A good option with a surprise touch!

Good food - nothing amazing but provided an opportunity for me to sample some local cuisine! Reasonable prices, lively atmosphere (even later into the evening), and a lovely setting - the name of the restaurant describes the latter perfectly!

We found this by accident as we were walking to the Strip. The atmosphere was great, an indoor, outdoor restaurant. We visited 3 times during our week in Oludeniz, during which time we had rain so the restaurant continued to serve by moving to the covered section. The food was excellent, and the restaurant owner was always there to chat... More

Read about this restaurant from other reviews and sought it out on our recent trip to Oludeniz. Was not disappointed. Not too hard to find on a side street off the main strip. Its like you are actually in someone's garden, full of trees and plants. The food was excellent, probably the best one of the holiday. Good choice on... More

We first went to the Secret Garden restaurant in 2001 and had a lovely evening. Going back this October Im pleased to say standards where still excellent from the service to the food. Its a welcome change to the rest of Olu Deniz which has sadly become more and more 'Brits Abroad'. Tucked away down a side street away from... More

Nice setting which only becomes apparent when you enter past the bar and into the garden.Reasonable price.Good food and good service.However not a place to visit if you are unhappy with the odd cat walking by whilst you have your meal.Its slightly off the strip so nice and quiet.

This restaurant is close to the main strip in Oludeniz, but a world away from the hustle and bustle there. No football screens and no loud music--just great food, served well. We went there twice and had great food both times.
