Fresh food in a charming garden

The Oleander owners could be proud of fresh pomegranate juice, that has no usual peel bitterness. We were lucky to order grilled fish and mix salads several times. All meals were delicious. And the best thing was garden sitting and very friendly and helpfull service we`d got.

We were thrilled the first time we went: candles, friendly service, gorgeous food and a great atmosphere. As a result, we decided to eat at Oleander on the last night of our wonderful week in Cirali too. I wish we hadn't! The service this time was rather abrupt, everyone's food was pretty tasteless and the chicken dish I had was... More

We had the worst food experience here during our 10 days stay in beautiful cirali. The bolognese pasta was easiest the worst bolognese I've ever had. Totally unspiced with weird tasting meat and almost no tomato. They kindly changed it to a neapolitana, which was also pretty tasteless but after adding a big amount of pepper and salt acceptable. Small... More

Nice place, good food, waiters and owners very very kind and considerate. The location is near the see under trees... candels, cold white turkish wine and good fish. We have been there twice for dinner and every time they offered us fruit plates and raki! Prices are very good, starters, sea bream, calamari, salads and good wine about 100 TL... More

We came here today for a late lunch. We were the only ones at restaurant and asked if kitchen wAs still open - of course they said and we were ushered in. We were here as family with two small kids 5 and 3. So highlight was that the children got to play in a small playground area whilst we... More

I eat here with my girlfriend. The restaurant is very cute and the fish fresh and very good. Perfect place for a dinner far away from the crowd of the beginning of Cirali (near Olympos). Staff polite and price low. Come here without doubts.

The Oleander is a lovely restaurant with a large dining terrace in the back. Ordered two meze plates and the seabass which was cooked perfectly. You can choose the meze plates from the kitchen and although the portions were small it was tasty. Good service and good food.
