Fodor's Review

Tucked away from the water on a vine-covered cobblestone backstreet in Ayvalık's market area, "Father Hüsnü's Place" has friendly service, cheap prices, and tasty food. The rice-stuffed mussels, zucchini fritters, lightly fried papalina (a small local fish), potatoes croquette, calamari, and deniz börülcesi (samphire) in olive oil all go well with a glass of rakı or beer. Plan on a late dinner (it doesn't open until 9 pm, at least in summer), and get a seat outside for the best atmosphere.
