“Seafood at reasonable price”
Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

Lots of local meze, all delicious, fresh fish and customized service...the owner comes from Crete ans speaks also Greek, he is friendly and willing to feed your appetite. Try the raki and sit outside at a small pedestrian

“Fantastic food, especially mezes and fish”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Husnu, the proprietor and chef of "Hüsnü Baba'nın Yeri" (Father Husnu's Place) is a gifted cook and a real local character.
This restaurant is situated in an alley in central Ayvalik between the two main shopping streets in the vicinity of Halk bank. The facilities and decor are basic but the quality of the food makes a visit worthwhile.
Husnu specializes in mezes and seafood using the freshest local ingredients.
In the summer sit at tables outside in the alley or choose one of half a dozen tables inside.
You can view the food in the cold cabinet inside which will then be prepared for you.
Don't miss "Deniz Börülcesi" (samphire) or "Deniz Kestanesi" (sea urchin) if available.
The olive oil from Husnu's own trees is perhaps the best you'll find anywhere in Ayvalik which is the home of superb olive oil.
