very high quality of food and very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend. We were lucky to get a table albeit quite late in the evening but I understand it is advisable to book

Having visited The Olive Garden for lunch and dinner a few years ago, we were keen to return. The welcome was great, polite and encouraging however the food and service did not match! Overall a very disappointing and expensive meal which will not be repeated. Curry in a beef stroganoff and cheese smothering a prawn casserole was not expected and... More

We visited this place on a recommendation and we're very glad we did. The place itself is absolutely beautiful and worth visiting for the views alone. The food is also great - we ate the homemade kofte meatballs with sides of Houmous, Salad & Rice. We were staying in Olu Deniz, Kabak can be accessed via a Dolmus (bus) from... More

What a beautiful place! Surrounding, set up, excellent food! BUT.. We couldnt really enjoy and be relaxed on what suppose to be a chillout place. From some reason: We took half board- strict and way too early eating time. Breakfast till 10 and dinner at 19:30 max. Staff were obsessed with getting all the guests eating on time. For us... More

We discovered the Olive Garden last year after spending a morning at Kabak beach. We had such a wonderful afternoon there we promised ourselves we would return again and spend more time this year. The entrance is just a short walk back from the last Dolmus stop at Kabak up in the mountains and at first starts as an insignificant... More

We happened upon The Olive Garden in our ramblings around the steep hills of Kabak and sat down well for a meal well into the afternoon. We were most impressed with the beautiful stone paths and treed setting overlooking spectacular Kabak beach. But what was even more impressive was the delightful service and exquisite meal with its attention to detail.... More

I've read about this place on TA before going to Olu and I really want to thank the reviewers for pointing others to this place! The afternoon spent there was the highlight of our holiday! We took the Dolmus from Olu to Kabak, about half an hour drive. We didn't find it as scary as others said it would be,... More
