“Unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Great for a romantic meal, food great, reasonably priced food and drinks, the staff attentive but not intrusive, you have your meal in the garden which is very pretty then you can relax in the main bar lovely little place a must see when in Olu Deniz.

“A little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

We wanted to avoid the main drag and the associated hawkers so we walked around the edge and stumbled on this little place. A genuine owner who is interested and interesting and is apparently married to a lady from Sheffield. A good but inexpensive red wine was his recommendation. All main courses were very good, the baklava was excellent, the atmosphere and background music carefully done. Good pricing and definitely worth a visit.

“good meal quiet setting away from main strip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

The Secret Garden is located in one of the side streets away from the main strip in Oludeniz not hard to find and worth a little effort Entering through the bar area you then go down a few steps to the secluded garden area each table set between trees etc setting is quiet and quite romantic ,don`t be distracted by the white rabbit running around the base of one of the trees
Food is very good and reasonably priced service also good

“Inviting and Charming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

My third visit to OD and my first visit to the Secret Garden. Must have walked past it many times but never ventured in. So glad I did this time! Firstly, I only used the bar, not the restaurant. What a cosy, friendly place this is. The evenings were so chilly but the bar had a roaring chimnea going inside. Lovely! Could hardly bear to drag myself away. The staff are friendly and inviting, the decor and furnishings homely and cosy. The look of the restaurant downstairs is amazing, like going down to a very large cave. It is children friendly in that there is a large fish tank in the bar area which keeps the young ones amused but also in the restaurant is a young fluffy white bunny happily munching at the greenery, and also a tortoise (although I didn't see him). The only reason I didn't eat in the restaurant is because I am a solo traveller and, for me, the restaurant has a couple/romantic ambience. A couple I chatted to ate there 2 nights on the trot and told me the food was very good. Now I have found it, I will definitely be back!
