The Kalyon Restaurant, which is situated only a short distance back from the sea-front (see map on its website), is a very pleasant place to eat. The staff are very friendly, and we particularly enjoyed their Kalyon 'Special-For two Person' (Beef,Mushroom,Cheese,Vegetables).
I went there several times for a drink because I really enjoyed the ambient and the music.
Unlike many restaurants and cafes, in Captain's place they play nice,relaxing music, mostly turkish Anatolian songs or other romantic world wide popular music.
In this restaurant waiters don't dance, don't run around you, don't try to become your friends, don't touch you,...they act in a very polite manner.
I liked the music and they told me to bring data traveler, and I did, they transferred all the music (1GB) from their computer so now I am listening and remember the nice evenings in Kusadasi.
Guests in this restaurant are mostly turkish people and tourist which stay in nearby hotels. Ambient-nothing special, but the food is great if you like pizzas.
Pide is some kind of a turkish pizza, taste is the same as pizza, shape is different, not circle but a line shape. It is very clean, you can see people when they prepare food.
Favorite Dish: Vegetarian pizza/pide.
if you are traveling to Kusadasi you must give it a try and I am sure you will want to return again and again, like my family My daughter celebrated her 21st Birthday and her Wedding here I also had my 60th Birthday here and each night was very good Thank you all.
Favorite Dish: House Special Kebab

This is one of the refridgerated displays of fish on offer at the Ali baba restaurant, choose from Tiger prawns, sea bass, mullet, lobster, squid, and loads more, the worlds your oyster, they got those too hahahaha.
The Ali baba is one of the most long established fish restaurants in Kusadasi. All the fish in this restaurant is fresh and on display in one of there glass fridges so you can choose exactly what fish you fancy, although the fish is not overpriced it is still expensive, but the quality of the food on offer is unbeatable anywhere in Kusadasi. The look on my dads face is one of complete happiness, until he found out he was paying, that wiped the smile off his face.hahahaha
Favorite Dish: You just have to try the lobster and callamari at Ali babas,Oh and the views over Kusadasi harbour are fantastic. It may be expensive but sod it your on holiday
This is a traditional clay oven used at sherwoods and the food that comes out of it tastes fantastic.
Favorite Dish: The garlic bread is out of this world, as you will see in the next photo.
