The enchanted secret garden

We arrived at about 9pm, only two tables in due to how early in the season we were. They had an open fire in the corner of the bar and the garden part wasn't open yet, but we looked around in could easily imagine how wonderful that would be. It was a bit chilly , although not bad in the... read more

This was our second visit to Olu Deniz but our first visit to this restaurant which we found late in our holiday while wandering through the back streets and we actually visited the last night of our holiday. It was a superb ending to our holiday and far and away the best meal of our holiday. We had a lovely... More

Wow all I can say is good service and excellent food. No more needs to be said. Waiters were very friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. Highchairs very very clean from a OCD mums point of view.

Visited here from reviews on trip advisor. Lovely setting however all seemed a bit rushed . Very young waiters who were polite however didn't have the experience to make the evening special. Mixed meze was ok as a starter to share. My partner had chicken shish which was average. I had a chicken dish which was fine however not memorable... More

This restaurant is tucked away, but is not far from the main strip so it's easy to find. We had the seafood stir fry between the two of us and it was the best meal we had over our stay. It was well worth the Julio Iglesias-esque soundtrack! For the cooler evenings, see if you can grab a spot by... More

Traditional Turkish cuisine beautifully cooked, served by attentive staff and in a lovely setting. What more need one really say? oh yes, no restaurant cats here but instead a pair of floppy-eared rabbits. We never found out why, in spite of two visits, but they provided a certain amount of amusement. This is a really good restaurant and I would... More

This restaruant deserves to have a higher rating , they do not stand out on the pavement pushing you in the door they let you come in on your own accord and I'm very glad we did. The food and service was lovely, you get a puffa bread to start which is lovely, I had chicken stuffed with mushrooms which... More

As you enter from the street you're met with a great ambience, lovely atmosphere, very relaxed and a bit more upmarket vibe. Excellent serving staff. The tables are set in the nice garden between the trees so you have some privacy. I had the roasted veg clay pot, very nice, and plenty of it! It really is a Secret Garden,... More
