Hosting cat tenants who wander around stealing seats from customers and a colorful notebook menu that looks like someone’s personal diary, Gravliya is one of the most laid- back places you’ll find in this area. Tucked into the orchards of Bitez, the popular spot is open year- round from late breakfast until late dinner and is favored by those in search of good, seasonal food, as well as freshly brewed coffee or Bodrum-made beer.
The menu on offer is light and healthy, with several generic staples, such as burgers (meat and vegetable) or pastas. However, before you choose something from the list, ask owner Tahsin Bey for advice. He’ll be more than happy to tell you what’s good that day, as well as what daily special is about to come out of the kitchen.
The welcoming ambiance of Gravliya will make you want to stay longer than a single meal. Luckily enough, there are guest rooms for rent and a private camping site available. Arrive by bike, and you’ll even get a 10 percent discount at the restaurant.
Open Tuesday-Sunday 11am- 2am. Limonlu Caddesi No.16, Bitez; T: (0252) 319 35 41, 0532 271 95 68; I: @gravliyabodrum
