I think that the best turkish meal I had, during my stay in Kusadasi was in Avlu.
