Cute cafe ran by a friendly welcoming English lady. Also had free wi-fi which is hard to come by in other restaurants and hotels in the area. Food is well priced, homely, simple but good. Would also recommend its sister restaurant; jewel of the nile if going out in the evening.

A lovely place to go for lunch or if you want a picnic bag. Nor far from the main hotels and a very peaceful place to sit and while away the time.

We used the Secret Garden quite often during our stay for a couple of reasons. The first is the wonderful food and drinks. It is a fantastic place to go for a light bite after those filling hotel breakfasts or maybe something more substantial. The coffee is perfect and beautifully served and the fresh juices are to die for! We... More

We were referred by another guest in our hotel - so glad we took his advice. This restaurant is truly hidden, you would never find it just walking around. Setting is exquisite, service immaculate and food excellent and well priced.
